HEY! HEY! HOW ARE OUR BOYS DOING? With NFL training camps opening last week, we're getting plenty of info on our beloved former Hawkeyes. Typically, we share what we can in INP but there's a lot here today. So, I'll share mostly tweet embeds from what we're seeing thus far in early camp from most of our guys.
Brooks Reed and Whitney Mercilus are in their familiar roles at OLB. The ILBs are Jeff Tarpinian and Justin Tuggle in the base 3-4.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) July 27, 2014
Add another to the #Eagles injury list: C Julian Vandervelde isn't practicing today— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) July 28, 2014
G Marshal Yanda has been best OL in training camp, reports http://t.co/JZR6lrhCIv Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley (ESPN)— Flowdec (@Flowdec) July 28, 2014
Tavarres King burning Charles Godfrey does not bode well for Charles Godfrey.— Nick Gray (@ngray_63) July 29, 2014
BRADLEY FLETCHER WAS MIXING IT UP. He and former Missouri Tiger wide receiver, Jeremy Maclin, got into a camp scuffle.

Shaun Prater looked impressive in W drill. Brandan Bishop planted really well, but dropped the INT— Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) July 29, 2014
Couple great catches in a few practices. Dinged up today, minor RT @AsleepT: Anything on CJ Fiedorowicz yet, or head still spinning?— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) July 29, 2014
C James Ferentz doesn't look like much & I'm guilty of judging a book by it's cover, but he impressed me today. Great leverage, technique.— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) July 29, 2014
MICAH HYDE IS HOLDING HIS OWN. The Packers drafted former Alabama safety Ha-Ha Clinton Dix but Hyde is holding down the starting spot for now. There's another Hawkeye safety also doing work with the Pack.
Nice play from undrafted rookie safety Tanner Miller when he knocks Ryan Taylor just as the ball arrived to force it incomplete. #Packers— Paul Imig (@Paulimig) July 28, 2014

Marvin McNutt drops a punt and goes to ground for pushups. His upper body will be in good shape at least. #Panthers— David Newton (@DNewtonespn) July 27, 2014
Big hit in RB vs. LB drill. Anthony Hitchens puts a lick on Joseph Randle— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) July 29, 2014
Anthony Hitchens brings a lot of pop with his pass rush— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) July 29, 2014
Seeing a few positive reports on Anthony Hitchens. He's not going to be Sean Lee 2.0 but I like the way he plays. Could be a solid rookie.— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) July 29, 2014
BAD NEWS FOR PAT.
Looks like po Pat Angerer has gotten hurt already. #Falcons— MoCutter (@1OfAKindaSorta) July 30, 2014
AND TONY, AGAIN.
#Bills TE Tony Moeaki on the shelf (again). Hamstring. Expected to be out "awhile": http://t.co/mOjJbGbNVm— Evan Silva (@evansilva) July 27, 2014
Scott Chandler has a groin injury, and Kevin Elliot has concussion like symptoms. #Bills— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) July 27, 2014
AND FINALLY, THE PLAY OF BROWNS CAMP COMES FROM A FORMER HAWK.
The training camp play of the day was #Browns LB Christian Kirksey intercepting QB Johnny Manziel and running it back for a pick-six. #NFL— Brian Dulik (@BrianDulik) July 28, 2014
