The NFL Academy is a first-of-its kind program that will offer UK student-athletes ages 16-18 the opportunity to combine education with life skills and intensive football training.Beckham will attend a tryout of more than 200 teenagers Clelin Ferrell Jersey , assisting in drills and skill development, as the prospects compete to win a place in the Academy’s first class. The Academy convenes in September.The Academy seeks to provide students with pathways into employment, further education and even the potential opportunity to play NCAA college football in the United States.The first class will consist of approximately 80 student-athletes and the final tryouts are scheduled for July 2 at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium. Several NFL players will assist in those final tryouts, including NFL Academy ambassadors JuJu Smith-Schuster and Efe Obada. Obada grew up in London and spent time in the NFL’s Player Pathway Program before earning a spot on the Panthers’ roster last season. With six jobs filled and two more tentatively earmarked for folks other than Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, why didn’t Bieniemy get one of the eight open spots in the current cycle?A strong argument could be made for Bieniemy. He’s in the spot that has produced Eagles coach Doug Pederson and Bears coach Matt Nagy Josh Oliver Jersey , both of whom have quickly become great head coaches. The Chiefs offense found a higher level this year, in Bieniemy’s first season as the O.C.“I think the biggest difference is the mentality,” Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said on the #PFTPM podcast in late September regarding the transition from Nagy to Bieniemy. “Coach Bieniemy brings a fierce, aggressive mentality to the offense. Kind of a gritty, punch-you-in-the-mouth-type of mindset http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey , and I think that has rubbed off on everybody, from Pat [Mahomes] throwing the ball aggressively down field. The play calling is a little bit more aggressive and, sure enough, everybody getting the ball has been a north runner. There’s not too much running sideways. Everybody’s getting downhill trying to finish the plays in the end zone.”The problem is that Bieniemy doesn’t call plays. Then again, Nagy only called plays for half of a season in 2017 Ryquell Armstead Jersey , a season that saw the offense sputter after a strong start to the season.The explanation could be more about the pursuit of quarterback whisperers, and Bieniemy’s lack of background in that area.“I think the big thing is teams are looking for quarterback guys,” one league source opined to PFT. “Matt, Doug are both former quarterbacks and former quarterback coaches.” Bieniemy isn’t.There’s still a belief in Kansas City that Bieniemy will become a great coach someday. For now, the Chiefs benefit. Then again Will Harris Jersey , they likely benefit either way; they’ve done a great job filling the pipeline with more great offensive coordinators, as their offensive coordinators become great coaches.
