Sam Darnold zipped pass after pass down the field Logan Paulsen Jersey Elite , knowing each one of them counted.
The New York Jets rookie quarterback was at his old stomping grounds of San Clemente High School in California last month, just a few weeks before being the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft , tossing ”smart” footballs equipped with computer chips calculating his every throw.
It was high-tech training that Darnold and Jordan Palmer, his mentor and a former NFL quarterback, believe will help him – as well as other signal callers around the country – improve skills through unique and meticulous data.
Darnold and Palmer are serving as advisory staff members for Wilson, which makes the official balls used by the NFL. The Chicago-based company has been incorporating technology and performance-based data with its Wilson X Connected Football, which debuted two years ago. Now, Darnold and Palmer are helping develop the next-generation version that will enhance film sessions and, possibly, on-field production.
”I think it’s really cool to come out here with Wilson and give them my feedback on what it really takes to be a quarterback and what I’m looking for in this data,” Darnold said in a video provided by Wilson, ”and help kind of build the prototype that is going to push this game to the next level.”
Wilson hopes to have the 2.0 version of its Connected Football technology available for a wide release to college and pro teams later this year. In the meantime, the company is gathering feedback from some players and coaches at both levels, including Darnold and Palmer.
”Before this technology, it was really just based on the eye, the naked eye,” Darnold said, ”being able to look at the film and based on a throw Troy Apke Color Rush Jersey , you might look at your feet, your hips or something like that, to tell you what might have happened, what might have gone wrong.
”Now with this technology, it gives us hard evidence, hard data to be able to look back on and figure out exactly what happened and what might have gone wrong and what we can improve on and keep improving as a quarterback.”
Darnold’s involvement with the Wilson technology began over a year ago when he was working with Palmer, who played in the NFL for parts of eight seasons and has become one of the country’s elite quarterback trainers. One of the biggest criticisms of Darnold at USC before last season was a glaring flaw in his mechanics: an elongated motion with which he’d drop his right arm a bit when he wanted to air out a pass.
After one of Palmer’s buddies told him about the first-generation Wilson X Connected ball, he decided to use it – and it confirmed his theory.
”I knew kind of how to fix it because it’s really just retraining muscle memory,” Palmer said in a phone interview. ”I knew that, but to try to get it to where it was digestible and understandable, where I could prove definitively that he shouldn’t do that, I just needed data to back that up.”
Palmer set up receivers in different spots on a field and had Darnold throw to them to see what distance Darnold lowered his arm more than normal.
”He didn’t do it on every throw,” Palmer said. ”We determined around 32 yards was when he felt like he needed to rip it, so he would drop the ball a little bit lower.”
Meanwhile, the Wilson football was gathering results from four data points: spin (RPMs), spiral efficiency, velocity and time of release – when Darnold’s left hand came off the ball as he was starting to throw to when the ball left his fingertips.
”What we determined is that it’s the same velocity, same spiral efficiency and the same spin Cardinals Christian Kirk Jersey , but the time of release was slower when he dropped it,” said Palmer, whose older brother Carson played quarterback for 15 NFL seasons. ”So, it was basically like, `OK, so you have a slowed release and you’re not gaining any velocity on this.’ So, that was eye-opening to where he went, `Wow. So, let’s go ahead and fix this.”’
Darnold and Palmer kept training with the football and used the data to fine-tune the mechanics of one of the most highly touted players in the country . The two were then asked by Wilson to help the still-developing training system get even better. While it wasn’t immediately certain if Darnold will use the upcoming advanced technology with the Jets during the NFL season, he and Palmer have continued during the offseason to give their thoughts and suggestions on the new product.
”It’s really kind of a peek into the garage,” Palmer said.
The chip inside the new Wilson Connected ball has higher-caliber sensors than the original, and the system is being designed to work within a team environment.
”You can record up to 18 balls at one given time and you go through practice like normal and you’ll be able to download all of this data that goes to a spreadsheet,” Wilson Labs engineer Dan Hare explained. ”From there, they can choose to import it into their video systems or review it with an analytics group or on their own.”
The new Wilson Connected Football System will also provide information based around play timing. That includes snap-to-release times and snap-to-target times, which will help perfect individual routes on offense.
”You look at this information and say, `Hey, based on my quarterback and what he can do, this is what my wide receiver needs to do in order to be in the right spot at the right time to get the ball fluidly Authentic Claude Giroux Jersey ,”’ Hare said. ”If your starting quarterback goes down, your second guy co All-Pro safety Kevin Byard believes it doesn't get much better for he and his Titans teammates: First learning from defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau and now Dean Pees.
"Just having two legends as coaches on the defense, man, I was blessed," Byard said.
Now, what the Titans' defense with look like under Pees, that remains somewhat a mystery. Neither Pees nor the Titans are sharing many, if any, details right now. Oh, there's been talk of showing different looks on the defensive line and being consistent in coverages.
But that's about as much as Pees is willing to share.
"I'd like to be more little more precise, but I really don't want to talk about scheme particularly and what we're doing," Pees said Wednesday when asked about coverage consistency.
The Titans made a change from Mike Mularkey to first-timer Mike Vrabel as head coach in January mostly to get more production from an offense led by young quarterback Marcus Mariota. Even though the Titans were the AFC's best against the run and allowed a league-fewest five touchdowns rushing and tied for fifth in sacks, they still have plenty of room for improvement on defense.
Maybe because the Titans were so good against the run, they faced more passes than any other defense in the NFL. They also gave up the most first downs through the air last season. The Titans ranked 25th defending the pass, giving up 239.3 yards per game, and 17th in points allowed. Despite Byard intercepting eight passes, Tennessee finished with 12 interceptions overall 鈥?tied for 18th in the league.
With Pees last season, Baltimore ranked 12th in yards allowed per game. The Ravens led the NFL with 22 interceptions and also tied for 10th against the pass giving up 213.8 yards per game.
Pees Yasmany Tomas Jersey , 68, has spent the last 14 of his 45 years as a coach in the NFL. But he hasn't talked with LeBeau, someone he's always admired and wanted to have a relationship with as a coach. The new Titans coordinator has been busy learning his new players and installing his defensive schemes with a little more than third installed as of Wednesday.
Outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, now on his fifth head-coach with this franchise, said the defense remains primarily a 3-4 base. Each coach uses different language to describe plays, and Morgan said learning that is the biggest challenge.
"Once we get across that barrier and kind of on the same communication lines, I think we'll be fine," Morgan said. "It's a different scheme from what LeBeau ran here, but you know it's football at the end of the day. So you've just got to get the concepts, get the philosophy and understand what we're trying to accomplish on the field."
Byard echoed Morgan's comments.
"We're not creating a new Cover 2 or Cover 3 or anything like that," Byard said. "It's just we're trying to execute at a high level man. DP just brought a great defense, and I think we're trying to execute it at a high level."
Titans drafted linebackers Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry , additions linebacker Brian Orakpo welcomes. Pees has a reputation for being creative in trying to free up pass rushers to get to the quarterback, and the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker said they've already seen some of that.
"Guys getting freed up, guys getting one-on-ones," Orakpo said. "You see me and Morgan flip-flopping that you're normally not used to seeing. Just trying to get advantages across the board. We're just going to keep taking it day by day and see what happens."
After all, the Titans' season doesn't start until Sept. 9 in Miami.
Notes: Vrabel said he told the Titans on Wednesday morning that the team and controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk will support players on making a decision on the national anthem when the time comes. Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker said that's not a decision that has to be made until September.
