  Titans rookie linebacker Rashaan Evans has gotten an up-close view of how Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel works on the practice field.”It’s intense I would say that Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey ,” Evans said Saturday after a rookie minicamp session. ”But I think that’s the good part about playing linebacker for Vrabel. He’s very specific about things that he wants, and I feel that’s what makes great linebackers. And once again, I’m just honored to be able to be coached by him and looking forward to continue to be coached by him.”
The Titans brought their four-man draft class along with 22 undrafted rookies and 21 players here on a tryout basis to Nashville on Thursday for minicamp that wraps up Sunday. Only the four draft picks spoke to reporters Saturday.
Vrabel spent part of the individual period working with the linebackers, a position he played 14 years in the NFL before going into coaching. The first-year Titans coach has said he plans to spend time with linebackers, but he had a specific reason for being with the group. Vrabel wanted to show the linebackers a specific coverage being installed.
”But I try to get around to all the groups,” Vrabel said. ”I try to see what everybody’s doing, just like I try to get in the meeting rooms and see what’s going on and help coach this team and help our assistant coaches reach their guys.”
Evans is the Titans’ top draft pick this year at No. 22 overall out of Alabama , a player Tennessee traded up three spots to grab. The smallest draft class in franchise history also includes outside linebacker Harold Landry taken at No. 41 overall in the second round, fifth-round pick defensive back Dane Cruikshank and quarterback Luke Falk taken in the sixth round.
When the rookies arrived, the Titans handed them a playbook and an iPad with meetings Thursday night before hitting the field Friday. Vrabel wants to see which players can execute what they’ve learned without making the same mistake twice. For some rookies, the playbook is a lot to take in.
”The playbook is very big,” said Cruikshank who played at Arizona. ”That’s not a lie. The playbook is very big, so it’s been an adjustment. But I’m looking forward to it. I love football. This is what I do. This is my profession, and I’m putting everything into it.”
Falk is among the players being asked to do something very different from college at Washington State. The Titans are putting him under center taking snaps after playing predominantly shotgun at Washington State where the former walk-on set school and Pc-12 Conference career records including 14,486 yards passing and 119 touchdown passes.
Asked how many snaps he took under center in college, Falk said 35.
”It’s just a different system,” Falk said. ”I think with repetition and perfect repetition and keep pounding at it every day, eventually I’m going to get it.”
Landry Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , the Boston College linebacker who had been predicted to be drafted in the first round, said the small rookie class has bonded quickly. He’s looking forward to Monday when the rookies can start working with the veterans in the team’s offseason program.
”I’m here happy to get coached by Coach Vrabel, Coach (Shane) Bowen,” Landry said.
WHAT’S IN A NAME
When former Titans quarterback Vince Young announced Landry as Tennessee’s second round pick at the draft, Young misspoke and called him ”Honor” Landry. Asked about that again, Landry said he definitely received a bunch of texts calling him ”Honor.” ”I’m here, you know it all worked out, so it is what it is,” Landry said. ”It was a fun moment. But I’m here. It’s all good.”

HOUSTON — It required two minutes and 23 seconds for all the Rockets had worked for to be torn asunder, for their unrelenting charge to the best record in the Western Conference to be rendered moot, and the home-court advantage that accompanied that accomplishment to be blithely negated through the handiwork of Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.
It took that long for Golden State to churn out a 12-2 run in the third quarter that yielded a double-digit lead and a stranglehold on Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday night at Toyota Center.
The Rockets had labored down the stretch of the regular season to bypass the Warriors in the standings and guarantee that this anticipated series would open in Houston. In one two-plus-minute flash, the Warriors snuffed the Rockets and left them reeling.
In the aftermath of their 119-106 victory, the Warriors were left basking in a triumph that included rare circumstances. It marked the first time since their opening-round series with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014 that the Warriors began a postseason series on the road, and, like that April 19 game at Staples Center, they met the challenge in road environs.
Thompson remembered that game as well as the outcome of the subsequent contests in that series. So Tyson Barrie Jersey , while the Warriors welcomed the lauding, they were hasty to issue words of caution while attention shifted to Game 2, which will tip off on Wednesday night back at Toyota Center.
“It was a great win, but this series is far from over,” said Thompson, who scored 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting. “I’ve been in this same situation, me and Draymond, before. We came out and won a tough game, and they (the Clippers) came back and beat us (138-98) in Game 2.
“So, it’s natural to relax, but we’re not going to relax. We’re still not where we want to be, and we’ve got a long way to go.”
Modesty aside, the Warriors don’t have nearly as far to go as the Rockets, who not only surrendered home court, they allowed Golden State to dictate the terms of the series opener.
Houston breezed through the opening two rounds of the playoffs in part by displaying historically judicious ball security, posting a turnover rate (9.8 per 100 possessions) that ranked as second-best in playoff history over the 41 years that turnovers have been an official statistic.
In Game 1, the Rockets committed 16 turnovers and helped fuel the Warriors’ devastating transition offense. Golden State entered the series averaging 17.6 points per game in transition this postseason, far and away the best mark in the NBA. The Warriors scored 18 fast-break points in the opener Brock McGinn Jersey Kids , penalizing the Rockets’ surprising and sudden carelessness with the ball.
“If you miss shots or if you turn the basketball over, they’re out,” said Rockets guard James Harden, who paired a game-high 41 points with seven assists but also posted four turnovers. “They’re getting dunks, they’re getting 3s. I’m not sure how many transition points they had, but it was too many. That’s what they thrive on. So, we’ve got to do a better job of not turning the basketball over, taking better shots, and getting back (defensively) and matching up.”
The Warriors recorded a 60.6 effective field-goal percentage in the series opener, which was par for the course even against the Rockets’ exceptional defense. Golden State produced a 61.8 effective field-goal percentage during the team’s three regular-season meetings, the highest such mark against Houston by any opponent. However, it wasn’t that the Warriors shot efficiently but rather the number of wide-open looks they generated by ball movement.
The Rockets rightfully claimed some responsibility, with a handful of blown defensive assignments resulting in uncontested shots for Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Nick Young. Combined, that trio shot 10 for 25 from behind the arc, with Thompson, in particular Blake Comeau Jersey , burning the Rockets with open 3s after Houston was caught scrambling to defend multiple actions.
“There’s too many times we had just mental lapses,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We either didn’t switch properly or we didn’t switch hard enough.”
Houston could point to a myriad of other factors contributing to its demise, namely key role players P.J. Tucker, Gerald Green, and Luc Mbah a Moute combining for seven points — two fewer than Young scored in 15 minutes off the Warriors bench — on 2-of-14 shooting. But what resonated were the miscues on both ends, fissures it can mend in advance of Game 2.
The objective is clearer for the Warriors: avoid the Game 2 letdown that undermined their postseason hopes four years ago.
“Nothing really changes,” said Durant, who scored a team-high 37 points. “We know it’s a long series, a seven-game series, so we know they’re going to come out with a lot of energy next game, try to even this thing up. So, we’ve just got to stay focused and be patient out there, and continue to keep playing hard.”
