Though Bengals rookie wide receiver Mohamed Sanu received most of the pre-Training Camp love between the two rookies, fifth-round draft pick Marvin Jones is making his own presence felt. Along with being a candidate as a return specialist, Jones' is getting his share of practice time with the offense. It's helped.

As Geoff Hobson with Bengals.com points out, Jones hasn't had the best performances with the "go" route until he "made a minor adjustment."

"In college, I was used to chopping my feet and jumping over people," he said. "After I clear the defender you have to keep running full speed instead of turning your shoulder thinking the quarterback is going to drop it on your outside shoulder. He's trying to score. He's throwing it all out there. Just the ability to keep running through the catch. It's a minor adjustment."

Hobson calls Jones an "odds-on favorite" to make the 53-man roster for his speed.
