Simi Fehoko excelling at camp?

How has Simi Fehoko looked in training camp so far? When I see his movement, it reminds me of Miles Austin. He has the speed and catches the ball well. I really hope to see him step up with James Washington out of the game. Is my comparison accurate or is the coaching staff not as interested in it as I am? — ALEX BROVERMAN / STATEN ISLAND, New York

Patrick: I really like what I see from Fehoko a lot: coming into camp as one of the less heralded young receivers who has taken advantage of most of the opportunities that come his way. Yes, there’s rookie third-round pick Jalen Tolbert to contend with, as well as other talented upstarts — TJ Vasher, Dennis Houston, KaVontae Turpin, for example — but it’s now become customary for Fehoko to make at least one telling catch every day. . He belongs in the WR conversation and, in my opinion, he has now surpassed one or two others whose name is not CeeDee Lamb.

Steal: I can see that comparison from the point of view that Miles Austin had great size and speed, great natural ability. Fehoko does too. And like Austin, he was primarily a wide receiver when he came into the league. Austin completed his game over time and that’s what Fehoko will be looking to do. I thought Thursday was arguably his best practice yet, at least in terms of splash plays. He soundly beat Trevon Diggs for a touchdown in one-on-one (I’m sure that drill favors receivers because there’s no pressure on quarterbacks) and would have had a touchdown in teamwork if not for a tip deflection in the last second by Jourdan Lewis. .
