Bright had an exceptional night at center, only one bad snap and he was more than an adequate blocker. He moved a lot of guys. I like what I was at center,
Then he moved to guard where he got beat a couple times and did not seem as dominating as he did at center.
He truly is strong, very strong, he’s more agile than I thought but he did get shucked off balance a couple times. He did not pull but the one time so it’s a little had to see how nimble he is. Everything was basic straight forward blocking, I want to see more.
