Anything jump out at you when looking at the scrimmage stats?

...pass catching TEs make happy...

From al.com:

Greg McElroy: 22-of-33 (67%) for 214 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs

Star Jackson: 6-of-16 for 25 yards, 1 INT

Terry Grant: 18 rushes for 63 yards

Julio Jones: 5 receptions for 56 yards and 1 TD

Rolando McClain: 10 tackles, 2 INTs, 2 sacks

Tyrone King: 7 tackles, 2 INTs

Colin Peek: 7 receptions, 33 yards, 2 TDs

McElroy's numbers are pretty good considering his dreadful showings in last year's scrimmages, and Saban was....what exactly? (emphasis mine)

"I was really sort of not at all disappointed with where we are. It actually went a little better than anticipated. We were further along than I thought we would be."

Perhaps a ludic smile crossed his face during practice.  Anyway, I highlighted Peek's numbers because he's been a tantalizing x-factor ever since he transferred.  He caught 25 passes for 248 yards and a TD at Ga. Tech, and with both Nick Walker and Travis McCall graduated and the need for both experience and all around talent to step up at TE, it's good to see he has already fit into the passing game.  Now we just have to figure out who will fill McCall's lead blocking shoes....
