Rodriguez’s comfort level is growing

Posted by Larry Mayer on July 30, 2012 – 2:39 pm

Bears rookie tight end Evan Rodriguez is much more comfortable on the practice field in training camp than he was during the offseason program, and it’s beginning to show.

“Minicamp was my first time being out there with the vets, so I really didn’t know what to expect and that really prepared me well for camp,” said the fourth-round pick from Temple.

Working with the No. 2 offense, Rodriguez made an impact over the weekend, reaching high to snare a Jason Campbell pass deep down the middle Saturday night and catching a perfectly thrown touchdown pass that Campbell dropped over linebacker J.T. Thomas Sunday.

The reception Saturday night came after Rodriguez had allowed a short pass to squirt through his hands.

“Every time you catch the ball your confidence goes up,” said Rodriguez, who feels that he has improved his fundamentals, footwork and route running. “Every time you drop the ball you have to go back to square one like, ‘why did I drop the ball,’ and focus in.”

In three seasons at Temple, Rodriguez caught 69 passes for 871 yards and seven touchdowns in 37 career games. The 6-2, 244-pounder had 35 receptions for 479 yards and two TDs last year as a senior.
