Nolan Carroll II flashing skills
Chip Kelly bristled when it was suggested Carroll II was an under-the-radar signing.
Kelly said Wednesday Carroll (6-1, 205) would push Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher for playing time and contribute on special teams as a gunner.
"We didn't think it was an under-the-radar signing," Kelly said. "Obviously I don't write the articles. And thank goodness we didn't read them because he didn't feel that way to us. We had him targeted very early as a guy we wanted to bring into this organization. I think he's got the requisite length that we're looking forward at the corner spot. Especially as an outside corner. He's an outstanding special teams player.
"I've been really impressed with Nolan in the short time that we've had him here. I think he's stuck out. and I know some of you guys are excited he's stuck out."
