Here are a few takeaways from today’s ninth practice of spring training:
> Wideout Devan Stubblefield is not yet fully recovered from last year’s major knee surgery, but in route drills he appears speedy. He also is making sure-handed catches.
> We’ve noted the Warriors are deep at the safety positions. Today, second-year freshman Dany Mulanga was the No. 1 free safety. He nearly intercepted a pass in team drills.
> With the shortage on the offensive line, Sione Kauhi is getting a look there. He appears to get good leverage.
> The offense had one of its best scrimmage-like drills today. Quarterbacks Max Wittek, Ikaika Woolsey and Beau Reilly each led scoring drives. Tight ends Dakota Torres and Tui Unga also caught scoring passes. Unga is a ferocious blocker who has worked on his routes this spring. The goal this summer is to hone his pass-catching.
> One of the spring’s biggest surprises, nose tackle Penitito Faalologo, also is a personal protector on punts.
