Florida sophomore tailback Adarius Lemons made the biggest play of the scrimmage, sprinting 89 yards for a touchdown.
Mullen praised him for that, but he also said Lemons needs to do a better job in the other phases of his game — catching, blocking, carrying out assignments — or he won’t get that many opportunities in the fall.
“He’s an explosive player, but guys have got to learn is it’s about every play,” Mullen said. “If you’re an explosive playmaker like that, but you can’t execute on a regular play, on an every-play basis, it’s hard to get you in the game.
“As a younger back, that’s what you’ve got to learn. To become a great football player, it’s what you do when the ball’s not in your hand as a running back that’s even more important. I think he’s learning and growing in that aspect of things.”
