Thurmond, who is competing for a starting safety spot, continues to draw praise from head coach Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Walt's done a really nice job," Kelly said. "He's probably been our most productive guy in the secondary in terms of pass breakups and strips and things like that. He always seems to be around the ball, so he seems like he's fitting in there right now. But again, we still don't have pads on, we're still evaluating guys with helmets and shorts and T-shirts."
