Mike Mularkey says Eugene Monroe 'still has another level he can take it to'

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Despite his very impressive play against the likes of Julius Peppers and Jared Allen, Eugene Monroe can still improve his game, according to Mike Mularkey.

In a season that has certainly been a rough one for the Jaguars so far, one of the bright spots for the team has been the emergence of left tackle Eugene Monroe. After a rough start to his career and inconsistency in the years that followed, Monroe has proven to be one of the best players on the team in 2012, completing shutting down some of the league's best pass rushers like Julius Peppers and Jared Allen.

"It is impressive, you have to admit," Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told the media during his Wednesday press conference. "You look at the numbers after the game. You're always looking at the sacks and the pressures, it's really in the run game how many tackles are they involved in and assists and all those things. That's important to him too. Not just trying to keep them off the quarterback. He's taking the ‘don't let your guy make a play' to another level, so it's good to have him over there."

Yet, despite his impressive play against some of the NFL's elite, Mularkey thinks Monroe may still not have reached his peak. "I think he still has another level he can take it to," Mularkey said.

Through five games, Monroe has allowed one sack and two quarterback pressures. The rest of the line, however, is a different story.
