Mike Brown, LaRoy Reynolds lead Jaguars in snaps vs. Dolphins

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Young undrafted players led the way for the Jaguars in their Friday night preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.

When the Jaguars took on the Miami Dolphins on Friday night, they did so without marquee players like Maurice Jones-Drew, Cecil Shorts III and Justin Blackmon. The absence of stars gave opportunities for young players to prove that they are worthy of spots on the roster.

Leading the way for the offense was wide receiver Mike Brown, who managed to do so without seeing the field on special teams. An undrafted free agent signed after the 2012 NFL Draft, Brown had a solid preseason as rookie, but spent the majority of the season on the practice squad.

Now in his second season, Brown earned the start at receiver on Friday night and finished the game with three receptions for 25 yards on five targets.

Defensively, undrafted rookie LaRoy Reynolds led the defense and the entire team with 48 total snaps.

Due simply to the nature of the position, linebackers tallied plenty of snaps due to special teams, but defensive backs Chris Prosinski and Kevin Rutland both earned plenty of snaps as well.

A fifth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Brandon Marshall earned the second-most snaps and led the team in tackles with five.
