Saturday Afternoon Camp Recap
First off, all credit for the observations quoted here goes to Tim at Jaguars Journal Tim produces professional grade reports on every aspect of training camp, and deserves far more publicity than he gets in the Jaguar fan community. I wouldn't claim to know him well, but you can't participate on the Jaguars.com Message Boards without coming across FBT.
On with the re-cap
Injuries: Paul Spicer seemed to have injured an ankle, he did not participate in any drills early in the PM session. Byron Leftwich had his ankle stepped on, however it did not cause any missed time. And of course, Matt Jones has a groin problem. FBT explains:
The Passing Game: As in the first session, the quarterbacks are rolling out. This practice included the play action and draw plays. An interesting observation is that:
Rookie WR John Broussard was used in some deep sideline passes, I've heard he's a fast one, so I'm cool with that.
Here's something that I think is a promising sign:
For you Dennis Northcutt fans, here's what FBT had to say:
The Tight Ends did a good job as well:
The best play of the night:
The Defense: This practice saw second year Defensive End James Wyche step up. Read this:
Cornerback Scott Starks made some nice plays against David Garrard. Scott and like ninety other people are competing for the nickel-back position, so I'd expect everyone to make the play when given the chance. 3rd Cornerback is the most open competition on the defense, in my opinion.
Thoughts: I like what I've seen so far. I'm very excited about the use of our Tight Ends, though I need to see what they can do when they're asked to block. Losing Kyle Brady as our big time blocker could hurt of Wiggins and Lewis can't block. I wish Jermaine Wiggins would change his last name to Clark, just so I could call them "Lewis and Clark.
