Jaguars Training Camp Round Up


Let's take a spin around the internet to see what others are saying about the Jacksonville Jaguars training camp.


QB Blaine Gabbert making smooth transition to NFL, impressing Jaguars in training camp - The Washington Post
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Blaine Gabbert’s first week of training camp has included impressive throws, nifty runs and deft decisions, making him look more like a regular than a rookie. It’s exactly what the Jacksonville Jaguars expected when they selected the former Missouri quarterback 10th overall in April’s NFL draft.

After injuries, Jaguars receiver Jarett Dillard determined to make up for lost time |
Wide receiver Jarett Dillard is a smart, driven player who fits the profile of the kind of player the Jaguars are trying to build their team around. He graduated first in his class in high school in San Antonio, was a member of the National Honor Society and a class officer and has his degree in political science from Rice University, which is known more for academics than football.

Military recruits, other service members spotlighted at Jaguars practice session |

When Air Force recruit Roderick Fisher swore his oath to protect the nation at a Jacksonville Jaguars salute to the military Tuesday, he hoped to inspire others. "It gives everybody a chance to see what we are doing," the 22-year-old said after leaving the practice field where he and about three dozen Air Force, Marine Corps and Army recruits took the oath as players began warm-ups in the background and fans filled bleachers.

When it comes to the Jaguars’ defense, Jack Del Rio says he knows the expectations are for dramatic improvement and immediate results, and he said that’s fine with him. His expectations are the same.


Have the Jaguars fixed their secondary? | Jaguars Blog
The Jaguars’ secondary in 2010 was simply abysmal.  They allowed the fifth-most passing yards per game (250.3) and the fifth-highest completion percentage (65%) in the NFL, and were dead last in passing yards per attempt (7.92).  Pro Football Focus rated Don Carey as the league’s worst safety despite the fact that he only started ten games and played only 671 snaps (for comparison, Rashean Mathis started every game and played a total of 987 snaps in 2010). 


A No. 2, Gabbert will get first-team time - AFC South Blog - ESPN
In Minnesota, Christian Ponder's talked of his respect for Donovan McNabb but his desire to start. The Jaguars have a plan in place for rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Jake Locker's echoed the same sentiment with regard to Matt Hasselbeck in Tennessee. Blaine Gabbert's on a different road. He’s a competitor, he wants opportunity, but he identified himself more than once on Tuesday after the Jaguars' morning practice as a No. 2 quarterback.
