Kyle Juszczyk works out for Jaguars, per report

USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars will host Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk for a private workout, according to a report by Tony Pauline. The Jaguars recently lost Greg Jones in free agency to the Houston Texans and could be looking for a replacement, despite many believing that the fullback position is being phased out of the modern NFL.


Even so, the 6'1" 248 pound Juszczyk seems to fit the new mold of what teams are looking for in a fullback, in that he can also fill that role of an H-Back, which is like a tight end/fullback hybrid similar to that of James Casey who was recently picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Juszczyk has earned the "football player" label by many draft analysts because he's a big athlete that can fit in multiple roles. He ran a 4.71 and 4.72 at his pro day and impressed many people at the 2013 Senior Bowl.

Danny Kelly broke down some of the H-Back's in the 2013 NFL Draft and included Juszczyk as one of the most intriguing players, especially for a team running some read option and pistol concepts.

Juszczyk is expected to go somewhere in the fourth to sixth round of the NFL Draft.
