Jaguars news roundup 7/4

Jacksonville Jaguars news around the internet you may have missed.


Jacksonville Jaguars: “Offensive Weapon” Denard Robinson Could Be Special - Yahoo! Sports
Former University of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is a guy who appreciates the opportunity at hand. In every interview since being drafted, Robinson is glowing. He has that "kid in a candy store" demeanor while joking around with interviewers. You seldom find him not smiling. He really seems like a guy who is soaking in this rare opportunity that he has - to play America's most popular sport at the highest level.

Jaguars NFL Draft 2013: Offseason Update
The reviews came quickly, and generally speaking, they came in positive fashion. Some even raved. Nationwide, analysts pretty much loved the Jaguars’ 2013 NFL Draft. What that means in the coming months and seasons is anyone’s guess. The future is not ours to see – never has been – and in the NFL, even the raved-reviewed draft classes must prove themselves on the field. For the Jaguars, the next stage of that process begins on July 26, when the team is scheduled to open training camp at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields adjacent to EverBank Field in downtown Jacksonville. That’s the first time the ’13 draft class will put on pads in the NFL.

Denver Broncos 2013 Opponents: Jacksonville Jaguars - Mile High Report
The Jacksonville Jaguars, while not holding the status of "rival" in the minds of most Broncos fans, are undoubtedly a team that is often thought of as "having the Broncos' number" in recent years -- having won four of the last five meetings between the two teams. The Jaguars are, perhaps, most painfully remembered for their 30-27 upset of the heavily favored Broncos during the playoffs following the 1996 season -- which, incidentally, was Jacksonville's second season in existence. A footnote to that story is the fact that the following year, Denver trounced the Jaguars in the playoffs, 42-7, on their way to their first Super Bowl victory.

O-Zone: Scouting overseas
I have huge respect for Posluszny and think he could be the best player on the Jaguars’ defense this season. If I was starting a team, I’d feel really comfortable with Posluszny as my middle linebacker. But I interpreted the question as asking what player on the Jaguars’ defense could eventually be a player for whom other teams would have to game plan – i.e., who would be a superstar, defense-defining player and eventually define a great defense. I don’t know that Posluszny is necessarily at quite that level, but at this very early stage it appears Cyprien could have a chance to be.
