Long shots looking to make most of chance with Jaguars |
Of the 90 players who started training camp with the Jaguars last month, 31 were rookies, including 23 who were undrafted.A few, like running back Lonnie Pryor and tight end Ryan Otten, were priority signings for the Jaguars hours after the draft concluded in April.But the road to a roster spot for many of the other undrafted rookies — particularly safety Ray Polk, receiver Jamal Miles and linebackers Michael Zimmer and Maalik Bomar — will be more difficult. Heading into Friday’s preseason opener against Miami, all four find themselves at the bottom of the depth chart.

Jaguars Notebook: Pass rush perks up with 5 sacks during scrimmage |

The Jaguars were dead last in sacks in the NFL last season, but the team showed some impressive pass rushes in Saturday night’s scrimmage at EverBank Field.The defense registered five sacks. Quarterbacks were in non-contact jerseys, so plays were blown dead before the tackle was made.“You felt the rush,” Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. “I thought there was some good pressure by the defense, and you see flashes of some of the technique we’re teaching.”
