Jacksonville Jaguars Q&A: Will Arrelious Benn or Bryan Walters make the team?

Will Arrelious Benn make the team over Bryan Walters? Is Jason Myers in danger of losing his job? Are you more excited about the defense or more concerned with the offensive line?

Q: You said you like Arrelious Benn over Bryan Walters to be the team's fifth receiver. Do you honestly think there's a chance that Benn makes the team over Walters considering his injury history and Walters' sweet, sweet hands?

A: Bryan Walters isn't a better receiver than Arrelious Benn. That's not why he made the team last year. He made it because Benn is susceptible to injury and was out for the year yet again. There's no question Benn is the better talent with more versatility and who fits better in this offense. If Benn is healthy, he's the easy choice to make the team.

Q: After a shakey scrimmage is Jason Myers in real danger of losing his job?

A: The more things change, the more things stay the same. No, Myers is not in real danger of losing his job.

Q: What are Thurston Armbrister's chance of making the team? I know he didn't do well last season filling in as an undrafted rookie after having a decent training camp and preseason but I haven't heard much about him at all this offseason.

A: The linebacking corps is pretty stacked with Myles Jack, Paul Posluszny, Telvin Smith, and Jordan Tripp. For Armbrister to make the team, he'd have to beat out Hayes Pullard or the team would have to keep six true linebackers, which I don't see happening with how many of these players can play both middle and weakside. I don't think Armbrister makes the 53-man roster and neither does Alfie.

Q: With Josh Wells and Kelvin Beachum injured, plus Luke Joeckel moved to guard, who will start preseason at left tackle? Also, who is our backup center with Luke Bowanko out?

A: If Joeckel isn't playing left tackle, then it's *shuffles papers nervously* uh, Jeff Linkenbach? That's who the Jaguars have on their depth chart. The backup center is Tyler Shatley and that'll probably carry over into the regular season.

Q: Which is higher going into the first preseason game? Your excitement over the defensive front's potential or your concern over the offensive line's performance and depth?

A: The defense. Definitely the defense.

Q: Real talk: If (hopefully when) Blake Bortles one day makes it to the Hall of Fame, does his bust have a baseball cap too, or is his baldness immortalized?

A: I just hope he has a dip in.
