Doug Marrone: Jacksonville Jaguars rookies doing a “nice job” so far -
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone addressed the media on Monday to discuss several topics after completing the first session of the third week of organized team activities (OTAs). Here are five quotes that stood out from the press conference.

Jarrod Wilson making the most of Barry Church missing practices -
The Jacksonville Jaguars are now in their third week of organized team activities (OTAs) and there are still a few players sitting out who’ve missed essentially the entire three weeks of field work. One of those players who has been out is veteran free agent signing Barry Church, who’s slated to be the replacement to Johnathan Cyprien at safety. With Church out however, it’s allowed second-year safety Jarrod Wilson to get a lot of reps in practice and show the coaching staff what he’s capable of.

Yannick Ngakoue using OTAs to refine pass skills -
As rookie in 2016, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue set a franchise rookie record with eight sacks. Now entering his second NFL season, Ngakoue isn’t concerned about a sophomore slump. “Just more excited because I’m familiar with the pace of the game, things of that nature,” said Ngakoue. I’m not coming into my second year not knowing what I’m doing. It’s like I’m feeling more comfortable. I already got my feet wet last year. It’s just rehearsal.”
