The Jacksonville Jaguars held their Day 1 practices for offseason training activities on Tuesday. Football is back (sort of!) and you bet we’re going to over-analyze every bit of information coming out of practice.
Below is your one-stop shop for all the tweets, pictures, videos, and more you may have missed.
Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye absent
The Jaguars’ starting cornerbacks were absent from the voluntary practices and although they’ve communicated with head coach Doug Marrone that they wouldn’t be there, people still cared.
Ramsey and Bouye only two missing from OTA’s. Interesting. Voluntary. Big story in May because it’s May. No reason given for absence. Outside of that, business as usual as #Jaguars get going in OTA’s. #ASJax— Brent Martineau (@BrentASJax) May 22, 2018
Blake Bortles looked sharp
It’s passing drills where he’s not seeing a live pass rush, but Bortles still had some good passes in his first day of offseason practice.
It’s a little tough to see but this was Bortles’ best pass in today’s OTA: Nice over the shoulder pass and catch by Keenan Cole with a defender draped on him. pic.twitter.com/Z8W3YzSp3A— Sports4Jax (@Sports4Jax) May 22, 2018
Looked like Blake Bortles threw the ball well today for the most part. Keelan Cole made several impressive catches. He continues to ascend every time he's on the field. #Jaguars— Phillip Heilman (@phillip_heilman) May 22, 2018
#Jaguars OTAs: My Day 1 Thumbs Up: Bortles, Chark, Cole, Telvin, Taven, Calais, Fournette, Church, Moncrief, Grant and Logan Cooke.— Hays Carlyon (@HaysCarlyon) May 22, 2018
Keelan Cole stole the show
Again, a meaningless practice as the defense isn’t fully on the field, but this is an impressive catch from second-year receiver Keelan Cole.
Doug Marrone is still very handsome
This is the most important takeaway from Day 1.
