The Jacksonville Jaguars are through with their first week of training camp and a few things have consistently stood out the last few days — Blake Bortles looks good and in command of the offense, the offensive and defensive lines will once again be a major strength of this team, and first round pick Taven Bryan is confirmed good, folks.
You can read a Day 3 recap on our live blog here.
As Day 4 approaches, we’ll keep an eye on how Bortles continues to perform, how the rest of the offense develops, and how the defense (somehow) improves upon last year.
We’ll start learning the answers to these questions and more as the Jaguars take the field this morning. Follow along with everything Jaguars by checking out our live blog throughout the day.
12:56 PM: And with that, Day 4 winds to a close. Blake Bortles ends on a high note. Goodnight, everyone!

12:50 PM: I can’t believe I doubted this pick. Taven Bryan is going to be an absolute gift in keeping the veteran defensive linemen fresh for the playoffs.
DE Taven Bryan getting some reps at 5-tech with the first team. Had solid pressure on his first play and got stood up on his second.— Zach Goodall (@zach_goodall) July 30, 2018
12:34 PM: Rashad Greene doing everything he can to wrap up that sixth receiver position on the 53-man roster.
#Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has been a ball magnet over the past two practices. Three more catches in team drills so far today, on top of three on Saturday night.— Zach Goodall (@zach_goodall) July 30, 2018
Two from Bortles, one from Kessler today.
12:16 PM: Blake Bortles has his first “off” day of training camp.
First round of 11-on-11 today for #Jaguars:— Phillip Heilman (@phillip_heilman) July 30, 2018
Bortles: 3/6, INT, "sack." Bouye had a nice PBU on pass intended for Westbrook.
Kessler: 4/5 with two nice throws to Chark.
Lee: 2/3 with a nice throw to Crockett and two "sacks"
Spikes not included.
11:13 AM: Yannick Ngakoue, my God. This has been a fun, physical camp so far.
11:11 AM: Taven Bryan vs. Cam Robinson — the first round pick is more than holding his own in his first training camp.
11:08 AM: Cam Robinson in run drills.
10:52 AM: I could watch Taven Bryan practice all day.
If you squint hard enough, you can almost see Taven Bryan bringing down Saquon Barkley for a TFL. pic.twitter.com/YgMrUAA85t— Phillip Heilman (@phillip_heilman) July 30, 2018
10:46 AM: The silver lining is Marqise Lee and Donte Moncrief were always going to make this roster so this gives guys like Keelan Cole, Shane Wynn, or Jaydon Mickens more reps. Same with Tyler Patmon taking advantage of Jalen Ramsey’s absence.
#Jaguars WRs Donte Moncrief and Marqise Lee are in pads, but are working on the side of the field today. Head coach Doug Marrone labeled each as “day to day” in his press conference. Neither injury appears to be serious.— Zach Goodall (@zach_goodall) July 30, 2018
10:34 AM: Day 4 is beginning now!

9:22 AM: Jalen Ramsey could literally show up two hours to kickoff for Week 1 of the regular season and I’d be confident that Odell Beckham, Jr. isn’t getting more than two catches or 30 yards.
Marrone says he doesn't think Ramsey's absence will reach a point where he's behind schedule.— Phillip Heilman (@phillip_heilman) July 30, 2018
7:26 AM: Saturday night’s practice with pads under the lights was a lot of fun to follow along with. We’ve got our live blog here chock full of highlights, video, and analysis.
