JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – With Sunday’s scrimmage now finish, the Jaguars transform their attention to the upcoming phase of camp: the preseason online games.
Saturday when the Browns appear to city, we’ll see the Jaguars from another workforce for the initial time in this new era. Here’s what I’ve seen so far.
Let’s start out with Trevor Lawrence. He is as very good as anticipated so far. That does not suggest we ought to be fitting him for a gold jacket just nonetheless, but there has been practically nothing to show that he isn’t heading to be a very very good quarterback really quickly. During the scrimmage, Lawrence threw a few of touchdowns in situational 11-on-11 do the job.
One particular capped a 99-property travel. The other came in the two-minute drill. Rookies executing perfectly in situational drills is a really superior signal, especially if it carries above to the preseason games, and then to the common year. Keep an eye on Lawrence for the duration of Saturday’s match on third down, in the pink zone, and at the end of the 50 percent.
I have been astonished how fingers-on the to start with-time NFL head mentor has been in procedures. He has taken his mantra to “Own it” to a new amount. He’s out there coaching fundamentals all through drills. He’s pulling players aside to speak to them far more than most NFL head coaches I’ve included. He has proven the kind of maniacal emphasis that you see in coaches like Monthly bill Belichick and Jon Gruden. That is not the only way to earn, of class, but Meyer has it.
Meyer has also carried out some coaching techniques he employed in university, like “winner/loser day” to market competitors. It appears to be to have been been given effectively by the team. I’m not certain if a roster whole of crusty veterans would have the identical response, but you can only coach the players you have, and Meyer is accomplishing it very well. Then yet again, there has not been a lot adversity for him to get over. Let’s see what comes about as the games start and the cuts technique. He’s under no circumstances had to slice a roster, and this figures to be a complicated time for Meyer, as it is for most coaches.
As for Tim Tebow, he has not seemed like a fish out of drinking water, but I have not been blown away. He’s a person hoping to make the roster correct now. It is a excellent story and if his identify wasn’t Tim Tebow you in all probability wouldn’t assume a great deal of the fifth limited end on a roster — or no matter what he is. But it is Tebow. I need to have to see more.
Tebow’s catches haven’t scored large on the splendor scale, but he’s caught most of the passes thrown to him. He hasn’t appeared quite sudden in his route jogging and he’ll probable have to rely a lot more on his really feel for the video game and his toughness to create space as a receiver. I’m curious to see if Meyer is going to use Tebow in any non-conventional ways during the preseason. Will he line him up in the wildcat on a small-yardage predicament? Will he let Tebow throw a move or use him on some gadget plays? It’s worthy of keeping an eye on all through the preseason game titles.
The Jaguars’ roster
I feel there are even now some holes on the roster. The tight end home can be far better. I imagine the offensive line is still a do the job in progress and we really do not know how all of the parts will match alongside one another on offense, but so much, it appears to be like a aggressive NFL staff out there.
The wildcard position is at cornerback. There have been studies that the Jaguars are shopping second-year corner C.J. Henderson. Tyson Campbell has appeared good so far in his rookie training camp and the Jaguars be expecting Shaquill Griffin to be their greatest cornerback following signing him from Seattle in free of charge company. Those two, alongside with Sidney Jones and Tre Herndon, seem to be the best four corners if Henderson is not in the combine. It’s a posture team that could wind up looking quite unique than it appeared at the conclude of the disastrous 2020 time.
We’ll discover far more when they commence hitting guys in distinct jerseys on Saturday.
