New Jaguar Scouting Report-Tyron Brackenridge

The Jaguars claimed former Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Tyron Brackenridge off waivers this week. To make room for him, they waived wide receiver D'Juan Woods. JagNation asked the experts to chime in on what player the Jaguars are receiving.

Measureables:

Tyron Brackenridge is hardly an imposing figure, as he stands just 5'11", 189 lbs. Brackenridge will turn 25 prior to the start of training camp and has accrued two seasons since graduating from Washington State University.

Statistics:


Brackenridge has played in 14 games and started one as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2007-2008. In that time, the former Chief registered 30 tackles and two forced fumbles, one of which he returned 50 yards for a touchdown.

Expert analysis by Warpaint Illustrated's C.E. Wendler:

He's a quick guy, but not very fast (ran a 4.69). Was burned some. Herm Edwards cut him midseason after he got toasted for a touchdown. He's a tough little guy, he'll come up and make a tackle. He also tore a hole in his biceps, in 2007, and played with it all year instead of having surgery, so definitely a tough guy like I said. He's a decent nickel player but not really suited to play outside corner.

What does this mean for the Jaguars:

Brackenridge is an experienced player who should compete for the nickel job with both Brian Witherspoon and Scott Starks. His best shot at making the team will likely be with a special teams contribution.
