Competition is the Theme of Jaguars Camp
With less than two weeks until the start of training camp, JagNation will get you all prepared for Jaguars football as we will preview each of the positional battles and make expert predictions so you will know who and what to watch during camp.
Here are a few of the key camp battles that we will be focusing particular interest on:
- Offensive line- the tackle positions are likely set with now second-year pros Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton manning those spots, but what about the interior of the line. The Jaguars didn't trade for Justin Smiley for him to be a backup. Does Brad Meester or Vince Manuwai have any gas left in the tank? Will Uche Nwaneri continue to be the proverbial "Jack of all trades, master of none?"
- Wide receiver- It's Mike Sims-Walker and everyone else, right? Or is it? We will break down whether Mike Thomas can be more than a slot guy and if this camp will be Troy WIlliamson's swan song.
- Defensive line- It would appear as if Terrance Knighton and Tyson Alualu are the starters in the middle, but what about Atiyyah Ellison? Derrick Harvey is entering Year Three and there won't be anymore excuses if he gets beaten out by the team's younger pass rushers. Will Aaron Kampman be ready to go from Day One?
- Safety- Who will earn a starting job on the back end? Reggie Nelson is no longer guaranteed a job based on draft status. Will Sean Considine serve as anything more than a solid special teams guy? How about Gerald Alexander- will he live up to all his athleticism and potential? How will Courtney Greene and Anthony Smith respond as their NFL careers are hanging by a thread?
JagNation will go into extreme detail about every single position and handicap the competition. Bookmark JagNation on your computer to check out the best in unfiltered Jaguars information.
