2016.03.16 15:25 NickSabanFanBoy Offseason Roster Overview 2016: Post Free Agency Frenzy/Pre 2016 Draft- What's Dave Caldwell's next move?
Notes: No question as to who the starter and back up are going to be headed into the 2016 season. Bortles showed growth and Henne was recently re-singed to a 2 year, 8 million dollar deal. No issues here!
As for the draft, if we draft a QB then he’s a camp arm at best. So either a 7th rounder or an UDFA we pick up later.
Notes: The most complicated group. With the release of Beadles and loss of Wisinski, the Jaguars are looking to possibly remodel their offensive line. Linder, Cann, and Bowanko have been rumored to start at center next season but nothing official has been said regarding those changes at center.
With the return of Linder and rookie Cann making strides, both guard positions looked secured. Until free agency, that is. With the addition of Bernadeau and with the arrival of free agent Kelvin Beachum the offensive line may have some competition going into the off-season. Beachum, who started at LT for 4 seasons with the Steelers, tore his ACL this past October but is expected to make a full recovery by the 2016 opener.
Emphasis should be put on the apparent competition now happening between Beachum and Joeckel for the starting LT spot, since this competition could be the first “domino” to fall in how our offensive line looks this offseason . As to what these moves may mean, there's no way of knowing for now.
The offensive line may be addressed in some form with a pick from the 2016 NFL Draft but, generally, rookies should not be relied upon too heavily. Additionally, with the center spot lacking a starter and Beachum joining the Jaguars, the entire offensive line might have complete overhauls headed into training camp. So who knows what’ll happen before training camp!
Notes: With Marcedes re-signed to a 3 year deal, it’s no question that both Marcedes and Thomas will be the starters headed into the 2016 season for tight ends. Thomas would of course be suited as a receiving tight end and Marcedes more so with blocking.
Harbor is good depth, while Koyack and Jacobs likely compete in camp for a spot on the depth chart.
I would not be surprised to see DC draft a TE in the later rounds, but I wouldn’t bet money on it either.
Notes: Another interesting group headed into the 2016 offseason. Yeldon, a rookie drafted in the 2nd round last year, proved to be a solid back for the Jaguars. Unfortunately, Yeldon could only do so much and showed that, when not playing, our depth at running back was lackluster. With the singing of Ivory in free agency from the Jets, Yeldon finally has a complement to his shifty, patient, running style.
Ivory provides power and explosiveness to our running game and also allows Yeldon to rest when necessary. Gray was singed late last season and Robinson still has issues with ball security. Grant, a rookie last season, spent a majority of his time on IR and is a question mark. Pierce, as of typing this wall of text, is a free agent. As to whether the Jaguars will have a committee or split carries for their backs, we’ll have to wait and see during camp.
The depth at this position is still somewhat “shaky” and there are some running backs in this upcoming draft class that the Jaguars may look into (and some that I have fallen in love with and would love to see in teal) drafting in the mid or later rounds.
Notes: Most improved (and hyped) group of players going into 2016. Not much needs to be said that already hasn’t been stated thousands of times before. DC stated recently that Hurns might see some time as a slot receiver. So that would mean our packages would include Robinson and Lee on the outside, and Hurns tearing it up in the slot. At the same time. Ugh, pinch me. Greene has been a solid rookie despite being placed on IR half the year.
Speaking of Greene, according to AP sports writer Mark Long “there are people in the Jaguars building who believe WR Rashad Greene will be better than Robinson and Hurns”. I watch a ton of college football and when the Jaguars drafted Greene in round 5 I screamed like a girl (not joking either). Bold prediction: Greene has a breakout year in 2016.
I will say this, though, while our starters are mostly (I’ll stress again, MOSTLY) set in stone I wouldn’t complain about at least one wide receiver drafted this April. Though, the value has to be good to warrant a draft pick. In Dave we trust.
Notes: The group that has caused the most anxiety among Jaguar fans and could very well be our biggest need headed into the offseason. Drafted with the 3rd overall pick last year, Fowler, by all reports, has been having an amazing recovery and has looked great when doing drills per GM David Caldwell. Unfortunately, that’s not enough to dispel uncertainty headed into next season. Smith has done okay and Davis is a solid rotational guy, though more needs to be done.
With the lack of success of edge/LEO pass rushing ends in free agency, our only options at this point are to wait and use a 1st or 2nd round pick on a defensive end, wait until after the 3rd week of preseason games and pick up a released defensive end elsewhere, or trade. Spending a draft pick on a defensive end or edge rusher is pretty much a certainty at this point given our need and how defensively talented this year’s draft is.
Notes: After signing Malik Jackson, the top free agent this year, to a 6 year deal our pass-rush and run defense has already improved. Sure, it sounds a bit like I’m flying off the handles but can you blame me? Malik paired with both Marks and Miller make a killer D line.
Q: But why is Malik starting over Marks and Miller?
A: Well, he's not exactly starting over one player necessarily (hence 1a/1b). His role is to provide pass rush or run defense on whatever defensive package we run. For instance, one down could be Fowler, Malik, Miller, Odrick and another look could be Fowler, Marks, Malik, Odrick.
Also, Malik is an extremely versatile player and can line up anywhere on the D line. This allows Miller and Marks, who is coming off IR for two seasons straight, needed rest. Odrick has also done a great job playing as our Elephant End and provided the Jaguars with great run support, as well as provided good pressure on the D line. Some depth at Elephant wouldn’t hurt, but it’s not necessarily a priority.
With how deep this draft class is on the defensive line, spending a draft pick on defensive tackle isn’t outside the realm of possibility.
Notes: For me, personally, this is the group that has me scratching my head the most as to what we should do in the offseason, if anything at all.
On one hand, Smith has been excellent for us and was probably our best player on defense last year, Posluszny is a veteran who understands the game well and provides leadership, and Skuta (when healthy) has played the Otto well from what I’ve seen.
On the other hand, as seen when any of these 3 players are out, depth needs to be addressed eventually. Additionally, Posluszny is a liability in pass coverage and age is another factor going against him. What’s more confusing is the fact that Skuta may be possibly playing LEO and, if that’s the case, then we need someone unique to play the Otto position.
The Otto is a position which isn’t exactly commonplace in the NFL to begin with, so whoever ends up playing Otto needs to understand the position and master it, as well as have the versatility to do many tasks on the field such as rush the passer, drop into coverage, and, most importantly, excel in run support. It’s been a popular notion that the Jaguars use the 5th overall pick on a Linebacker. I would tend to agree with this notion depending on how the top 4 plays out.
Notes: With Gipson almost certainly being our starting free safety, this position doesn’t need to be addressed heavily going into the offseason. Only question mark is how the Jaguars see players like Evans and Sample going into the future and what their roles are. Brown, while not too great as a starter last year, should provide solid depth.
Strong safety is somewhat similar to free safety in that some players (Evans and Sample again) still need to be defined as to what their roles are moving forwards. Although unlike free safety, strong safety is not as….talented. Sure, Cyprien may improve now that there’s more help around him and solidify his role as a starter……but something tells me there may be a bit of a shakeup at strong safety in training camp. We still don’t know what we have in Sample and Cyprien may improve with more help around him.
Now, another popular notion with the 5th overall pick in this year’s draft is to snag defensive back Jalen Ramsey out of Florida State. Some people may think this is an odd pick considering we have help at free safety thanks to Gipson, but Jalen Ramsey is an extremely gifted athlete who can play multiple positions in the secondary. STAR safety, nickel back, corner back, free safety, it doesn’t matter. He’s also amazing at disguising blitzes and causing chaos during blitzes, using speed, burst, vision, and his athleticism to affect the play.
Ramsey can do it all. Only problem is other teams ahead of us are aware of his skills as well. If he goes before 5, not the end of the word; if he’s there at 5, TAKE HIM.
Notes: With the addition of Amukamara (such a fun name to say!) in free agency on a 1 year deal, our corner back group is not too shabby. House played well for us last year despite a horrendous lack of pressure from the D line and Colvin plays best when put against a slot receiver but is also a good player for us overall. Gratz and McCray were below average last year and Marshall (despite some flubs) I believe deserves another shot.
As someone who is obsessed with college football and watched Marshall play for Auburn as a QB, I know Marshall is a class act as well as a tremendous athlete and will work hard and give us everything he’s got.
The 2016 draft class has an abundance of great corners so expect us to draft at least one corner for either depth purposes or to compete for possible starting reps.
Notes: Nortman, a free agent punter from Carolina, was singed in free agency this year to replace 3rd round pick Bryan Anger.LS: Carson Tinker
Jason Myers, who fans both hated and loved at many points last season, has a great leg for field goals but misses way too many extra points. Can he improve next year? Hopefully.
The two schools of thought are that we should either draft a kicker or sign a kicker before the season starts. I'm personally undecided on both options.
Notes: As far as I know, no complaints about Tinker as our Long Snapper.PR: Rashad Greene, Bryan Walters
Notes: For punt returns, Greene has been great and will only get better. My only suggestion for next year is to keep feeding Greene punt returns until he breaks every Jaguars record for the position.
The kick return is open until the coaching staff finds someone who’s right for the job. I don’t care if he’s a corner, wider receiver, running back, etc. If that person lights it up at camp, then make them the go to kick returner. No more switching kick returners every 4 games.
As for the draft, I can think of a few return specialists who may fit our team but whether they’re worth a pick is up to DC.
2016.02.11 19:06 JasonBourne008 /u/JasonBourne008's Tape Only Cornerback Review - Top 27 Prospects
|27||Cameron Sutton||Tennessee||5'11||185||Undrafted||That was pretty underwhelming. Showed less 0 effort against the run. Didn't get off blocks and when he was unblocked he actively ran away from the running back. He is a scared little girl.|
|26||Xavien Howard||Baylor||6'2||200||Undrafted||Just really really bad film. Man was exposed by mediocre players. Penalties, big catches, out-of position.|
|25||Briean Boddy-Calhoun||Minnesota||5'9||190||Undrafted||Very small frame, and he doesn't really make up for it with above average quickness or speed. Gives up way too many uncontested catches. Played in the nickel in 2015. Seems hesitant to get involved in the run game. Usually takes really bad angles.|
|24||Jonathan Jones||Auburn||5'10||180||Late 7th+||Only have film from 2014. Don't have much to say about what I did see from him. Seems thoroughly average (or below average) at everything he does.|
|23||Brian Poole||Florida||5'9||213||Late 7th+||Played safety for Florida in 2015. Really not much to say about him, doesn't stand out at all. And he would have to convert and learn to play CB. Compact body frame|
|22||Tre’Davious White||LSU||5'11||191||7th+||This guy couldn't get off a block if his life depended on it. Its honestly disgusting to watch. No effort.|
|21||Artie Burns||Miami||6'0||197||7th+||really nothing to see on tape. Doesn't stand out at all. Doesn't seem very fast|
|20||Tavon Young||Temple||5'10||174||6th+||Has the body of a nickel CB. Has good quickness, but gave up a lot of critical throws when it counted most. Sometimes played the WRs really tight, other times not so much. No contribution to the run game.|
|19||Harlan Miller||SE Louisiana||6'1||180||5th+||Pretty good size, probably should add a little muscle mass. Average against the run and appears average in coverage. Not much film on him.|
|18||Zack Sanchez||Oklahoma||5'11||175||5th+||Probably the smallest CB in the draft. Has elite acceleration. He never stops moving his feet when their is a pileup of players. Want to see him be a little more physical, I want him to be feisty. Not sure on his top-speed. Because of his size he probably has to play exclusively in the slot.|
|17||Cyrus Jones||Alabama||5'10||195||5th+||Gives up too much separation for my liking. Doesn't posses elite acceleration. He has the body of a safety. Seems to excel taking on blockers and getting involved in the run game. Has top-notch return skills, good vision, shifty moves. I am not sure he can play the CB position, and I'm not convinced he can play at safety either. He just doesn't know what he is doing out there as a CB|
|16||Kevon Seymour||USC||6'0||185||4th+||Only have two 2014 tapes on him so far. Slightly undersized as an X,Y corner, but perfect size for a nickel or dime corner. 3/4's of the time he is very tight on his man. Might be the best pound-for-pound DB in this class. He won't always make the stop but he gets off/away from blocks and engages the running backs.|
|15||Deiondre' Hall||Northern Iowa||6'2||190||4th+||Played safety in college. He will be at the Senior Bowl which is a good sign. Has ideal size for a CB. Eagerly gets involved in the run game.|
|14||Eli Apple||Ohio State||6'1||200||4th+||Seems undersized. Doesn't look very physical. Could probably play as the nickel. Watched more tape on him and he still doesn't stand out|
|13||Kendall Fuller||Virginia Tech||5'11||195||Late 3rd+||average size, below-average run support (doesn't get off blocks), doesn't let his WR run away from him. doesn't get his head around to locate the ball = big PI calls. Has good speed and exceptional acceleration, but is raw and doesn't know what he is doing out there|
|12||James Bradberry||Samford (II)||6'1||213||3rd+||Has really good length and size: he doesn't look to heavy for the position. He is clearly athletic and the perfect body type, but he must be a project given his lack of competition in college. Played in some tier 2 of Division 1 NCAA football.|
|11||Vernon Hargreaves III||Florida||5'11||192||2nd+||He is strong and physical, but seems to not be good at covering people. Run support is above average. Returns kickoffs and does other special teams work.|
|10||D.J. White||Georgia Tech||5'11||190||2nd+||Average body size which is good. Good coverage skills. Poor in the run game: Not because he doesn't get involved, he just doesn't know how to properly get off blocks and come up and tackle.|
|9||Mackensie Alexander||Clemson||5'10||195||2nd+||Big, physical, good in run support. Doesn't really stand out like he has been hyped. Has the swagger of a #1 prospect. Thinks he is Dion Sanders. His bark is bigger than his bite. I don't think his technique is very sound, he looks kinda sloppy out there. I think he has a low floor, but a high ceiling.|
|8||Taveze Calhoun||Mississipi State||6'1||180||2nd+||Long and rangy looking. Doesn't get out of breaks quickly. Doesn't have speed or quickness. Decent run support, can get off/around blocks. I wouldn't ca him a playmaker, he just does his job though. Played a bit of zone. At only 180 he needs to put on some more weight I would think (but that might make him even slower) I think he can be a solid CB2 on a defense.|
|7||KeiVarae Russell||Notre Dame||5'11||190||2nd+||Skinny legs. Unsure if he has enough speed to cover deep balls. Played a lot of press coverage. Probably the best form tackling CB in this class; almost always wraps up the legs; not a big hitter, but he nearly always gets his man. Seems to have good pass coverage technique which may be making up for a lack of quickness. I would say he possesses average speed and quickness. Often times the QB would look to throw at him and then not like the coverage and be forced to go elsewhere. Served an academic suspension in 2014.|
|6||Ken Crawley||Colorado||6'1||185||Early 2nd+||Could be a real steal. Plays with a chip on his shoulder. Very good in the run game, coming up and making tackles. Closes on WRs very quickly. Not sure about top speed. Has good footwork and technique. Is a playmaker & is physical with this Wide Outs.|
|5||Eric Murray||Minnesota||6'0||200||Early 2nd+||Gets off blocks and is very physical against the run. Needs to wrap up a little more, but love the desire to make the stop. Plays a lot of press coverage with some blitzs mixed in: Plays some zone as well. Very good body size, he looks like saftey kind of, or maybe a running back. Showed great improvement from his 2014 season. He is a playmaker; sometimes he messes up though. Not sure about top speed/agility. Has the look of a #1 CB. Probably the best against the run in this draft class.|
|4||William Jackson III||Houston||6'2||175||1st+||Long, but actually doesn't look to thin. Could be a great selection. Has great hands, and skills at high-pointing the football. Fluid movement in his hips. Looks like a natural. Made some BIG hits in the run game|
|3||Will Redmond||Mississipi State||6'0||185||1st+||Seems like an all-around player. Good in the run game, sticks tight on his man in coverage. Great acceleration. Played press-coverage at the line too. Made some big plays. Tore his ACL in October. Able to chase down runners all over the field. Open-field tackles|
|2||Kevin Peterson||Oklahoma State||5'10||175||1st+||Great speed and agility. Looks like a professional out there. Very fluid hip movement. Closes and makes up ground quickly. Get off all sorts of blockers. Gets involved in the running game; has a real knack for making tackles. Got exposed by Treadwell 1v1, but was in his hip pocket in most cases.Weighed in at the Senior bowl as the lightest player there, 15 lbs under his listed weight of 190 (I suspect he must have been ill). Is far and away the best form tackling CB in the class, doesn't submarine at runners ankles like I see so often, wraps up the legs.|
|1||Sean Davis||Maryland||6'1||200||1st+||He is the real deal. Great body size. Played off-corner and safety in college. I would have liked to see him play some press-coverage. Seems to possess uber quick twitch muscles. I would say he is bordering on great speed. Explosive player. Shoots out a cannon when tackling players, its really a pleasure to watch him play. Makes some mistakes for sure, but he was learning how to play corner so that's understandable.|

2013.08.21 16:41 kflinderman 132+ Teams in 132+ Days: South Carolina Gamecocks
The only reason we don't have the longest running rivalry is because we had to take a break, as WE LITERALLY ALMOST FUCKING KILLED ONE ANOTHER.After playing for six years at the State Fair, in 1902 a picture of a gamecock riding a tiger was created by mathematics Professor F. Horton Colcock. It later surfaced at a local tobacco store, and the USC students loved it. They began parading it around town and began causing a stir. Of course, the Clemson fans did not take too kindly to this, and after an historic upset, where South Carolina beat a Clemson team coached by none other than John Heisman 12 - 6, tensions grew. After several brawls the Clemson fans made an ultimatum. If the USC fans were to display the picture during the parade the next day, heads would roll. Now, can you guess what happened next? If you answered that the picture was brought to the parade, then congratulations, 100 points to Ravenclaw. Here is where things get interesting. That parade that the USC students "crashed" consisted of 400 or so cadets, and each were armed with sabres and bayonets. After being dismissed at the state house, tensions were already at a boiling point, and the cadets began marching towards campus. USC fans were ready for a fight, and a mere 30 individuals set up base on the Horseshoe equipped with shotguns and rifles. Now before actual fighting broke out, police arrived, and a compromise was made to burn the picture. After that, the rivalry was suspended until 1909 when games resumed to play without break for the next 103 years.
