Jacksonville Jaguars trim the competition at the ‘LEO’ position, part ways with veteran

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell made a huge emphasis in year one on rebuilding the Jaguars’ secondary. Though the verdict is still out, it seems that Caldwell has found a nice gem in safety Johnathan Cyprien. This year, in free agency, he made a huge emphasis on the pass rush. Notice I said pass rush, not defensive line. The defensive tackle position is one...

Revisiting the 2010 NFL Draft: AFC South

Looking back at it now, the 2010 NFL Draft was much more about the value of the players taken later in the draft rather than at the top. With Sam Bradford, Rolando McClain, Tyson Alualu and Derrick Morgan going in the top half of Round 1, there were certainly some forgettable picks.The teams in the AFC South division weren’t exempt from making some of these head scratchers. Four...

Jaguars five-year draft review: Little success with Top 10 picks

For the seventh year in a row, the Jacksonville Jaguars will have one of the first 10 picks in the NFL draft. No other team can come close to making a similar claim. While two of those selections were the result of trades rather than poor records the year before, the inability to get much out of the players they selected is why the Jaguars find themselves stuck in this rut. Pretty...

Jacksonville Jaguars still on the hunt for a big-bodied, one-tech defensive tackle

Even if you’re a die-hard Jaguar fan like myself, you have to admit, the defensive line play last season was quite pitiful. Luckily, thanks to the work of general manager David Caldwell so far this offseason, the defensive line is greatly improved. The Jaguars will likely have three new starters along the defensive line with Sen’Derrick Marks being the starter from year ago...

Jaguars’ fans should expect a defensive improvement in 2014

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense hasn’t been one that’s been too spectacular within recent memory. The days of John Henderson, Marcus Stroud and Mike Peterson are long gone and the Jaguars have been trying to find their predecessors over the past five years or so. With one of the largest salary caps in football, the Jaguars have definitely addressed this need in the past free...

Seattle’s influence on Jacksonville’s defense going forward

It has been about a year since Jaguars General Manager hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley to be the head man of the team down in Jacksonville after firing former coach Mike Mularkey just days prior. It was made clear from the get-go that Bradley was going to incorporate a hybrid, Seattle-like defense, full of faster, hard-hitting athletes, as opposed to prototypical...

Tyson Alualu's move paying dividends for Jaguars

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley made a bold decision to move Tyson Alualu from defensive tackle to end in the offseason. The move has paid off in the season’s second half. As Alualu has grown more comfortable with his new spot, the Jaguars have become a much better defense at stopping the run. “Getting repetitions and being in games, you start to get more and more comfortable with...

Jacksonville Jaguars: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 32 Record: 0-8 I still contend that the Jaguars will probably win a game at some point this season, but it’s arguable they’ve had the worst 8 game start to a season ever. They are the first team since the 1984 Oilers to lose the first 8 games of the season by 10 or more. The Oilers did it 10 times and eventually finished 3-13 (proving, once again, it’s very, very...

Jacksonville Jaguars: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2013

But to be honest, Pannel Egboh hasn’t been able to stick with any one team in the NFL. And until he showed what he could do from the defensive end position Saturday during the team’s scrimmage, not many fans...

According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, one of the reasons the Jacksonville Jaguars are moving Tyson Alualu to defensive end is because of some concerns over his knees. Part of the reason the Jaguars are moving Tyson Alualu from defensive tackle to defensive end is he fits the end position in Gus Bradley’s new scheme, but there is more to it than that. Alualu has...
