The Center/Left Guard Position Battles

23 July 2015 - 09:35 AM

The Jags added competition at these positions with the additions of Cann and Wisniewski, but who ends up starting where?  Will Beadles step up and play like he's paid? Should be fun to watch when the pads are on. 


Here's a blurb from DiRocco's ESPN jag-blog on Beadles getting some love from Marrone:


"He’s been outstanding," Marrone said. "A lot of times you think, 'Hey, this is a player that’s played quite a bit or played X amount of games; what you see is what you get,' but that has not been the case. I’ve seen him progress rapidly actually between Day 1 and Day 2. "

It’s not like Beadles was the only Jaguars lineman who struggled in 2014. The Jaguars averaged just 102.1 yards per game rushing (21st in the NFL) and gave up a franchise-record and league-worst 71 sacks. Granted, not all of those sacks belong to the offensive line, but the majority did, and that was a factor in how poorly rookie quarterback Blake Bortles played at times.

But Beadles was supposed to be the anchor of the line. The Jaguars gave him a five-year, $30 million contract after four seasons in Denver, and that’s why his performance was so disappointing.

The Jaguars signed center Stefen Wisniewski, who also can play guard, to a one-year, prove-it deal and drafted 6-foot-3, 313-pound A.J. Cann in the third round. That’s a pretty clear message that the interior of the line needs to play better.



I think we'll see Wiz at center because he knows Olson's system but Bowanko has a decent chance as well. 


The Beadles/Cann battle is tougher to call and might come down to Beadles having to go out each week and play well enough to keep the rookie off the field.

Say Goodbye to the ZBS

12 June 2015 - 12:50 PM

There have been murmurs of the team ditching the zone blocking scheme since Marrone and Olson were hired, and those reports are being confirmed by Oehser now. 


12.The Jaguars will lean more toward a gap-blocking scheme than zone. This was something that was discussed more this week than early in OTAs, with Bradley saying the emphasis on gap-blocking has been accompanied by the offensive linemen adding bulk and size in the offseason. Offensive guard Zane Beadlesicon-article-link.gifalso has widened his stance to transition to the adjustment. Look for less emphasis on the outside zone running game as the Jaguars make this transition.

4) Jacksonville Jaguars (2014 record: 3-13)


I think Jacksonville drafted a whopping five players who can contribute right away. Dante Fowler Jr. was the best pure edge rusher in the draft. T.J. Yeldon can start at running back, while A.J. Cann should start in the interior of the O-line. Defensive back James Sample is a perfect fit in Gus Bradley's defense. Receiver Rashad Greene can play and will help Blake Bortles in the passing attack.

It's a big year for Bradley and Dave Caldwell. The coach and general manager both need to show progress. I believe in the combo and believe the Jags, who enjoyed a strong free agency period, will surprise some folks with the arrow pointing up.





Voluntary Conditioning/ReHab starts 4/21/15

As guys begin to show up to workout and rehab injuries I found it interesting that a couple of these guys are healthy, or really close to it. 


(Miller, Pasztor, AR) 

Linebacker Paul Posluszny said last week that he has completely recovered from the torn pectoral muscle that cost him the final nine games of the 2014 season and has been working out normally. He said he just needs to get final clearance from team physician Kevin Kaplan and he will be a complete participant. Running back Denard Robinson(foot), receiver Allen Robinson (foot), receiver Tandon Doss (ankle), offensive tackle Austin Pasztor (hamstring), and defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) are expected to be full participants or limited only slightly. Defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks continues to rehab from surgery to repair a torn right ACL.
