Today was the first day of the Jaguars Mini Camp and it was great to see the team back on the field. There was a healthy crowd considering it was at 4pm on a Friday and the crowd definitely had a postive buzz. The defense worked on the far field so it was hard to see much of their practice so my details on them are a little sketchy. I did see lots of the new WRs along with the QBs. Now for a few notes:
-Garrard is leaner, Landry is bigger and the O-Line is absolutely huge. Tra Thomas and Eugene Monroe were particularly large.
-Jarret Dillard has great hands, never letting the ball get to his chest. He was also able to get out of his routes quickly.
-Mike Thomas did look short on the field but he caught everything that was thrown his way. I was worried that Garrard would overthrow him but he was able to keep the ball down.
-The real highlight was Derek Cox who was quick to the ball and even got an interception. All the doubters beware, we could have another Mathis in our midst.
-Brian Williams was lined up as a CB and Considine was playing Safety.
-Tiquan Underwood dropped a few balls.
-Torry Holt looked to be kind of going at half speed to me but you have to figure that an 11 year veteran has little patience for mini camp.
-The word out of the morning was that Lemon looked bad but I thought he wasn’t too terrible in the afternoon. The other young QBs did not look impressive.
-Saw Weatherford hitting some corner kicks, Podlesh looked mediocre. This should be interesting at training camp.
