Previewing the Jaguars '10 roster - The Tight Ends (Part II)

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Concerns:

I have two concerns. One is the durability of Zach Miller. A young player who constantly battles with injury is a concern. I hope he will show up 100% healthy for the second part of OTAs and for training camp. The Jaguars need his talent.

The other concern is depth. If something happens with Marcedes that would be almost as big a blow as if this team would lose MJD; Knighton and Garrard (The 3 most important players of the team cannot lose!). The same goes a bit for Zach Miller; although his loss would be only on the passing game; while Marcedes’s key blocks would make the life much tougher for the running game and the QB protection as well. Wilford and Potter are guys; who can come in and contribute for 1-2 games; but not in a long term.

But to end my article in a very positive tone; if Miller and Lewis stays healthy and continue where they left in ’09; and Koetter and Boras can bring both players to the next level; and get really involve with the passing game; I think the TEs might represent an almost as effective threat as the running game lead by Maurice Drew. In fact if there is one position I’m really looking for to see this season would be not the running backs; but the tight ends. Keep your eyes on the Jaguars tight ends in ‘10

    This is a great article Zoltan. Over th last couple of years we all kind of focused a lot on the WR position because of how weak it was. We forgot about the Tight Ends but now we have a great unit to be excited about. Lewis gives us everything we could ask for in a TE and Miller will be a huge threat if he stays healthy. i like the depth at the position too. Wilford made the right decision to switch position and he is going to add a lot to the spot.

    Thank you boh for the nice words. If Koetter and Boras can work together very well and Lewis and Miller will play like they played in 2009 (Plus can avoid injuris) watch out; cause all of sudden the Jaguars will have aerial attack again. ( I think the O-line will give Garrard much more time this year- because of Monroe; Forney and Britton- to make the crucial throws.)I just watched the highlight iof the Jets game in ’09; where Marcedes AND ZACH- made key catches. I think we will see that much; much more often!

    I hope Zach Miller has a great season, but I want Marcedes to get that ProBowl that he deserves…along with some money. Although Marcedes is an unsung hero of blocking, his receiving ability along with Wilford and Millers’ will open up the running game which I believe Koetter will utilize very well.
