By now, we are all aware of which players the Jacksonville Jaguars draft class is composed of. I though it might be fun to list all the draftees here in a fun way: GIF form! For those who don’t know, a GIF is a type of file that repeatedly plays a video sample. Below you will find a GIF for each of the nine draft selections, as well as an explanation for each one. NOTE: You MUST leave your cursor over the image window for the video to continue playing. Enjoy!
I decided to use a Bortles run instead of pass, mainly because this was one of my favorite plays of his. Bortles is running read-option, and he fakes the pitch to the back, which the defender totally bites on. This springs Bortles for a nice gain.
Robinson starts off catching a simple quick pass, but then reverses field and quickly has the whole Ohio State defense chasing after him. He then uses great vision and burst to find an open running lane and take it to the house.
Linder gets great push off the snap and is able to drive his man(#97) upfield and out of the running lane. Too bad the runner got hit in the backfield, but on a positive note Linder shows a little nastiness at the tail end of the play. Always good to see from one of your big guys up front.
If you search for video on Bowanko, this might be the only thing you find. It’s not exactly pretty. I’m not sure if he got his foot stepped on, or if he just slipped on an invisible banana peel. Hopefully, we won’t be seeing this on Sundays.
Johnson starts off helping out the right tackle by getting a great chip on the defensive end. Bortles then hits him with a pass, and he makes a move on the first defender, splits two others, and hits the boost button. He finishes the run with a nice spin move to avoid the tackle, and gains a few extra yards.
