Setting realistic expectations for T.J. Yeldon – Bleacher Report

"He should also cut down on his fumbling, one of his biggest flaws at Alabama. He fumbled 10 times over three seasons, and, realistically, he should be expected to fumble once, maybe two times, the entire season.Yeldon’s the type of back who will do more than he gets credit for, although he can still put up numbers and score touchdowns like his competitors. Rookie seasons are never easy, but Yeldon has the ability and setup to shine in 2015."

"These are four targets that will receiver catches because each of them are playmakers.  Greene can fit into this complicated equation for competing in receptions because the 5-foot-11, 182-pound receiver is a typical size for a slot player.  He also has 4.5-second 40-yard dash speed that allows him to accelerate quickly to create separation out of his breaks and get on the top side of coverage."

"Ideally for the Jaguars, rookie T.J. Yeldon will establish himself as the lead guy, followed by Denard Robinson, Toby Gerhart and others.Only so much can be assessed during the offseason workouts (no pads), especially at running back. But the Jaguars left for summer vacation pleased with Yeldon."

"Furthering Yeldon’s transition is the strong commitment the Jaguars have shown to the running game. This offseason saw the addition of three new offensive linemen, two of whom are expected to start immediately at center and right tackle. The third, rookie third-round pick A.J. Cann, is expected to battle veteran Zane Beadles for the starting left guard spot. This should help the Jaguars improve upon a rushing attack that finished 21st in yards per game last season."
