4. Which rookie has stood out so far for the Bucs on offense or defense?

"4th round draft pick Kwon Alexander stepped up in the preseason and won the starting MLB that was supposed to belong to Bruce Carter. He has done a great job, improving each week and you can tell the coaching staff is pleased with his progress."

My take:

The Jaguars haven’t done a very good job of exploiting the middle of the field and it doesn’t look like that will change this week. If Alexander continues to play well, he should have no issues containing the essentially non-existent tight end component of the Jacksonville passing game.
