Day 7 of training camp is in the books and the Jacksonville Jaguars should feel good about the progress they've made so far, even though they've had rough stretches. For proof, the offense was out of synch Wednesday, with wide receivers and tight ends dropping several passes.

Then again, this is the time for Trevor Lawrence and other players to work on their timing and try things out. As long as practices like the one on Wednesday don't become the norm, it shouldn't be a reason for concern.

Before practice began, head coach Doug Pederson met with the local media. Here are four things that stood out in his exchange on Day 7 of Jaguars training camp.

4. Doug Pederson is taking one step at a time in Jaguars training camp

The Jags are coming off a highly successful season but this is a new year and they'll need to put in the work if they want to return to the playoffs and seize the AFC South crown for the second straight year. Doug Pederson understands that, which is why he's focused on the task at hand, and that's preparing for the 2023 season without making any assurances.

"I think we're still ways away"; Pederson responded when he was asked if he has any idea of how good this team can be. "We're still working through a lot of things. And there are combinations with Anton [Harrison] and Walker Little, and working through scenarios there and seeing where we can get on paper."

"When you think, okay, you can probably be a decent football team and compete and be there at the end. But a lot of things factor into that. You don't go out on a limb and say, 'Hey, we're gonna be this, you know?'. But I like where the guys are, how they're working in practice. Even just the first day, the practice was fast. There's potential there, it's just hard for me to say we're gonna be this because we take it one day at a time."

Pederson is right. A lot of things go into having a successful season and instead of making any predictions, he's taking one step at a time.
