Date: Team: Pos:

Paul Posluszny remains a three-down middle linebacker.

Posluszny will be 31 in October and has plenty of severe injuries on his resume. But the Jags aren't backing off, meaning he'll be a fine IDP target once again. Posluszny is averaging a gaudy 9.73 tackles per game in his last 38 outings.

The Florida Times Union projects Rashad Greene as the Jags' top slot receiver.

The 5'11/182 Greene won't be asked to win on the outside. The refined route runner will work the middle of the field in new OC Greg Olson's scheme, but won't see much volume. Greene is behind Allen Robinson, Julius Thomas, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee on the target totem pole.

The Florida Times Union projects Marqise Lee as the Jags' No. 3 wideout entering camp, behind Allen Hurns.

Lee's rookie year started with a nagging hamstring issue and ended with some disappointing on-field performances. Then he missed most of the offseason program due to a knee issue. Lee will have ground to make up if he's going to beat out Hurns for the right to line up opposite rising stud Allen Robinson in two-wide sets. We want more upside in our late-round fliers.

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor missed most of OTAs due to a calf injury.

Injuries have often plagued the athletic yet underperforming Harbor. He'll compete to be Julius Thomas' backup at training camp.

Denard Robinson is expected to sub in for T.J. Yeldon "to begin certain possessions."

Yeldon has already been named the starter and three-down back. But the Jags aren't going to give him Le'Veon Bell/DeMarco Murray treatment, meaning Robinson and Toby Gerhart will have roles. Robinson projects for 4-7 touches per game plus kick return work out of the gate.

The Jaguars haven't had a 1,000-yard receiver since 2005.

That ties them with Oakland for the longest stretch between 1,000-yard seasons since free agency began in 1993. Certainly Jacksonville hasn't had much luck with receivers but it's a two-way street. Quarterback Blake Bortles will have to play better in 2015 if the Jaguars want to buck that trend. Allen Robinson has drawn rave reviews this offseason and is locked in as Jacksonville's top receiver. If he can stay healthy (last year he couldn't), 1,000 yards could be within his grasp.

Sergio Brown is expected to open the season as the Jaguars' starting free safety.

Brown received the 24th-highest safety grade from Pro Football Focus in 2014. Most of his 531 snaps last year came during LaRon Landry's four-game suspension for PEDs. Jaguars beat writer Ryan O'Halloran called free safety an "every-down, all-day position." If that holds true, Brown should get plenty of work this season.

The Florida Times-Union doesn’t project Storm Johnson or Bernard Pierce to make the 53-man roster.

Johnson "is in the most trouble of not making the roster," according to reporter Ryan O’Halloran. After a nondescript offseason, Pierce is in danger of losing the final running back spot. The Jaguars like UDFA Corey Grant for his special teams value behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson.
Jun 24 - 4:39 PM

Julius Thomas is expected to be a focal point for the Jaguars immediately.

The Jags didn't give Thomas a $46 million contract for fun. They're going to want him involved early and often as a pass-catcher, the area where he excels. ESPN reports OC Greg Olson is lining Thomas up in "various spots," and we'd expect Thomas to be split off the formation a ton just like he was in Denver. The problem is he's going from Peyton Manning to Blake Bortles, therefore losing a massive amount of red-zone opportunity and efficiency. Thomas' value has been propped up by his 24 touchdowns in his last 27 games with Peyton.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco says Allen Robinson was the team's "most impressive offensive player" during OTAs and had "numerous wow catches."

It's similar to what the Associated Press reported from Jags minicamp last week. Robinson has earned the title of No. 1 wideout with his play, starting with last year's injury-shortened yet impressive rookie campaign and continuing on once healed from a broken foot. If Blake Bortles can even take a small step forward in Year 2, Robinson will be a steal in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will work out at Larry Fitzgerald's receivers camp this summer.

They won't be the only ones, as Fitzgerald annually hosts a number of receivers and quarterbacks from around the league. At the camp, receivers work on route running, agility, speed, and receiver-specific drills. It doesn't automatically translate to success, but it doesn't hurt learning from one of the game's best in Fitzgerald. Robinson's ADP has climbed a full round over the past month.

According to the Associated Press, second-year WR Allen Robinson has been "unbelievable" at Jaguars OTAs.

Robinson -- who doesn't turn 22 until August -- has reportedly looked like a "star" at OTAs and minicamp, "showing big-play ability all over the field and most noticeably in and around the end zone." Blake Bortles described 6-foot-3, 210-pound Robinson as "fun to throw to." Bortles' passing inefficiency remains a concern, but Robinson is a sneaky bet to finish top ten in the NFL in targets this season. He's the clear-cut No. 1 pass option in Jacksonville.

Jaguars signed third-round G/C A.J. Cann to a four-year contract.

Cann is expected to push LG Zane Beadles for the starting job, but will most likely slide in as Jacksonville's top reserve on the interior. Cann could be in position to start in 2016 when there's no more guaranteed money left on Beadles' deal.
Jun 17 - 1:04 PM

Coach Gus Bradley wants Allen Robinson to play angrier and with more aggression.

The Jaguars want to see that "my ball" attitude out of Robinson, who has been a spring star for the Jaguars after returning from last season's broken foot. "We want to be able to throw it up to him and know he's going to come down with the ball," Bradley said. Robinson stands 6'3/210 and has a 42-inch vertical. He should be peppered with targets as the X receiver. Bradley wants Robinson to get to the point where Blake Bortles can throw him the ball even if he's covered.
Jun 17 - 1:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan says T.J. Yeldon is not only expected to start, but could wind up being a three-down player.

The Jaguars have said as much publicly. Yeldon was one of the top pass-protecting backs in this draft class and also has good hands as a receiver. Volume is going to be on his side even if offensive efficiency isn't.
