Second-Year Players Could Give Jaguars' Offense A Boost

  1. The Jaguars expect several second-year players to have greater roles in the offense in 2010 and first and foremost, RB Rashad Jennings will be counted on to lighten the load of Maurice Jones-Drew, whose 365 touches in 2009 were 106 more than his previous high (259) in '08 and while MJD was outstanding in his first season as the club's bell cow back, he wore down late in the season. Another young player the Jaguars believe can contribute more next season is TE Zach Miller, the most athletic tight end on the roster, gives the Jaguars a deep-play threat, and will look to build on an eight-catch, 69-yard, two-TD performance in Week 17. WR Jarett Dillard was starting to come on last season when he broke his ankle in Week 10 and Dillard's excellent hands and leaping ability (a 42-inch vertical jump) could make him a favorite target, particularly in the red zone.
