Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N
Good Morning Bruins!
As some of you may know, I'm the Jacksonville Jaguars blogger for SB Nation . I'm also a recently converted UCLA fan because of the great players the Jaguars have picked up from your fine institution. With the Jaguars having minicamp this weekend, I thought I'd drop by and give you a quick update on a few of your guys on our roster.
Brandon Breazell, Wide Receiver: Brandon's in town for a "tryout". No contract has been extended and to be honest he's got a pretty uphill battle to make the roster. Personally, I'd cut Matt Jones to give Brandon a shot. Jacksonville has VERY good luck with undersized players from UCLA, and it would be great to see Jones-Drew and Breazell on the field together. So far he's been quiet during camp, but I'll be sure to pay a bit more attention now that I know he's in town.
Maurice Jones-Drew: Looks great. He had a few plays that had it been "real football" would have been 80-yard touchdowns. Jones-Drew will take on a larger role in the running game as his kick return duties have been cut. MJD is taking lots of reps in the passing game with short quick passes that put him in open space.
I'm sure you all are as excited to see MJD outperform Reggie Bush by a huge margian, this trend will continue in 2008 as he takes even more carries.
Marcades Lewis: This is a guy who's been nicked up through the offseason, but practiced with the team for the first time during minicamp. His blocking is outstanding considering his hype as a pass-catching TE. This year expectations are high as his coverage should be a little lighter with the improvements at receiver for the Jaguars. I'm taking a wait and see approach, but he's got all the potential for a breakout season.
