Jaguars' practice notes
By Paul Kuharsky
I scored it 2-1 Tyson Alualu, as did Mark Long of AP.
Vito Stellino of the Times-Union and Vic Ketchman of jaguars.com scored it 2-1 Vince Manuwai.
And the Jacksonville Jaguars assistant director of pro personnel, Louis Clark scored it 1-1-1.
The Jaguars first-round defensive tackle squared off in the Oklahoma drill against the guard from the same Hawaii neighborhood. A running back tries to work past the defender, who tries to get off a block and make a play, all run between narrowly positioned tackling dummies. Some snaps are close or could easily be scored draws.
Sunday night was the annual main event, but Wednesday evening was Alualu’s chance after a brief delay reporting after contract negotiations.
A couple other quick notes out of practice:
- I think Garrard needs to be more willing to step up into the pocket as defenders come at him instead of looking to move laterally.
- Kassim Osgood did nice work recovering a Zach Miller fumble in the end zone on an option keeper in a red-zone period, even if Miller had already broken the plane.
