JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Running back Toby Gerhart's first day in pads went just the way Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley envisioned it would when he signed the former Stanford standout to a free-agent contract in March.
"...He had a gap scheme with a small space, and he stayed true to it and hit it and had good pad level," Bradley said. "I think it was a good sign."
In other words, the 6-foot, 231-pound Gerhart pounded through the hole, which is exactly what the Jaguars want, writes the Florida Times-Union's Vito Stellino.
"I try not to explode and blow up one of my teammates. I’m a bigger back, a power back," Gerhart said. "I’m able to wear defenses down. I feel like the more carries I get, the better rhythm I have. I get lathered up. I think I’m at my best when I get multiple carries in a row."
