On day two of training camp we saw some of the same things we saw day one. But there were some big time performances.
Bortles continued to look pretty sharp along with his favorite WR Allen Robinson.
Keelan Cole had a breakout performance during the Jaguars second training camp practice. The small school undrafted free agent seems to be adjusting very well to the speed of the game - then again the pads haven't come on yet. However, he had several big time catches and displayed some early chemistry with second year QB Brandon Allen, who also had an impressive day.
After not taking the first first team RB snap during the Jaguars first practice, Fournette did get the first first team rep on day two. Ivory again appears to be the second string RB.
Allen Robinson spoke with the media after practice. He mentioned enjoying being able to face off with AJ Bouye in practice the last couple of days. And Robinson says he's "upped his physicality" this offseason. He spoke about his new WR coach Keenan McCardell challenging the group in the meeting room and on the practice field.
The defense continued to look strong, even with the offense having some impressive plays of their own.
Barry Church spoke with the media following practice and talked about the intensity level. He believes intensity will rise during the team's first padded practice on Saturday. In terms of the level of work Church said "they're (the coaches) on us". It's showed too. The coaches are noticeably louder than they have been in year's past. Church said he believes there is a lot more talent in the Jaguars secondary than the Cowboys secondary he was a member of last year. He talked about Leonard Fournette saying "I feel like the sky is the limit with that dude".
The kick return competition continues to heat up. Dede Westbrook, Rashad Greene, Shane Wynn, and Marqise Lee all took kicks. Lee seems to figure into the offensive game plan more so than Westbrook or Greene in 2017, so it would seem the favorites to land the gig are Westbrook and Greene.
Tomorrow the Jaguars will put pads on for the first time this year. Season ticket holders will be allowed to attend an evening practice on Saturday.
The Jaguars now have less than two weeks before they travel to New England to take on the Patriots for a couple of inter squad practices that will lead up to the team's first preseason contest of 2017.
