Jaguars | Pleased with pass rushers

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 09:10:51 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been pleased with DEs Chris Clemons and Andre Branch during organized team activities and minicamp, which is why they felt they could release DE Jason Babin. Branch's burst off the ball and quickness around the edge is showing through, and he's consistently disrupted played in the backfield in 11-on-11 drills. LB Chris Smith doesn't fit the measurables for a hybrid end/linebacker, but the team liked what they saw from him at the Senior Bowl. LB Ryan Davis also doesn't have the typical LEO size, but the Jaguars are intrigued by his development. DE Gerald Rivers has worked at LEO and has the size to do so (6-foot-5, 258 pounds).
