Cheap Nike Jacksonville Jaguars Josh Allen Jersey Authentic 2019

JACKSONVILLE – This was a big surprise in the best way imaginable.

That was the consensus around the Jaguars Thursday night after using the No. 7 overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft on Josh Allen, an edge player from the University of Kentucky.

The Jaguars couldn’t have been more surprised Allen was available.

They couldn’t have been happier, either.

“As it was coming down, there were a number of picks in front of us where we thought he would go,” Jaguars Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin said shortly after selecting Allen. “When he fell to us, he was a superior football player – and too good a player to possibly pass up.”
Allen (6-feet-5, 260 pounds), the 2018 Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year, was a consensus Top 5 selection in most mock drafts leading to Thursday.
“In most of the hypothetical scenarios we put together, he was gone,” Coughlin said.

But Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said there was a feeling in the last week or so that Allen might be available at No. 7.

“About a week ago, I started doing some due diligence and talking to people around the league, and this was the guy who kept coming up like, ‘Hey, he might be there because of what some teams need and what some teams are going to go with,” Caldwell said.

While the top three selections – Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray to the Arizona Cardinals at No. 1, Ohio State edge player Nick Bosa to the San Francisco 49ers and Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams – were widely projected before the draft, the Oakland Raiders surprised many by selecting Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell No. 4 overall.

When the New York Giants selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ selection of highly-regarded linebacker Devin White of Louisiana State, it left the surprising scenario of Allen available for the Jaguars at No. 7.

“We thought he was the guy that if two quarterbacks went we could be staring at,” Caldwell said.

Caldwell also said while much pre-draft speculation focused on a possible trade the Jaguars got no legitimate trade offers for the selection.

“We got one call before from way down in the first round that wasn’t worth our time,” Caldwell said. “It would have had to have been something significant and we weren’t moving into the 20s for what they were offering.”

Caldwell said one reason the team didn’t believe Allen would be available was the belief was three teams ahead of them – the Raiders, Jets and Giants – all would take pass rushers. The Raiders and 49ers indeed focused on that area, but the Jets’ selection of Williams and the Giants’ selection of Jones left Allen on the board.

Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson, a player widely projected to the Jaguars before the draft, was selected by the Detroit Lions No. 8 overall. Caldwell called Hockenson “a very good player.”

“We had Josh rated a level higher than him (Hockenson) as a player,” Caldwell said. “We said from the get-go we would take best available player.”

Coughlin called Hockenson “very close to up where we were.”

“But Allen was the higher thought-of player,” Coughlin said, adding that the Jaguars also considered offensive line at No. 7.
“We were very much involved in offensive linemen, the tight end and the outstanding defensive player if he fell to us,” Coughlin said. “That’s kind of the way it went.”
Caldwell said the Jaguars also liked Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, who was selected by the Buffalo Bills No. 9 overall.

“He was a consideration; we like Ed,” Caldwell said. “But if we were going to go defense it was going to be more on the edge.”

Caldwell said he envisions Allen initially playing edge rusher in passing situations opposite fourth-year defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, a Pro Bowl selection following the 2017 season. Caldwell said he would play a role similar to former defensive end Dante Fowler Jr., who had eight sacks in 2017 before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams midway through this past season.

Allen was among the Jaguars’ 30 pre-draft visits in March, a time when – as was the case during most of the pre-draft process – it seemed unlikely he would be available when the Jaguars selected No. 7.

“We had a real fine visit with him,” Coughlin said, adding with a smile. “We kidded him about where he was going to go. He said, ‘Well, maybe you’ll have to trade up.’ So, I just reminded him of that one.”

China Jacksonville Jaguars Telvin Smith Womens Jersey Free Shipping

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith has some harsh words for NFL players who charge a fee to attend their youth football camp.

“Y’all suckers,” he said.

Smith doesn’t believe that kids should have to pay to attend those camps — he doesn’t charge a fee for his — and said that players who do charge a fee, even a nominal one, have lost touch with what he called the “humble gratitude” that allowed them to reach the NFL.

Smith, who made those comments in a short video on Instagram, said in a phone interview with ESPN that he wasn’t calling out any specific player. However, he did say he felt that players charging for youth camps are essentially robbing the community.

“I keep saying robbing these kids because I feel that’s what we’re doing,” Smith told ESPN. “We’re in the NFL. We’re in a multibillion corporation. You can write that off on your taxes, but you’re charging these kids? There’s no part of it that’s right.

“Your heart’s not in the right direction when you’re doing that.”

Smith wanted to be clear that he wasn’t calling out any player in particular and that he wanted to make sure people understood he isn’t talking about the multiday or overnight intense instructional camps. Camps such as those, which require the campers to be housed and fed, can cost close to nearly $1,000 per camper. Specialty companies run many of those types of camps, which bear the names of the sponsoring players.

Smith said he’s talking about the camps that usually last three to four hours, where it’s more about the experience of meeting an NFL player than learning football skills. Those camps should be free, Smith said, and there are ways to defray the cost. NFL players can apply for $1,000-$4,000 grants from the National Football League Foundation to help fund their camps. In addition, players are able to secure sponsors to help cover costs, such as local restaurants to provide lunches and drinks.

Smith said he did that last year for his first camp in his hometown of Valdosta, Georgia, in which he said he had more than 500 kids show up. He’s finalizing details for this year’s camp to be held in mid-June.

“Guys can reach out to the community and they’ll donate food, they’ll donate money, they’ll donate water,” Smith said. “We had so many things donated we had so much left over.

“… That’s how I know it can be done. I had to buy extra shirts. But I’m willing to do that because we’re buying these designer clothes and cars and jewelry and then you can’t give $600 or $2,000 extra out of your pocket to make sure a couple extra kids come to your camp? I’m going to make sure I’ve got that.”

Smith said athletes have a responsibility to give back to the community and there are a lot of kids who can’t afford to pay to attend a camp.

“That’s wrong,” Smith said. “You’re not giving back to the community. You’re taking from the community.”

Many players do hold free camps. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles’ foundation partnered with local companies to host free one-day kids camps in Orlando and Jacksonville. Cincinnati quarterback A.J. McCarron and San Francisco safety Jaquiski Tartt each have held free camps for kids in Alabama.

Last July, Miami’s Mike Pouncey and Pittsburgh’s Maurkice Pouncey held their sixth annual Pouncey Twins Football Camp in Lakeland, Florida. More than 800 kids attended the free camp, held in conjunction with the Lakeland Police Athletic League.

Tennessee defensive end Jurrell Casey held a free camp for offensive and defensive linemen last July in Long Beach, California. That same month Seattle defensive lineman Michael Bennett held a free camp in Hawaii and criticized Golden State’s Steph Curry for charging $2,000 to attend his camp in Hawaii.

“You’ve got to remember where you came from at the end of the day,” Smith said. “C’mon, man, stop thinking we’re more than what we are.”

Cheap NFL Chris Ivory Jacksonville Jaguars Womens Jerseys Paypal

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars ended their offseason program on June 15. Here’s a look at how they fared:

Offseason goals/grade: The Jaguars entered the offseason with three things in mind: Get faster, get tougher and get better on special teams. They feel like they’ve accomplished the first with the additions of CB A.J. Bouye, RB Leonard Fournette, WR Dede Westbrook and CB Jalen Myrick. Joe DeCamillis is regarded as one of the best special-teams coaches in the NFL, so that alone should make the Jaguars better, but they also gave him solid special-teamers in LBs Lerentee McCray, Audie Cole and Josh McNary. As for getting tougher, that’s something we won’t know until training camp and the preseason, but coach Doug Marrone has been hammering the players about becoming stronger and more physical since the offseason program started in April. The offensive line sets the tone there, and Marrone called it out publicly at a season-ticket-holder forum, so it’ll be interesting to see how the unit responds. Grade: B.

Move I liked: The Jaguars want to be a run-based offense and not have QB Blake Bortles throw the ball 37 times per game (which is his career average), and they needed a better option than Chris Ivory or T.J. Yeldon as the primary ball carrier, so they took the best running back in the draft in Fournette. The 6-foot-1, 228-pound rookie ran for 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns in three seasons at LSU, including 1,953 yards and 22 TDs in 2015. The Tigers built their offense around him, and when he was healthy, he was certainly up to the task. He won’t have the same kind of season Ezekiel Elliott did last year as a rookie because the Jaguars’ offensive line is average at best, but Fournette was the perfect match for Marrone and new team executive vice president Tom Coughlin.

Move I didn’t like: It’s actually a move the Jaguars didn’t make that I didn’t like. They did add help at offensive tackle with Branden Albert and Cam Robinson, but GM Dave Caldwell failed to address the interior of the offensive line, which was a weak spot last season. It would have taken at least $9 million annually to lure any of the top free-agent guards (Kevin Zeitler, Ronald Leary, Larry Warford and T.J. Lang), and Caldwell didn’t want to spend that much on the position. He also didn’t want to pay guard Kelechi Osemele, nor center Alex Mack the year before. Had the team added just one interior lineman each year, the line would be significantly better and not the second-biggest question mark on the team behind quarterback. That would certainly have made things easier for Fournette in 2017.

Biggest question still to be answered in training camp: The entire season hinges on whether Bortles can make better decisions in the pocket, be more accurate with his throws and cut down on turnovers. They’re all connected, because it follows that better decisions lead to more accurate throws, which leads to fewer turnovers. Those are his biggest issues. He has committed the most turnovers in the NFL in the past three seasons (63) and has thrown more interceptions (51) in that span than anyone other than Philip Rivers (52). We’ll get a better idea of whether he’s improved in these areas when the Jaguars have joint practices with New England and Tampa Bay in training camp.

Cheap NFL Dante Fowler Jr Jacksonville Jaguars Womens Jerseys Online

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell is excited about what he has seen during the Jags’ nine organized team activities — especially from several young defensive ends.

Campbell said Thursday that he’s impressed with rookie Dawuane Smoot, second-year player Yannick Ngakoue and third-year player Dante Fowler Jr., and he can’t wait to see how the trio performs when training camp begins in late July.

“This team is stacked with talent, especially in D-line,” Campbell said. “We have a lot of guys who are just flashing, making plays, just being able to turn the corner.

“I’m excited to see how camp’s going to be when we put pads on.”

So what exactly impressed Campbell about those three players?

Campbell likes Ngakoue’s desire to continually improve. Ngakoue is coming off a rookie season in which he set the franchise’s single-season rookie sack record (8.0), a mark previously held by Tony Brackens, the franchise’s all-time leader in sacks (55.0).

“He’s hungry,” Campbell said. “He’s always trying to get better, working on small things every day. Whether it’s hands, hand placement, his first step, the way he comes off moves. He’s working every day on something different and you see his progression. He had a great year last year, but I think he’s getting ready to become one of those premier pass-rushers.”

Campbell called Fowler, who missed his rookie season because of a torn ACL and had only 4.0 sacks last season, the best athlete on the field.

“That guy’s just special,” Campbell said. “His technique might not be perfect, but just the things he can do is amazing. He’s getting his technique better every day.”

Campbell also really likes what he has seen from Smoot, the Jaguars’ third-round pick from Illinois. Smoot was regarded as a potential first-round pick after his junior season, when he had 7.0 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. While his reduced sack total his senior year caused his draft stock to drop, the Jaguars were elated to snag him in the third round.

“He’s really good dipping and ripping,” Campbell said. “He has a mean rip move and he has a feel for timing, which usually carries over.

“… We’re just in shorts, so, you can never get too excited, but he’s flashed a little bit. I told him, ‘Don’t disappear on me when the pads come on. I need you to keep this same stuff up when the pads come on.’ But he has a lot of potential.”

Aside from heaping praise on Ngakoue, Fowler and Smoot, Campbell says he believes the Jaguars are on the verge of becoming a very good team. A veteran of four playoff appearances and a Super Bowl, Campbell knows what a championship-caliber team looks like, and he sees the Jaguars as having the necessary pieces to match up against the NFL’s best.

“I want to make sure everybody [in the locker room] knew that we were closer than we thought,” Campbell said. “I came around and told the team, ‘I’ve been a part of winning teams. I know what it takes.’ We have every piece.

“It just comes down to execution. It comes down to taking care of the small things. It comes down to having an attitude toward the small things so that you do them well, and then once you take care of the small things, then the big things become easy. They become small things.”

Despite Campbell’s optimism, it’s natural to be dubious about the Jaguars’ fortunes in 2017. The team is coming off a 3-13 season, hasn’t had a winning record or made the playoffs since 2007, and has lost 11 or more games for six consecutive seasons.

Yet Campbell maintains a positive approach — he also had effusive praise for cornerback Jalen Ramsey and nose tackle Abry Jones — because he knows the defense is following his lead. He is regarded as one of the best locker room leaders in the NFL, an added benefit for a Jaguars team that signed him to a four-year, $60 million contract ($30 million guaranteed).

“When you have talent and you work hard, eventually good things are going to happen,” Campbell said.

Cheap NFL Brandon Allen Jacksonville Jaguars Womens Jerseys Free Shipping

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The NFL released the preseason schedule on Monday. Dates and times for all games haven’t been announced, but here’s a first look at the opponents for the Jacksonville Jaguars:

Week 1 (Aug. 10-13) at New England

Comment: Opening against the defending Super Bowl champions will be an early – and overanalyzed – barometer of how much the Jaguars have improved, even though it’s unlikely that Tom Brady or other key Patriots starters will play much (if at all). This will be the first time Blake Bortles will test his supposedly improved footwork and delivery against an opponent. He spent more than two months in California at 3DQB after the 2016 season ended, but it’s easier to do everything properly in a controlled situation. Will he revert to his poor mechanics when he’s in live action?

Week 2 (Aug. 17, 8 p.m. ET on ESPN) vs. Tampa Bay

Comment: The teams held joint training camp practices in Jacksonville last year before the teams played at EverBank Field, and there have been preliminary discussions about doing it again this year. Last year’s practices really exposed the struggles of Dante Fowler Jr. He was having a great camp working against Luke Joeckel and Jermey Parnell but got shut down against the Bucs and was no factor for much of the season. This matchup against the Bucs will give him a chance to show if he has made marked improvement.

Week 3 (Aug. 24-27) vs. Carolina

Comment: This will be the first preseason meeting with the Panthers since 2006. The teams played seven times from 1995-2006, including the Hall of Fame game in the inaugural season for both franchises. Starters played the majority of the game in Week 3 so this will be the first extended look at the Jalen Ramsey-A.J. Bouye cornerback pairing. How much will we see Cam Newton? Though he’s expected to be recovered by the time training camp begins, the Panthers may be cautious with him as he recovers from rotator cuff surgery.

Week 4 (Aug. 31) at Atlanta

Comment: The Jaguars will close the preseason against the Falcons for the fifth time in the last seven years. They’ve played Atlanta more than any other team in the preseason (12 times). Rookie quarterback Brandon Allen played the entire game and threw for 164 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in last year’s Falcons 17-15 victory. He may get another chance to do that this year – or maybe we’ll see another rookie quarterback get the majority of the reps because the assumption is the Jaguars will draft one at some point later this month.
