Jags D

FROM ESPN

We've been speculating here...and wildly I'll add..about what sort of value the JAX defense might have this year...some say top 10...others say top 15 and a few even lower....

so here's some insight published last week...enjoy


Jacksonville ST/D

2002 STATS: 36 sacks, 14 INTs, 3 TDs
2003 MOVES: Added DE Hugh Douglas, LB Mike Peterson, KR Jermaine Lewis, FS Rashean Mathis

Can just a few players really make a special teams/defensive unit go from bottom 10 to top 10? In this case, yes. This offseason, the Jags added a young, underrated linebacker, one of the best special-teamers in the league, one of the hottest small-school safeties in the draft and the most sought-after defensive end in the free-agent market. Oh, and their new mentor (Jack Del Rio) is considered one of the brightest, most intense defensive-minded coaches in the league.

The key will be what kind of schemes the Jaguars run, and how the guys who played in Jacksonville last year adjust. Defensive tackles Marcus Stroud and John Henderson are young and well over 300 pounds each, so they should help Douglas get upfield for some sacks. The secondary isn't fantastic, but the Jaguars' defensive front seven could help out with added pressure on the opposing quarterback. If Lewis can regain the form that made him a two-time Pro Bowler, the special teams unit will be equally effective in setting up the offense to succeed. Factor in their third-place schedule, and the Jaguars' ST/D should be an appealing option in 2003.

2003 PROJECTED STATS: 42 sacks, 13 INTs, 6 defensive/special teams TDs
OTHERS AFFECTED: QB Mark Brunell (+), RB Fred Taylor (+), PK Danny Boyd (+)

Good post Nero. As I've stated before, I think they could crack the top 10.

These moves by the jags will go un-noticed by the vast majority of fantasy players, making the jags a decent D to grab late in the draft.

Good post Nero ;-D

What ever it takes I guess

I like the Jags D they will be a top 10. It goes to show you that Coughlin was holding this team back. Weaver brought in some young and very talented minds to the front office they analysised the problems and fixed them with the best talent available.

The Jags should push for a play-off stop this year just with there D alone

AAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAA

Danny Boyd PK

Oh that kills me. They say that Danny Boyd will have improved #'s because of the improvement in the DE.

Well that just changes my whole draft Strategy!
