JACKSONVILLE – Jaguars 2021 Training Camp continued Wednesday . It was the seventh day of the team's first training camp under Head Coach Urban Meyer, featuring '21 camp 's second padded practice at the Dream Finders Homes Practice Complex. Wednesday was a " winners - losers " day . There was instant feedback on one-on-one offensive line versus defensive line drills, with Meyer naming a winner instantly and it getting announced over the speakers at practice before the next rep.

The Jacksonville Jaguars hit the one-week mark of training camp on Wednesday ( Day 7 ), which was declared “ Winners and Losers Day.”. Simply put, the theme of the practice was to monitor the matchups that took place on the field and announce a winner over the public address system, which helped motivate the team throughout the process.

Afterward, head coach Urban Meyer, receiver Laviska Shenault Jr., and defensive lineman Dawuane Smoot caught up with the media to discuss the session and more.

Perhaps the most intense and competitive practice to date, the Jaguars held their second day of full pads on “winner, loser” day, something coined in part by head coach Urban Meyer, and gave the team their first opportunity to compete when it counts to earn spots on the 53-man roster.

“A big roster is going to go to a smaller roster and I just think to be fair to players, you know we all have so much respect for them,” Meyer explained shortly after practice on Wednesday. “This is the way guys make a living and I don’t believe in subjectivity. I believe in what’s your record? Every man has a record, what is it? You are what your record is.

“If you lose a lot but you have a lot of potential that’s not real good. Just over the course of my career, the Ahmad Black’s, I can give you example after example. Maybe they area little slow but they just never lose so I try to create those [and do it safe].”

The Jaguars competed in several one-on-one drills, which were scored and announced via the team’s PA announcer on the field. If DJ Chark Jr. and a Shaquill Griffin were competing against each other, for example, the winner would be called following the repetition.

It’s just another way, without scrimmaging, Meyer says, to score everyone and figure out their overall record.

Notes and observations from Day 11 Jaguars Training Camp Tuesday: *As Marrone did Monday, both Coughlin and Bortles on Tuesday emphasized that for them this week was not about the Patriots but about the Jaguars . The Patriots as defending Super Bowl champions are the NFL standard, and it was clear this week the Patriots had an edge in several areas. That was noticeable Tuesday during 11-on-11 team work, when the Patriots were efficient and scored several touchdowns on passes from quarterback Tom Brady. The Jaguars , after having multiple flash moments in individual and 7 -on- 7

in Patriots Training Camp Observations for Day Seven The New England Patriots provided a lighter day of action on day seven of training camp practices, As head coach Bill Belichick advised earlier in the day, the team took a break from the pads, opting to practice in shells on Wednesday . Mac Bounces Back. One day removed from a practice littered with struggles, rookie Mac Jones looked much more comfortable on Wednesday . With both the pads and contact taking a brief respite, Jones once again showed that his accuracy and rapid release will serve him well towards success in the NFL.

The Jaguars will have some tough decisions to make, but training camp practices such as these will ultimately decide who will be on the opening-day roster following the preseason.

With that said, here are some of the observations we made on Day 7 of Jaguars training camp:

Competition at safety is intriguing

Over the offseason, the Jaguars made it a point of emphasis to address the defensive backs room, and particularly its safety position group. The team would sign safety Rayshawn Jenkins in free agency while selecting Andre Cisco in the third round of this year’s draft.

With the additions of both Jenkins and Cisco, the Jaguars’ safety position suddenly became a point of interest. The competition has already begun to heat up as last year’s Week 1 starters, Jarrod Wilson and Josh Jones, suddenly find themselves in an intense battle for the starting gig next to Jenkins.

After rough first day in pads, should Bengals fans be concerned about Joe Burrow?

  After rough first day in pads, should Bengals fans be concerned about Joe Burrow? The Cincinnati Bengals offense isn't instilling any confidence in fans a week into training camp and it starts with quarterback Joe Burrow. Burrow, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL draft, is coming off an ACL tear suffered in the 10th game of his career on Nov. 22. He did not open camp on the physically unable to perform list as some suspected he might, but his performance has been lacking so far. Burrow was 5 for 12 with an interception in 11-on-11 drills during Tuesday's practice, Jay Morrison and Paul Dehner Jr. reported for The Athletic.

After one day in full pads, the New England Patriots returned to shells and helmets for their seventh practice of this years training camp . The outfit change also brought a change in intensity: whereas Tuesdays session was a physical affair, Wednesdays …

Thus far in training camp, the Jaguars have rotated its second safety position, primarily playing Jones as the starter, but Cisco has had plenty of reps at the position as well. Another free-agent acquisition, Rudy Ford, has also seen some reps with the first unit.

WR DJ Chark’s strength gain is apparent

Entering his fourth season with the team, Chark hasn’t been the most talked-about receiver in camp, but he has consistently shown an ability to get open and make catches downfield, showing off the chemistry he already has between himself and quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Prior to training camp, Meyer tasked the veteran receiver with gaining strength, noting that he didn’t play well in 2020.

Now, it appears that Chark has certainly answered the call, showing up to camp noticeably bigger and stronger, seemingly able to take on defenders with much more force than in previous years. During one of the “winner, loser” sessions of the day, Chark went up against cornerback Chris Claybrooks, ultimately winning the blocking rep.

A day after making one of the more impressive catches of camp, Chark answered the call again with a two-touchdown performance during team drills, one during a redzone period and another as the team worked on a situation drill from three yards out. Both came from Lawrence.

Following practice, second-year receiver Laviska Shenault was asked about Chark the changes the receiver has made during the offseason and how he looks after making strides in the weight room.

“DJ is a whole different human being,” said Shenault. “I love seeing it, and it brings even more energy. He already had the energy, now he’s got even more. So, I love it, he’s just doing those little things the right way and he’s taking advantage of being stronger and faster—he was already fast, but being stronger and faster and things like that.”

Rookies beginning to stand out

The Jaguars will be relying on plenty of young pieces this year as it works to rebuild its roster after a complete rebuild from top to bottom. Some of those young pieces will be a few of the rookies from this year’s class.

While Lawrence has been the focal point for many - with good reason -, thus far this training camp, a few others are starting to prove their worth just fine.

The trio of cornerback Tyson Campbell, defensive tackle Jay Tufele and running back Travis Etienne continues to impress during camp.

Campbell has shown off his speed and quickness during team drills, and impressed on Wednesday, able to stick with receiver Laquan Treadwell in the red zone, forcing an incompletion. Throughout camp, Campbell has played primarily with the first-team defense, playing both on the boundary and inside.

This was was the first opportunity for coaches and media to get a closer look at Tufele, selected in the fourth round of this year’s draft. The rookie defensive tackle has impressed in team drills, showing off his strength and quickness. During the one-on-one session, Tufele was able to get the best of veteran offensive lineman Tyler Shatley.

The Jaguars will also get plenty of help offensively this year, and while Lawrence will bring the majority of the help, Etienne will be one of the more impressive players of the bunch. He’s shown plenty of quickness throughout camp, and his speed can’t be matched as he routinely beats linebackers in one-on-one matchups.

On third-and-three, Etienne would play the role of safety net for quarterback Gardner Minshew II, catching a pass in the backfield and quickly turning on the burners, running away from defenders up the sideline.

Walker Little continues stellar camp

Little would have been added with the trio listed above, but he deserves his own spot on the observations list. The rookie left tackle already looked impressive at the start of training camp but has looked even better with the pads on this week.

Will Tim Tebow make the Jaguars? Latest news, Urban Meyer's comments before roster cuts

  Will Tim Tebow make the Jaguars? Latest news, Urban Meyer's comments before roster cuts Tim Tebow is attempting to return to the NFL after six years away. Will he make the Jaguars' 53-man roster? Here's what the Jacksonville staff, including Urban Meyer, have said about his chances.Tebow is returning to the NFL after six years away from the sport. His college coach-turned-Jaguars coach, Urban Meyer, is giving the converted quarterback a chance to fight for a spot at the tight end position during the 2021 NFL preseason.

Going up against second-year pass rusher K’Lavon Chaisson, Little easily blanketed the young defender twice, while the third rep was a stalemate. Chaisson has shown plenty of speed to run around tackles in both one-on-one sessions and in team drills, but Little’s quick feet and technique were no match.

While starting left tackle Cam Robinson isn’t in jeopardy to lose his job just yet - he impressed on Wednesday after a down first day of pads -, he has earned plenty of praise from his coaches, including Meyer when asked about the rookie on Wednesday.

“I don’t think we are there yet but he certainly is right up there,” Meyer said when asked if the team has considered moving other players to get Little on the field

“Every off day we have a two-hour personnel meeting, so tomorrow we will have another one. We had one on Sunday and I have all the coaches rank one through … Well first of all it is a starting five so there is that cut limit and who is behind the cut line.

“We also do a mindset grade on each player — and mindset is competitive spirit, toughness, intelligence, leadership and adaptability. Everybody does that so we will spend over two hours on that tomorrow.”

Meyer noted that Little has just 20% body fat at 320 pounds, and that much is evident by how he plays on the practice field.

Starting defensive line taking shape

The Jaguars spent a chunk of cash on its defensive line this offseason, bringing in two defensive linemen in Roy Robertson-Harris and Malcom Brown. The team also invested in the defensive line via the draft.

Well, over the past week we have gotten a clearer picture of what the starting unit may look like as Brown and Robertson-Harris have taken reps at either defensive end position during team drills as the starters.

At nose tackle, Jacksonville has used second-year defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton. The run defense has already begun to improve, with plenty of strength inside. For now, it appears the team’s starting defensive line is set.
