Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Training Camp Preview

By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) -

REPORT DATE: July 21 (rookies), July 24 (veterans)

SITE: Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields, Jacksonville, FL

CAMP CONFIDENTIAL: The foundation of Jacksonville's rebuilding process has begun to take shape with the headliner being rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who was taken with the third overall pick in May's draft.

General manager Dave Caldwell also hit free agency hard, bringing in significant contributors at running back (Toby Gerhart), left guard (Zane Beadles) and on the defensive line (Red Bryant, Chris Clemons and Ziggy Hood).

Next up is figuring out if rookie receivers Marqise Lee or Allen Robinson can at least alleviate the loss of the very talented Justin Blackmon, who is suspended indefinitely for repeated violations of the league's substance-abuse policy.

KEY OFFENSIVE ACQUISITION: Gerhart spent the first four years of his career backing up Adrian Peterson in Minnesota, meaning he never got to show off his talents.

The former Stanford star, who was once the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy, is a punishing downhill runner with sneaky speed and wiggle.

KEY DEFENSIVE ACQUISITION: Bryant reunites with Gus Bradley and should give the coach an excellent base end who is strong at the point of attack and pushes the pocket at times.
