The Jacksonville Jaguars held two practice sessions today at the practice fields at Alltel Stadium. The players were in full pads for the evening practice for the first time in camp. Following the morning practice head coach Jack Del Rio praised the performance of the offense early in camp.
"I think that offensively, this is the best start we've had in training camp in four years, so I think that's a real positive. I think you can see the work that's being put in, the development of some of our young players, in particular on offense, and that's exciting for the Jaguars," Del Rio said.
As Del Rio had planned, the highlight of the evening practice was players competing in "Oklahoma" drills. A record crowd of 3,109 was on hand, most cheering throughout the drills.
"I think what you look for is competitive spirit and how a guy responds, win or lose, how he carries himself," said Del Rio on the players competing in the Oklahoma drills. "I think it energizes practice for the first time putting on pads, everybody is excited to hit. It's a good way to start."
Camp will continue on Tuesday with two practice sessions, at 11:00 a.m. (special teams practice) and 7:15 p.m. (full pads) at the practice fields.
