Campservations: Day 10

8.08 Training Camp - Campservation

JACKSONVILLE – Jaguars 2022 Training Camp continued Monday.

It was the 10th day of the first training camp under Head Coach Doug Pederson, featuring a full-pads practice at Episcopal School of Jacksonville Knight Sports Campus. Each day throughout camp, members of Jaguars Media – senior writer John Oehser, senior correspondent Brian Sexton, senior reporter/editor J.P. Shadrick and reporter/host Ashlyn Sullivan – will share an observation.

Here are Monday's "campservations:"

John Oehser, Jaguars Senior Writer…

There have been many encouraging signs early in '22 camp. The consistency of left tackle Cam Robinson is one. Early indications that rookie No. 1 overall selection Travon Walker belongs in the NFL is another. But perhaps most encouraging is the development of the Jaguars' 2021 NFL Draft class. Not only has quarterback Trevor Lawrence (Round 1, No. 1 overall) looked good early in camp, running back Travis Etienne Jr. (Round 1, No. 25) appears fully recovered from the Lisfranc injury that cost him his rookie regular season. Cornerback Tyson Campbell (Round 2, No. 33) has flashed throughout camp, and right tackle Walker Little (Round 2, No. 45) appeared to play well in Thursday's preseason-opening loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The latest positive from the '21 class: A standout practice Sunday from safety Andre Cisco (Round 3, No. 65), who had the hit of camp on Etienne that day and also forced a fumble in a red-zone drill. "He's been great," Lawrence said of Cisco. "He's willing to take some calculated risks, but he's usually right. I haven't seen him be wrong too many times. He's had a couple of plays where he comes out of nowhere and you're like, 'How can I even see this guy on this route? I'm looking the opposite direction.' You need plays like that from a safety."

The Jaguars looked a bit tired Monday. That may be due to what felt like the hottest day of the summer or perhaps it was a practice that lasted nearly two and half hours. It no doubt had something to do with a fully-padded live practice Sunday that some observers called the most physical practice they had seen in years. I watched outside linebackers Josh Allen and Travon Walker slowly trudge their way to the sleds after a team period Monday and couldn't help notice the effort it took two supremely gifted athletes to get the next work session started. Also: Jaguars Head Coach Doug Pederson didn't expect a lot from his team last Thursday night; he knows it's about September, not August. But you couldn't watch practice on Monday and not think perhaps he wanted to see more than what we saw at the Hall of Fame Game. There's plenty of time to get ready, but Sunday and Monday felt like a message from the head coach: "We have to be better."

A day after one of the most physical practices in '22 camp, Pederson kept the team on the field for nearly two and a half hours in the humidity Monday. With a players day off Tuesday and another Thursday, it made sense to work as much on the field as possible. Rookie inside linebacker Devin Lloyd is taking another step toward returning to team work, as he worked in individual drills Monday; veteran linebacker Foye Oluokun after practice said he has no doubt Lloyd will be ready when it's time. There's no rush to get Lloyd back on the field, as there's a long season ahead, so I would be surprised to see him at all Friday against the Cleveland Browns. On the other hand, with a competition for the right tackle ongoing, fourth-year veteran Jawaan Taylor needs to play as soon as he's healthy. Taylor was back in 11-on-11 team work Monday after missing last week's practices with a hamstring issue, and he rotated reps with the first group with Little. The second-year veteran Little started last week's Hall of Fame Game, and coaches liked his performance in Canton. If Taylor's hamstring responds well to the practices this week, don't be shocked to see him get some reps Friday against the Browns as the right tackle battle continues.

Monday's practice was far less intense than Sunday's since there was no live tackling Monday, but the pads were still on and the Jaguars got some good reps. It was positive see Taylor back participating in team drills and it's obvious the coaching staff views the right tackle spot as very much still a competition. Taylor and Little switched off basically every rep in team period Monday, and there is no clear starter despite Little getting all reps Thursday with Taylor out. Also Monday: Running back James Robinson participated in drills more extensively than I have seen all camp. He was taking snaps with the first-team offense for the first time all camp, catching a pass and getting a couple of carries. For a guy who tore his Achilles only eight months ago, this is monumental.
