David Garrard is holding closed practices with several Jaguars players in order to remain a cohesive unit until the NFL lockout is lifted and players can return to normal practice sessions. In the interim, Garrard is looking to the usually suspects in the Jaguars arsenal–Mike Thomas, Jason Hill, Marcedes Lewis and Maurice Jones-Drew.
The Jaguars drafted Cecil Shorts in the fourth round of this year’s NFL draft.
There is a short list of receivers that could make for an interesting free agency period. The Jaguars receivers now are more possession types and third-down specialists. Thomas led the team with 66 catches and Lewis made the Pro Bowl.
There is no true deep threat and No. 1 receiver on this team.
These receivers could be in the mix once free agency begins.
