Questions Marks All Around the Jags Wide Out Core

Mike Sims-Waker leads the Jags wide outs this season, but after there are a ton of question marks. The next three guys that will compete for a shot to catch passes from David Garrard are Jarett Dillard, Mike Thomas and Tiquan Underwood.

“There is going to be some jockeying that will take place,” coach Jack Del Rio said. “We’ve got a bunch of guys that will get an opportunity and we’ll let that play out in camp.”

The team is going to need this position to step up if they are going to be competitive at all in the AFC South. Thomas may have the upper hand as camp starts, as he had 48 catches a season ago.

“It’s a good group of guys,” WR coach Todd Monken said. “They all have their strengths and they’re fun to coach. They’re eager. … It’s so much easier when you’ve got guys coming in wide awake in the morning and ready to play.”

If the team can get something out of not only Sims-Walker but one or two of the other wide outs, it will mean that much more for an offense that will pound the rock often with Maurice Jones-Drew.
