Jaguars Wrap Up Rookie Mini Camp, Blackmon Held Out of Final Practice

The Jaguars wrapped up their rookie mini camp today. Head Coach Mike Mularkey was particularly impressed with how the mix of players functioned together- the camp featured 6 drafted players, 17 undrafted free agents and 27 workout invitees.

“It was outstanding how they came in here prepared and did everything we asked them to do, and did it right. They did everything. Usually, that’s not the case when you bring in 50 brand news guys.” Mularkey said.

Mularkey also said that all 6 of the players the Jaguars drafted stood out at times. “I certainly could tell why we have them in here and why we drafted them,” he said.

The one concern from the camp was that the team held first round draft pick Justin Blackmon out of the final day of practice on sunday due to soreness in his right foot. Mularkey called the move precautionary and they don’t expect the injury to be anything significant.

“We got a good chance to install and be around him, and him be around us,” Mularkey said, “We just thought it would be smart on our part and on his part if we held him out of the drills and had him ready when OTAs start here in about eight days.”
