The focus is on the rookies, but there was other Jaguars news Saturday, too.

He has to earn the right to be the team's workhorse, Marrone said Saturday. Considering both had track records with the position, it was nearly a given that the Jaguars would look to incorporate a fullback into their offense heading forward - especially considering the team's struggles a year ago while using mostly singleback formations.

All seven draft picks, 16 undrafted free agents, 39 tryout players and two first-year players wore helmets, but no pads, for practices that are closed to fans and media and will conclude on Sunday. "There are certain things that I think you guys are able to go see there, as far as his elbow and his arm, it's much improved". "I like the things he did". Marrone also said that he liked what he had seen from Blake Bortles since the quarterback returned from working with a quarterbacking coach.

"If we throw 150 [times], he'll be better". "If we throw 200 he'll be better - 250, he'll be better. We're trying to build his arm strength so the more he throws, the better he'll be".

"The more he throws the better he'll be".

34 overall on April 28 and general manager Dave Caldwell declared the left tackle position open for competition, clearly a shot at Albert that his absence will be unsuccessful contractually and cost him a starting spot. He was acquired from the Miami Dolphins in March in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round pick.

"Both of us come from programs where losing is not really part of our culture", said Robinson, who started all 44 games of his career at the University of Alabama and was a first-team All-America as a senior.

Marrone was asked if he thinks Albert simply does not want to play.

United States hands Arctic Council gavel over to Finland
President Donald Trump pledged to withdraw the U.S. from the 2015 Paris climate accord but has yet to make a formal decision. The document, which calls for action to blunt the thawing of the Arctic, was dubbed the Fairbanks Declaration.

Marrone was asked if that was frustrating.

Marrone said his emotion is "actually more hurt than mad", because he feels disrespected by Albert, according to the Florida Times-Union.

"You just want to know where everyone is at and that's all I was expecting. I think Dede's fast, he competes", Fournette said.

"Whether we get there or not, a lot of that is going to be what the player earns". I've had a player on the [NFL's Franchise] Tag, I've had a player on a couple of things: 'Hey, coach, I'm on the tag. I'm not signing the tag, ...

"I'm not going to automatically say that", Fournette said. That's the business side. "You just want the whole morale of the team to change". I can't tell you what's true or not true, and I can't speak for Branden.

"I know that's something me and Leonard talked about as soon as - I know I talked to him right after the draft", Robinson said.

"I have to still learn from the vets", Fournette said, per DiRocco. "I really don't. I don't care if you were drafted".
