Scouting report: Jaguars' rushing offense

Oct. 28, 2012
 

Here is Pete Dougherty's scouting report on the Jacksonville Jaguars' rushing offense:

The Jaguars run first-year coach Mike Mularkey's offensive system, which goes back to his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers as tight ends coach (1996-2000) and then offensive coordinator (2001-03).

It's loosely based on the Don Coryell passing scheme, though Mularkey likes to complement it with a power running game. The Jaguars rank last in the NFL in scoring and yards, and No. 25 in rushing yards.

They also suffered a huge loss last week when halfback Maurice Jones-Drew sustained a sprained foot that likely will keep him out for several weeks. He's their best player. His replacement is fourth-year pro Rashad Jennings (6-1, 234), who missed 2011 because of a knee injury. Jennings is a decent back with some straight-line speed and power, and for his career is averaging 4.8 yards on 157 carries.

This season he has 90 yards on 34 carries (2.6-yard average). The Jaguars aren't athletic on the offensive line but have a couple of players who play tough and physical. Center Brad Meester (6-3, 302) probably is their best lineman.
