T.J. Yeldon Expected to be Jags Starting RB


Yeldon continues to impress. Like veterans such as tight end Julius Thomas and wide receiver Ace Sanders, running back T.J. Yeldon has impressed early in OTAs. The second-round selection from Alabama is expected to be the starter as a rookie, and he has shown versatility as a runner and receiver – as well as noteworthy quickness as a runner. “He looks really good in short-area change of direction,” Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny said. “He looks really, really good there. It’s, ‘How does a guy move in space? How athletic is he?’ That’s what stands out. With him, he definitely has it.”
