13 Up, 13 Down: Observations, Notes on Each Jaguars' Draft Pick After Rookie Minicamp
The Jaguars have made an emphasis on drafting height/weight/speed players, seemingly acting like a team that wants to add size and speed each time they invest a premium pick. Running back Tank Bigsby checks both of those boxes, showing off the burst and size one would hope to see from a third-round back in person. While it is more noteworthy if a running back doesn't stand out in these practices (which happens more than most think), it was impressive to see Bigsby's size and explosiveness in person. He is cut from a different cloth than any other back on the roster.
"Love Tank, love what he brings as a kind of well-rounded running back. So when you look at, you just throw the stats out, top five fastest running backs in the draft, top five heaviest running backs in the draft, top five yards after contact in the draft. So he's a guy that plays physical, he plays aggressive, he's going to finish runs, he's going to finish runs going forward," Waugh said about Bigsby.
"And then despite that physicality, he's still pretty effective in the passing game. So I think that gives us another guy. I think in this day and age, leaning on one, running back's pretty hard. So the more you have in that room, the better."
