Several reports say that the Jaguars have been lining up in the "Wildcat" formation at practice…
Signed, Sealed, and Delivered
"When you hear about tight end, Zach Miller, he's kind of a Wildcat quarterback," Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said. "I heard he described himself as a poor man's Tim Tebow."
Although it's likely that the Jaguars won't try the "Wildcat" formation for much more than a few snaps per game, if even that much, Miller could be a legitimate contributor in the passing game. In his only collegiate game at tight end, Miller caught five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Cactus Bowl, an all-star game for Division II athletes.
Anytime a player is asked to change positions in the pros, it is certainly considered a project. The Jaguars took on a similar type of challenge when they converted Matt Jones from quarterback to wide receiver. The difference in this case is that the expectations for Miller will be that of a typical sixth-round pick and not a first-round pick.
The Jaguars liked Zach Miller enough in camp to jettison tight ends Charles Davis and George Wrighster, and they made it their first priority to get him the sixth-round pick signed to a contract.
