It will be part defensive end, part outside linebacker and all pass rusher.
Which players fill that role for the Jaguars this year will be determined.
But their position will be called Leo.
Since coach Gus Bradley was hired last month, the guessing game has begun about what type of personal stamp he’ll add to what he picked up working for Monte Kiffin in Tampa Bay and Pete Carroll in Seattle.
Bradley is already committed to bringing the Leo position to the Jaguars defense in an effort to spark a pass rush that was last in the NFL in 2012 (20 sacks).
“Not that the last scheme wasn’t any good, but we have to move guys around and manufacture a pass rush,” said defensive line coach Todd Wash, who followed Bradley from Seattle.
A Leo is in Jaguars' future
