|Denard Robinson remains third on the depth chart trying to carve out a role on a team needing playmakers. Recently, general manager Dave Caldwell shed light on a hand injury that Robinson has been dealing with since playing for Michigan. Nerve damage to his throwing hand made it hard to keep his hand opened fully. Through rehabilitation he has been able to regain flexibility and comes into his second training camp with renewed confidence. The Jaguars drafted Robinson in the second round a year ago knowing about the nerve damage, so they obviously believe he is capable of developing into a productive piece of the offense. A strong camp would allow Jacksonville's coaching staff to use Robinson's athleticism in screens and option packages, yet his fantasy value remains limited until he proves himself.

Gerhart to get "bulk of the carries"; D-Rob enjoying great OTAs

|Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell likes Toby Gerhart's size (6-0, 231 pounds), "excellent hands" and other virtues in the passing game. "Knowing he was going to have to pass protect, catch the ball out of the backfield and get tough yardage, he was a really good fit for us. ... He'll get the bulk of the carries and he'll be a great asset," added Caldwell.
Caldwell is excited by the growth of Denard Robinson, the Jags' third-down back who fought through nerve damage in his throwing hand last year. "Denard (has) had the best offseason of anyone," Jaguars radio analyst Jeff Lagemen said. (USA Today)|
FFToday's Take: At his current late-fourth round ADP, Gerhart is shaping up to be an incredible value in drafts this summer. One of the league's few good bets for 300-plus carries and 40-plus receptions, the Jaguars have made it known they would like nothing more than for Gerhart to become "Beast Mode" South. As for Robinson, he is a dynamic big-play runner and stands a good chance of becoming Gerhart's direct backup if he can continue to evolve from college quarterback to running back.
