John Oehser compiled a list of 5 guys that need to continue developing for the Jaguars.
“He not only started all 16 games, he did so playing through nagging injuries. Those around the Jaguars say he showed character and leadership by not discussing or acknowledging the issues much – and they, too, said he earned respect by his on- and off-field approach.
Alualu did everything that could have been expected of a Top-10 drafted-rookie, and showed he has the potential to be a franchise-level player. For the Jaguars to improve defensively next season, he needs to continue that development and move toward being one of the NFL’s best defensive tackles.”
