“l get vocal if necessary. I have no problem speaking up. But I feel like my position going into Year 4 is I need to be the staple where if someone doesn’t know something I can be the encyclopedia.”
Jack certainly has been a leader with his performance and is coming off a solid 2018 season where he racked up 102 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 1 interception.

Jaguars’ Nick Foles Believes Leonard Fournette is Dual Threat
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles is encouraged about what he has seen from running back Leonard Fournette in the passing game, believing that he can have a big season in 2019.
After a rough 2018 season, that included heavy criticism, Leonard could use some positive reinforcement, and Foles, his new quarterback, is giving him just that.
“That’s a threat,” Foles said,according to Jaguars.com. “If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense.
“I’ve been blessed to play with a lot of great running backs in my career that have made me look good because what they can do and there is nothing better than throwing the ball to a running back and letting him miss a guy. That’s what I love about backs. If you can catch, you can do so many different things. You can have a lot of fun out there.”
