Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew will be running behind a new blocking scheme this year.
Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch plans to install the zone blocking scheme that was popularized by Alex Gibbs when he was the Denver offensive line coach under Shanahan. Fisch learned it when he worked for the Broncos for a year.
The scheme originally featured smaller, quicker linemen, but Fisch said bigger linemen can adjust to it and he believes the Jaguars’ personnel can make the transition to it.
MJD has never played in this scheme, so this is just another red flag for a guy coming off of foot surgery.
