D.J. Hayden joined the Jacksonville Jaguars during their down Year in 2018.
The expectations of the slot corner, but don’t decrease . “I feel as if we are likely to be the best defense in the league, ” I can not wait,” Hayden told Gene Frenette of The Florida Times-Union. “I understand we’ll have some fresh facesbut I feel like this is going to be a terrific defense regardless of who’s out there.”
Hayden is not the only person who endeavors big things for the Jags’ D.Despite linebacker Telvin Smith stepping away for the summer season, the Jags still boast playmakers on all 3 levels. The accession of first-round pick Josh Allen to a front which possesses Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue should create the Jags’ pass rush threatening on QBs.
Injuries to Hayden were part of the rationale the Jags’ struggled last season. The slot corner, signed to assist replace Aaron Colvin, played only 10 games, along with the Jags struggled without him. Hayden, who has struggled throughout his career with both health and production, played with the best football of his career down the stretch last year — for circumstance, Professional Football Focus gave Hayden a 74.8 tier last year, undoubtedly the best he has generated from PFF and 25th general among CBs.
In Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye and Hayden, the Jags boast a good trio, together with the two outside corners owning the upside to be the very best tandem in the NFL if they stay healthy and return to form. The safety spot stays as a question mark heading into 2019. Youngsters Ronnie Harrison and Jarrod Wilson (combined 10 NFL starts) are slated to begin in the two safety spots.
Hayden believes the Jags secondary will get back to their ball-hawking ways this year.
“All that good things — getting turnovers, sacks and making big plays I feel as if we’ll do that,” Hayden said. “I’m completely 100 percent comfortable with what we are doing and our safeties. I feel we’ll be the best secondary in the league.”
Pretending to be the best at the summer is easy. Proving it is the part that is difficult.
