    Following the season-ending loss of DE Reggie Hayward, the Jaguars will use a 3-4 defense with Atiyyah Ellison at defensive end.
    John Henderson will be the other end and impressive rookie Terrance Knighton will be the full-time nose tackle. Quentin Groves and Derrick Harvey are the outside linebackers. The Jags used a lot of this alignment in Week 1 against the Colts, consistently stuffing Joseph Addai and Donald Brown.

    I don't think so, the Jags still have a big 335-lb monster in John Henderson and they drafted Groves and Harvey who can play OLB so they might be able to pull it off, however, I think they need good DEs too pull the whole scheme off.
