RTC: Cyprien among Kiper's top 30 rookies

Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien was the team's best rookie in 2013, finishing with 98 tackles, six pass breakups, three quarterback pressures, and two forced fumbles.

He also established himself as a physical player and a solid blitzer.

That wasn't good enough for him to make Mel Kiper Jr.'s All-Rookie team, but he did rank among Kiper's top 30 rookies. He was No. 27, ahead of Dallas receiver Terrance Williams, Washington tight end Jordan Reed, New England cornerback Logan Ryan and Buffalo cornerback Nickell Robey. Ryan and Robey tied for 30th.

Williams, Reed and Ryan made the All-Rookie team, but Kiper had Arizona's Tyrann Mathieu and New Orleans' Kenny Vaccaro as his safeties. Hard to argue with those picks.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The Florida Times-Union's coverage team -- beat writers Ryan O'Halloran, Hays Carlyon and Vito Stellino and columnist Gene Frenette -- revisited their preseason predictions on the Jaguars. They were close in spots but off in others, but for the most part had the Jaguars pegged pretty good.

The Jaguars' coaching staff will coach the South team in the Jan. 25 Reese's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. They need to capitalize on the advantage that gives them.
