RTC: Telvin Smith a great scheme fit

Speed, aggression and length is what Jaguars coach Gus Bradley really values at linebacker, which is why rookie Telvin Smith is a great fit in team's defensive scheme, writes Rob Rang of the Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com.

Smith is 6-foot-3 but only 218 pounds -- a size that may have scared other teams from drafting him -- but can flat out run. Rang writes that Smith "attacks the line of scrimmage, showing the burst to slip past blockers as well as the toughness to take them on, when necessary. He diagnoses the action quickly and closes on the ball as explosively as any linebacker in the 2014 draft class."

He also offers some other thoughts on the Jaguars' draft class, including how the team benefited from coaching the Senior Bowl.
