Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Travis Etienne took repetitions from the wide receiver position during the team’s three-day rookie minicamp over the weekend. “At the worst-case scenario, you have a running back with the skillset of a wide receiver,” head coach Urban Meyer explained. “Best-case scenario you’ll have a hybrid player who does both and that’s what we’re hoping to develop out of Travis.” The Jags took Etienne at No. 25 overall in the first round of the draft. He had 48 catches for 588 yards and two touchdowns in his senior season at Clemson and had 7.2 yards per carry in his four years. Jacksonville already has James Robinson in the backfield, but Etienne could be a Swiss Army Knife for this offense alongside pass-catchers D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault Jr. and Marvin Jones.
