JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Myles Jack is switching positions -- well, sort of.After working solely at middle linebacker during training camp and in three exhibitions, Jack made the move to weak-side linebacker this week and will play there in the preseason finale Thursday night at Atlanta.It actually kind of simplifies my world a little bit more, which is cool, Jack said Tuesday.The Jaguars feel as if Jack has a good understanding of middle linebacker, where he has played behind veteran Paul Posluszny, and want to expand his knowledge of the defense and make him more versatile heading into the season.The only problem: Jack has just three days to figure it out.Its going to be an interesting challenge, but he can handle it, Posluszny said.Jacksonville believes Jack is the franchises future middle linebacker.But since Posluszny has been better than anticipated in pass coverage during camp, the team wants to find other potential ways of getting Jack on the field.

Its all Ive been honed in on, Jack said. So now Ive got to adapt and figure out the (weak-side) spot. Its not much of a difference. Ill just be slid over. But Ive just got to open up my mind and see the bigger picture.Jacks versatility was one of his most notable attributes in college. He played linebacker and running back as a freshman, and the Jaguars believe hes capable of making big plays in the running and passing games.Now, he gets to try to do it from a slightly different position.Theres a lot of carry-over, things he can transfer from one position to the next, Posluszny said.
