Jaguars OLB Julian Stanford has reportedly "turned some heads" during offseason workouts.
A undrafted free agent in 2012, Stanford will compete with Geno Hayes for a starting job in training camp. The Florida Times-Union considers Stanford and LaRoy Reynolds strong candidates for the 53-man roster.

Jaguars undrafted rookie LB Julian Stanford could be forced to start at strong-side linebacker.
Stanford was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Wagner in May, and the Jags' normal SLB Daryl Smith has missed the first six games of the season with a groin injury. Smith didn't practice on Wednesday and doesn't look set to return for Week 8 against the Packers. Kyle Bosworth has been starting in Smith's place, but Stanford has been a special teams standout and his defensive snaps have increased each week.
