The 21-year-old Yeldon, who ran for 979 yards and 11 touchdowns at Alabama last season, said he believes he can be the workhorse back the Jaguars drafted him to be, but it may take some time.
"I feel like I can be a three-down back, but I’m just out there trying to do what I do," he said. "I’m still learning, so I’m not trying to say I’m a three-down back or anything right now. I’ve done it before at Alabama, but it’s a different league now, so we will see."
While Yeldon is perhaps being overly critical of himself and his chances, he still has all of training camp to cement his status both in his eyes and those of the Jacksonville coaching staff.
