NFL coaches like versatility.

The more positions a player can play, the more advantageous he is for the depth chart on game day.

Many players are cross-trained at multiple positions. Those players allow teams to play a more favorable numbers game with roster cutdowns.

Young players are typically molded to play as many spots as possible. However, the results aren't always reassuring.

Last offseason, Jaguars then-rookie linebacker Myles Jack was forced to learn middle and weak-side responsibilities. He was then moved to the strong side in the middle of his rookie season.

He never found a comfort level; his play was impacted by the constant shuffling.

The Jaguars won't make the same mistake with rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook this offseason.

"I think, early on, my philosophy has always been you have to be very careful with young players because you want to build a foundation for them where they’re able to contribute for you," Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone said.

"I think if you take a young player and you try to dual-train him or teach him two positions or you think in the long run that you’re going to be able to help get that player on the field faster, maybe because you don’t feel comfortable about those two positions, but early on in his career he’s not really going to play either of them well enough for you to feel really good about putting him out there. I’d rather make a decision of where to put him, get the foundation, see how he picks that up, and then, once he’s good at that, really start moving him.”
