It’s partly due to Muma’s improvement as the season has progressed but also because Lloyd, whom the Jaguars selected 27th overall, has struggled since his hot start.

“Consistency [in Muma’s play], but I think, too, it helps, sometimes, in Devin’s case, just coming out of the game and seeing it from the sidelines, seeing a little different perspective,” Pederson said. “Allowing Chad to get valuable reps, it’s a lot like Buster [CB Montaric Brown] playing and getting valuable reps at corner and seeing where Chad is with everything.
