Jacksonville Jaguars full-back Lonnie Pryor says that he is looking forward to his first NFL training camp later this month.

Lonnie Pryor has said that he is feeling "very confident" ahead of his first training camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 23-year-old joined the AFC South side as an undrafted free agent earlier this year.

The fullback told the team's official website: "I'm very confident. I still don't know the playbook like I will. I know the base stuff and mostly all the fullback stuff, and when I'm out there on the field I feel comfortable with what I'm doing.

"If you're a fullback, it's tough. If you were playing running back, you could run the ball and show coaches you can do that. With fullback, you're mainly here just for blocking. Not having pads on, you're really just kind of fitting up. You really can't show your technique.

"Everybody's dream is to be the running back, but as of now, I'm doing what they want me to do and that's play fullback and do things at that position. If they want to throw me in there, I'll be more than happy to do it."

The Jaguars begin their season at home to the Kansas City Chiefs.
