Kyle Bosworth scouting report: Primary strength is special teams

Kyle Bosworth - Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

A view from the Jacksonville Jaguars side of things on what to expect from Kyle Bosworth.

Kyle Bosworth spent the first two seasons of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Bosworth having signed with the New York Giants on Wednesday night, I reached out to Alfie Crow, editor of SB Nation's Jaguars web site, Big Cat Country, for the low down on what Bosworth might bring to the Giants.

Here is what Crow wrote via e-mail:

Bosworth made the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent because of his ability on special teams, and that's really where you'll get something out of him. He was forced into the lineup due to injuries the past few years, but his play as an everydown linebacker leaves a lot to be desired. He's not bad against the run, struggles in coverage, but makes his bones as a special teamer.

The 26-year-old Bosworth was +1.4 vs. the run and -3-3 vs. the pass in 255 defensive snaps in 2012, according to Pro Football Focus. He played mostly on the strong side.According to stats released by the Giants, Bosworth led the Jaguars with 14 special teams tackles.

Bosworth is also apparently an excellent dancer.

'Kudos' to @KevinPDonohue for that.
