    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky While the Jaguars have struggled in many areas en route to an 0-2 start, their bright spot's been pretty obvious and has arrived courtesy of an undrafted rookie free agent.
    Jacksonville ranks in the top four in the NFL in both kick and punt return average.
    They're average drive start is past the 30-yard line.
    And the electrifying Brian Witherspoon is third in the league in kickoff returns (34.8) and tied for fourth in punt returns (17.7).
    The return games were not a strength last season, and Jack Del Rio wasn't reluctant to give the return jobs to Witherspoon over the veteran, Dennis Northcutt and Maurice Jones-Drew, who held them last year.
    He's looking very smart for doing so thus far.
