Former UConn DB looks to build off rookie season

A year ago Dwayne Gratz got a baptism by fire into the NFL while dealing with a couple of ankle injuries forcing him to miss six games during his rookie season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Gratz, the first of the five UConn players taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, told the Florida Times-Union that he is looking to improve his footwork as well making better use of his hands in his second season.

Gratz started eight games as a rookie as he finished with 32 tackles and two interceptions. Jacksonville was 2-0 in games when Gratz had an interception and 2-6 in games when he failed to come up with a turnover.
