NFL RUSH
Team Report Cards: Jaguars Need Some Help

Jacksonville Jaguars

2012 Record:  2-14

Grade: F

 

The Jaguars have a lot in common with the Chiefs, which shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Bad teams stink alike.  But with a high draft position and a few good things to build on, this team has hope for a better tomorrow.

 

The Good:

 

  • - WRs Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon emerged as potential solid duo.
  •  
  • - Maurice Jones-Drew will be back and should be fresh after a season that most fans hope to forget.
  •  
  • - They made a change to their logo.  A fiercer logo might mean fiercer players on the field… right?

 

 

The Bad:

 

  • - 30th rated total offense and 30th in rated defense
  •  
  • - Starting QB Blaine Gabbert has not excited anyone.
  •  
  • - The offensive line allowed 50 sacks, third most in the NFL.

 

 

The Future:

 

  • -Draft: QB Geno Smith or OT Luke Joeckel look good for them at #2. Basically whomever the Chiefs don’t take. In the later rounds, look for them to shore up the RB depth and try to find a lot of guys to shore up holes on defense.
  •  
  • -Free Agent Targets: Take your pick.  They will need to make a run at defensive guys like DE Osi Umenyiora and DE Cliff Avril while also searching for help on the O-line from someone like Jake Long.
  •  
  • -Trade: They need a name that people can be excited by.  Looking for a guy like CB Charles Woodson or even QB Alex Smith would be a great move to give this team some relevance.

 

Which position is the Jaguars greatest need?

    My suggestion to the Jaguars is to draft defensive this year since there aren't many good QB's in the draft this year, and then draft a QB next year. If the Jaguars did draft a QB, I would suggest Matt Barkley.
