The Jacksonville Jaguars preseason schedule has been released by the NFL and while the games still don’t mean anything, it looks pretty good for the Jags.
The Jaguars playing the following teams in the following order:
- Pittsburgh Steelers (August 13-17)
- New York Giants (August 20-24)
- Detroit Lions (August 27-30)
- Washington Redskins (September 3-4)
That’s a decent mix of teams with playoff caliber talent and some teams that are…well less than playoff caliber. The Jaguars beat the New York Giants last season in one of their just three wins from 2014.
The important thing for the Jaguars to look for during the 2015 NFL Preseason is progression from Blake Bortles against first team defenses (for however limited series he gets) and the progression of other key role players, especially at wide receiver, defensive back, and linebacker. The Jaguars struggled to get competent play from a number of positions last season but they’ve loaded up with starters and role players so far this offseason and that will continue during the 2015 NFL Draft. Those players will have to prove their worth during the preseason.
Another area to look at is the offensive line. The unit is currently quite thin and the Jaguars will have to see how backup tackles and others can perform. For a unit that was essentially a revolving door last season, it’s important for the team to be able to evaluate its depth.
Last season we were blessed to see the early emergence of wide receiver Allen Hurns and quarterback Blake Bortles during the preseason.
