4) Growing Talent Around Him

T.J. Yeldon isn’t going to be the only successful player on the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. He’ll be joining a young – but successful – wide receiver group in Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee, and Allen Robinson who are all looking to be healthy and productive in their second years. Also looking for a big 2015 will be quarterback Blake Bortles who is expected to make strides during his sophomore effort. The offensive line has already been talked about, but we can’t stop chatting about just how different that unit will be from the horrendous version it was in 2014. Also along for 2015 and beyond is new pass catching tight end Julius Thomas (AKA the crown jewel of the Jaguars 2015 free agency period) who looks to draw every defender’s attention when he’s lining up.

The Jaguars may be a young team, but there is a host of quality talent sitting ready for the offense. Greg Olson could hardly hope for better young players to build and offense on and Yeldon is going to be an important part of that. We should emphasize that he is a part of a growing group of talent, he isn’t the only one. While not every player the Jaguars have returning is going to successfully grow in 2015, there is enough raw talent and potential on this offense for success to be found in a number of places. Yeldon is expected to be the primary ball carrier, but he isn’t expected to suddenly outshine everyone on offense.

The Jaguars fielded a weak offense in 2014, but with a better offensive line, a couple key additions, and the hope for young players reaching their potential it shouldn’t be tough to envision Yeldon be among a group of successful players for the Jags. This offense is going to be much improved.
