November first is the NFL trade deadline and to fortify the running game, the Jacksonville Jaguars should make a move.
The Jacksonville Jaguars defense has carried the team in the first four games. Offensively, the running game needs a boost to take pressure off Jaguar quarterback Blake Bortles. Currently, Jacksonville has 301 rushing yards and 982 passing yards which translates into a 77/23 ratio of pass yards to rushing yards. Making a trade energizes the offense.
General Manager Dave Caldwell has done a good job at building a competitive team but should look to make a positional upgrade.
Where should the Jaguars upgrade on offense?
Running back Chris Ivory missed the first two games and T.J. Yeldon is an average third down back. Denard Robinson is an athlete who plays running back. The running back by committee offense has not produced at all. Upgrading the running back position is a must. Adding a true fullback would help the running backs.
Who should the Jaguars target?
Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers is an unrestricted free agent in 2017. He is an impact player that the Jaguars could use. Off the field antics may hurt him and Jacksonville may not want to take the risk.
Draft after draft, Caldwell is putting good, young talent on the field. In the process of building the Jaguars, there comes a time to go from an average team to a good team to a very good team. After three years, the Jacksonville Jaguars is at the point to raise the level of play.
