Defensive Line

The interior of the line was the Jaguars’ biggest problem last year. I believe this is going to be addressed through the NFL draft, but don’t be surprised if the team brings in one or two reasonably priced lineman to help with depth.

Marcell Dareus is owed $22 million in 2020. He is priced way too high for this roster. He restructured his contract last off-season because he wanted to stay in Jacksonville. I doubt seriously that’s going to happen again.

Derrick Brown and Javon Kinlaw are the top two players at the position on teams’ draft boards. Both SEC performers have a chance to be drafted in the top 10. Depending on how many quarterbacks are taken in the top half of the first round, Jaguars may luck out and have a chance to decide between the two with their ninth pick in the first round.
