Will these offseason bold predictions help the Jacksonville Jaguars take a step in the right direction during the 2020 NFL season?

The Jacksonville Jaguars finally made the move to keep defensive end Yannick Ngakoue on the team, at least for the time being.

The team announced they had placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Ngakoue that will pay him $19.3M for the coming season. This decision gives the front office time to work out a long-term deal, however, Ngakoue has stated through his Twitter account he does not wish to play in black and teal for an extended period of time.

The Jaguars have plenty of decisions to make in the upcoming next few days as free agency becomes a reality on March 18. With holes to fill on both sides of the ball, what can management realistically do to make the roster better without cutting high-priced free agents?

It should be an interesting four days here in Jacksonville.

Can the Jaguars pull the trigger on trade deals that help the roster? Will there be a surprise or two in the NFL Draft? By the way, Jacksonville still has 10 selections in April.

What we do know is things are about to get pretty busy for general manager David Caldwell, director of player personnel Trent Baalke and head coach Doug Marrone. If there is any front office with its feet placed directly over a fire, it has to be the one inside TIAA Bank Field.

Here is a look at three predictions that should take place before the NFL Draft.
