Jacksonville Jaguars: Best and worst rookies heading into Week 13
The Jacksonville Jaguars have seen their rookie class take the field often.
It wasn’t surprising to see the Jacksonville Jaguars part ways with general manager David Caldwell. After all, he constantly failed to draft and sign enough playmakers to field a competitive football team.
Even though Caldwell chose key contributors such as linebacker Myles Jack and center Brandon Linder, he had a bad success rate in the draft in his tenure in Jacksonville. He passed up the opportunity to draft players such as quarterback Patrick Mahomes and left tackle Lane Johnson in favor of flops such as Blake Bortles and Jake Joeckel. However, Caldwell might’ve acquired a slew of playmakers in his last draft at the helm of the Jaguars’ front office.
Before he was placed on the Injured Reserved list, cornerback C.J. Henderson had seized one of the team’s starting jobs. The same is true for defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton and safety Daniel Thomas. Both had joined the starting lineup before being placed on the reserve list.
Had the trio not been hampered by injuries, they would likely play a big role for the team right now. On the bright side, they aren’t the only Jaguars rookies that displayed flashes of talent. Here’s a list of the best and the worst Jaguars’ rookies heading into Week 13.
