Bevell will get the most out of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ playmakers.
Even though the Jaguars’ offense ranked 31st in both total yards and points scored this past season, there are some pieces in place for Darrell Bevell to work with. Undrafted free agent James Robinson quickly established himself as one of the best running backs right out of the gate. Bevell made Marshawn Lynch the focal point of Seattle’s offense and he could do the same with the Illinois State standout in Jacksonville.
Also, the Jaguars’ wide receiver corps is in solid shape heading into the 2021 season and Bevell should have enough pieces for his offense. D.J. Chark played at a high level last year even though the team lacked consistent quarterback play. On the other hand, rookie Laviska Shenault Jr. displayed flashes of playmaking prowess and should continue developing. Also, the team’s brass could also re-sign Keelan Cole or bring in a free agent to round out the unit.
More importantly, Bevell will be in charge of developing the quarterback the ‘Jags’ will take with the first overall pick in 2021’s draft, who will most likely be Trevor Lawrence. Regardless, of whom the team ends up choosing, the cupboard won’t be empty.
If the Jaguars can bring in a few difference-makers this offseason and Bevell can work his magic the way he did early in his stint with the ‘Hawks’, the team could have the best offense it has had in years.
