The Jacksonville Jaguars have to address many roster needs this offseason. However, they will be able to fill most if not all of them because of the amount of cap room and draft picks they have. Although the 2021 NFL Draft is still a couple of months away, free agency is around the corner and the team will need to decide how it will spend a league-high $82 million in cap space.

The Jaguars’ biggest need is quarterback, but they will take care of that with the first overall pick in the draft, which they will most likely use to take Trevor Lawrence. Next on their list is left tackle, defensive end, defensive tackle, cornerback, and safety. While Jacksonville won’t be able to sign every big-name free agent in the open market, they could certainly add a couple.

The Jags’ offense certainly needs work but they have the resources to target left tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Allen Robinson and Kelly Golladay. On the other hand, their defense ranked 31st in both points allowed and totals yards and needs help in all three levels. Benjamin Solak of the Draft Network recently wrote about three mid-level defensive players the Jaguars should target this offseason. Let’s take a look at all of them.
