The level of difficulty increases for Jacksonville Jaguars here.

10. Joe Burrow – As a team, the Phins are better than the Cincinnati Bengals. Nevertheless, the latter drafted the better quarterback in 2020. Joe Burrow performed at a high level last season but Cincy needs to do a better job of protecting their sophomore signal-caller.

9. Jimmy Garapolo – Although Jimmy Garappolo isn’t bad, he hasn’t been great either and one big reason is that he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He’s only played a full season once in his eight-year career, and there’s a good chance he will miss time in 2021.

8. Kyler Murray – The first overall pick in 2019, Kyler Murray won the Offensive Rookie of the Year but had an uneventful sophomore campaign. He needs to bounce back, but it’s uncertain whether he will or has already reached a plateau. At this point, it’s a coinflip.

7. Matt Ryan – If the Jaguars were facing Matt Ryan in his prime, he would be higher on this list. On the bright side, the Atlanta Falcons quarterback has a couple of top-notch wide receivers at his disposal in Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones. Although this won’t be an extremely difficult matchup for the Jaguars, Ryan isn’t someone you should take lightly.

6. Deshaun Watson – How can Deshaun Watson rank so low? Simple, ‘people in league’ circles believe he might not play in 2021, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. The Texans signed Tyrod Taylor, who is a serviceable quarterback, but the difference between and Watson is significant. The Jaguars need to capitalize on the opportunity.
