Could these two players impress the Jacksonville Jaguars’ new regime?

4. Tyler Davis, tight end – The Jaguars haven’t really addressed the tight end position this offseason. Although they brought back veteran James O’Shaughnessy and signed Chris Manhertz, the unit looks thin on paper. Tim Tebow could make the roster but it’s doubtful he will be more than a complementary piece. Also, the organization traded Josh Oliver before 2021’s draft.

The Jaguars’ less-than-ideal situation at tight end could help Tyler Davis make the roster. A 2020 sixth-round selection, the Georgia Tech product dressed up for eight games last season. He hardly ever saw the field in 2020 and when he did, it was on special teams. He played four percent of the team’s total snaps on offense and was targeted twice but didn’t register a single reception. He could be on his way out unless he woes the new coaching staff.

3. Terry Godwin, wide receiver – The Jags has a crowded wide receiver corps and it looks like they are set at the position. DJ. Chark Jr., Marvin Jones Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr., are the team’s top three wideouts. Free-agent acquisitions Jamal Agnew and Phillip Dorsett are next. Then, there’s Jalen Camp, an enticing project with outstanding physical traits.

Wide receiver Terry Godwin, a 2020 seventh-round pick, will have a steep hill to climb in training camp. Last season, he hauled in three receptions for 32 yards and played 12 special teams snaps. He must show his worth if he wants to remain in Jacksonville.
