Jacksonville Jaguars: 3 way-too-early needs in 2022
Depending on whom you ask, the Jaguars have either done a good job of acquiring talent this offseason or made several questionable moves. What nobody can argue is that they have made an effort to turn things around after going 1-15 last season.
Instead of keeping Doug Marrone as the head coach, which was a possibility, they brought in Urban Meyer to oversee a rebuild. They also gave former general manager Trent Baalke the boot and promoted Trent Baalke to take his place.
Both Meyer and Baalke made good use of all cap space the Jags had and added depth and a few playmakers in free agency. They also took advantage of their surplus of draft picks and came out of this year’s selection meeting with several building blocks, including a potential franchise quarterback in Trevor Lawrence.
Although the team’s brass is probably focused on fine-tuning the roster ahead of training camp, it’s never too late to start preparing for next year. After all, they surely had 2022 in mind when making some of the moves this offseason.
The Jags currently have depth at several positional groups but that may no longer be the case next year. They need to groom players for the future for potential starting and backup roles. On the bright side, Jacksonville will still have ample cap space and enough draft picks to address any potential roster holes.
Here are three way-too-early-needs for the Jaguars next offseason.
