Jacksonville Jaguars: Preseason 53-man roster prediction
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense should score more often in 2021.
The Jaguars should have no trouble scoring points more often in 2021. Here’s how their offense could look when they face off against the Houston Texans in the season opener.
Quarterback (3): Trevor Lawrence, Gardner Minshew, and C.J. Beatheard
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jaguars may be better off carrying three quarterbacks into the season.
Running back (4): Travis Etienne, Carlos Hyde, James Robinson, and Dare Ogunbowale.
Travis Etienne is proving the Jaguars made the right decision when they made him the 25th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s had an outstanding training camp and is set to make an instant impact. James Robinson has also shined, so there’s a good chance he will still be the number-one running back in Jacksonville in 2021.
Wide receivers (6): Laquon Treadwell, DJ Chark Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr., Marvin Jones Jr., Collin Johnson, Jamal Agnew
Here’s a potential surprise. Laquon Treadwell has raised a few eyebrows and has been living up to his first-round potential ever since signing with the Jaguars. He has a legitimate shot to make the team after failed tenures with the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings.
DJ Chark will be out for a few weeks after undergoing finger surgery but should be back for the season opener against the Houston Texans. Jalen Camp has also made plays in training camp but he will most likely be a victim of the numbers game.
Tight ends (4): Chris Manhertz, Ben Ellefson, James O’Shaughnessy, Luke Farrell
Earlier this year, it looked like Tim Tebow was a lock to make the team. However, he hit a few speed bumps once the pads went on. Also, Ben Ellefson has improved a lot and has garnered positive reviews throughout the offseason.
Offensive linemen (9): Jawaan Taylor, Cam Robinson, Brandon Linder, Andrew Norwell, Tyler Shatley, A.J. Cann, Walker Little, Will Richardson, Ben Bartch
With the lone addition of Walker Little, the Jaguars’ offensive line will be nearly identical to its 2020 counterpart. Robinson and Taylor are having a solid training camp but the Stanford product could take their place in the lineup if either one struggles.
