Trevor Lawrence is ready to lead the Jacksonville Jaguars offense.

Here’s how the Jaguars’ offense looks. Arguably, the biggest surprise is that the team’s brass decided to carry just two quarterbacks and three tight ends.

Quarterbacks (2): Trevor Lawrence and C.J. Beathard.

The Jaguars chose to keep just two quarterbacks into the season. Jake Luton is a prime candidate to land on the practice squad but they could also take a dive into the waiver wire.

Running backs (3): James Robinson, Carlos Hyde, and Dare Ogunbowale. 

With rookie Travis Etienne out for the year, Dare Ogunbowale had an easier path to make the team. The team could Devine Ozigbo to the practice squad and promote him to the active roster in case they need an extra running back.

Wide receivers (5): DJ Chark Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr., Marvin Jones Jr., Jamal Agnew, Tavon Austin.

The Jaguars bet on younger wide receivers with bigger upside and released Phillip Dorsett. On the other hand, it was kind of surprising to see them waive sophomore Collin Johnson. Jacksonville could bring him and/or Laquon Treadwell back on the practice squad.

Tight ends (3): Chris Manhertz, James O’Shaughnessy, Luke Farrell.

Of all the tight ends on the Jaguars’ roster, James O’Shaughnessy arguably had the best offseason. Chris Manhertz will still see the field often in short-yardage and red-zone situations. Also, rookie Luke Farrell could develop into a solid starter. The Jaguars may look into the waiver wire for upgrades at tight end.

Offensive line (9): Cam Robinson, Andrew Norwell, Jawaan Taylor, Brandon Linder, Tyler Shatley, A.J. Cann, Ben Bartch, Walker Little, Will Richardson.

The Jaguars brought back all their offensive line starters from 2020. They expect the group to improve. If either Robinson or Taylor struggle, Little could take their place in the lineup but other than that, the unit didn’t undergo many changes.
