There are many reasons why Urban Meyer’s tenure as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars was a disaster and one of them was his inability to focus on what was really important. If had spent more time making sure his players were in a position to succeed instead of getting inappropriate at nightclubs and kicking Josh Lambo, maybe, just maybe he would still have a job.

Another reason Meyer flopped in Jacksonville was his failure to develop Trevor Lawrence. Sure, the former Clemson Tiger had his fair share of struggles as a rookie but he also had bright moments despite the fact that he didn’t have a good arsenal of weapons at his disposal. On the bright side, the Jaguars have more than enough resources to surround him with more talent this offseason and also make upgrades to both sides on the ball.

Moreover, the Jaguars will get several players back from injuries and all of them should contribute in some way or another in 2022. In particular, these four Jaguars should rebound after getting hurt last season.

No. 1 Jaguars player that should bounce back in 2022 – Dylan Moses, LB.

You could make the case that linebacker Dylan Moses can’t really bounce back since he hasn’t played a snap in the NFL and spent his rookie campaign on the Non-Football Injury list recovering from a torn ACL he suffered back at Alabama.

After playing through injuries in 2020, Moses underwent knee surgery last February. He went undrafted and signed with the Jags. Had he been healthy, there’s a chance he could have gone as high as the second round. The Alabama product was able to return to practice in late December, so he’s trending towards being 100 percent or close to it this offseason. If he has a solid training camp, he could work his way up the depth chart and become a darkhorse candidate to start for the Jaguars in 2022.
