5 Jaguars with a strong chance to make the Pro Bowl in 2022
No. 6 Jaguars player who can make the Pro Bowl – Evan Engram, TE.
Tight end Even Engram might not have gotten as much attention as other Jaguars’ signees but he could have the biggest impact of them all. A first-round pick by the New York Giants in 2017, the Missippi product didn’t really live to expectations during his stint in the Big Apple but he didn’t have the best quarterback situation either.
Keep in mind that Engram hasn’t been necessarily bad with the Giants, averaging 52 receptions per year over the last five seasons and a change of scenery could help him play up to his potential. He was the top tight end in the open market and not wanting to lose him to another club, the Jaguars gave him a one-year, $9 million contract, which will give him the chance to earn a bigger deal in 2023 if he exceeds expectations. Based on the circumstances surrounding him in Jacksonville, there’s a good chance he will.
Tight ends have played a big role in Doug Pederson’s scheme, and the Jaguars’ coaching staff will probably employ tight-end sets often, which means that Engram and Dan Arnold will be on the field at the same time. The former is the most talented of the two and should get a bigger amount of targets.
Back when Pederson was the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, Travis Kelce was a Pro Bowl tight end and the same was true for Zach Ertz during his tenure as the head coach of the Eagles. Now with the Jaguars, Engram could be next in line.
