1. Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, wide receiver

Even though the Jags have invested significant resources in the wide receiver corps the past two years, they'll need to keep bolstering the group in 2024. Calvin Ridley is coming off a 1,000-yard season but he's set to become a free agent in March. The Jags are better off keeping him but that means they'll have to give up a second-round pick as a part of the deal they made with the Atlanta Falcons to trade for him in 2022.

Similarly, Zay Jones could be a cap casualty this offseason. He's set to count $10.7 million against the cap but Jacksonville can free up $4.1 million in cap space if they move on from him. If they move on from either Jones or Ridley, using a first-round pick on a receiver becomes a real scenario. Keon Coleman and Rome Odunze are two names to keep an eye on. Heck, the Jags should be watching Javon Baker (UCF) and Brenden Rice (USC) in the Senior Bowl.

Having said that, the Jaguars would also benefit from adding depth in the later rounds. Tim Jones has been unremarkable the past two years, and Parker Washington, a sixth-round pick in last year's draft, almost exclusively lines up in the slot. Also, the receiver room could most definitely benefit from competition. One prospect to consider on Day 3 who will suit up for the Senior Bowl is Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint of Georgia.

At 6'1 and 195 pounds, Rosemy-Jacksaint doesn't have top-notch speed but he has superb body control and hands, having not dropped a catch the past two years. He needs to work on his route-running but knows how to create separation and is physical enough to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage.

Rosemy-Jacksaint is what you would consider a work in progress, but he's one worth taking a flyer on in the fifth or sixth round of the draft.
