No. 3 Jaguars player barely hanging onto a roster spot: Kendric Pryor, WR

Undrafted free agents have a steep hill to climb to make the 53-man roster. Against all odds, wide receiver Kendric Pryor did it last year. It wasn't with the team he originally joined, the Cincinnati Bengals, but with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who claimed him off waivers just before the 2022 season began.

Still, it was a noteworthy achievement for Pryor, even if he was a healthy scratch throughout the year. Following the end of the 2022 campaign, it looked like the Illinois native could make strides and earn a bigger role in his sophomore campaign. But that hasn't been the case.

Instead, Jacob Harris, rookie Parker Washington, Elijah Cooks, and Seth Williams all seem to have better odds of sticking around. When you take into account that Calvin Ridley, Zay Jones, Jamal Agnew, and Christian Kirk have a roster spot secured, Pryor might be a victim of the numbers game.

And that's the thing, the Jaguars have a wide array of options and if they weren't stacked at wide receiver, Pryor would have a better chance of making the roster. Now, this isn't the end of the road for him. He will probably get his walking papers in the upcoming days. If he does, he can either be claimed off waivers or signed to the Jaguars practice squad. Either scenario would be good for him.

If Pryor latches onto a another team, he would then have a roster spot secured. On the other hand, if he lands in the Jacksonville practice squad, he can continue working on his craft and get promoted to the active roster in case injuries hit the wide receiver corps.
