The Jacksonville Jaguars have put together a well-rounded roster and general manager Trent Baalke deserves plenty of credit. Having inherited a team devoid of talent in 2021, Baalke got to work right off the bat and has bolstered pretty much every position group.

Heading into the 2023 season, the Jags don't have any glaring weaknesses but depth could be an issue at a handful of position groups, including the following four:

No. 4 position where the Jaguars could have depth concerns: Defensive line

The Jaguars have beefed up their defensive line over the last two years. After locking up Roy Robertson-Harris in 2021, they signed defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi last year. On top of that, they gave 2020 third-round pick DaVon Hamilton a three-year deal worth $34 million this past April to ensure they have continuity in the trenches next season.

Fatukasi, Hamilton, and Robertson-Harris are slated to start and veteran Adam Gotsis, who returned on a one-year deal, should also be part of the defensive line rotation. But if any of them go down, the Jaguars will probably get fidgety, as most of the options behind them are either rookies or developmental projects.

The team's brass signed Henry Mondeaux and Michael Dogbe in free agency. Both of them have upside but need to prove they can be counted on. Similarly, sophomore De'Shaan Dixon is making the transition to the interior defensive line after lining up at outside linebacker last year. There's also rookie Tyler Lacy, who could become an important piece of the rotation but will probably need time to get acclimated to the pros.

The Jaguars are counting on all these players to develop but if they don't, their defensive line depth could leave a bit to be desired in 2023.
