No. 3 player who could help the Jaguars immediately: Eric Tomlinson, TE

The Jaguars are carrying only three tight ends into the 2023 season: Evan Engram, rookie Brenton Strange and Luke Farrell, a fifth-round pick in the 2021 draft. All things considered, it wasn't a bad decision.

Engram set career highs for receiving yards and catches last year. He gives Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars a reliable target in the middle. On the end of the spectrum lies Farrell. Although he doesn't add much as a pass catcher, he's gained the team's trust thanks to his blocking prowess. He won't get many targets his way in 2023 but he's an asset in run blocking and pass protection. There's also Strange, who excels at gaining yards after the catch but is equally adept at blocking.

Looking at the Jaguars' tight end room heading into the 2023 season, it's easy to see why Gerrit Prince didn't make the 53-man roster. Even though he showed considerable improvement after spending his rookie season in the practice squad, the Jags already have a well-rounded group.

The good news is that the Jags can sign Prince to their practice squad if he clears waivers. But if his claimed off by another club, they could then turn their attention to veteran Eric Tomlinson. The former UTEP Miner comes with lots of experience at the position, having spent time with the New York Jets, the New York Giants, the Baltimore Ravens, the New England Patriots, and most recently the Denver Broncos.

Tomlinson won't put up monster numbers but he would be a solid practice squad candidate who could be promoted to the active roster in case injuries hit the Jags next season.
