Jaguars player No. 2 who isn't safe after the draft: Adam Gotsis, DL

Defensive end Adam Gotsis has been a staple of the Jaguars' defensive front since he signed with them in 2022. However, he may be at risk of losing his job in the upcoming months. The front office added Maason Smith, Jordan Jefferson and Myles Cole. Add the fact that Jeremiah Ledbetter signed a one-year deal in March, and Gotsis could be the odd man out.

While the Jaguars are guaranteeing $1 million of Ledbetter's $1.85 million salary for 2024, Gotsis only has $125,000 left in guarantees on the contract he signed last year. If the front office had to choose between the two, that could be the deciding factor.

Make no mistake, Gotsis has carved a niche in the defensive line rotation, appearing in 57 games with 28 four starts the past four years. However, there may no longer be room for him in Jacksonville.

Jaguars player No. 1 who is not safe after the draft: Time Jones, WR

The Jaguars have spare no expense to bolster the wide receiver corps. First, they signed Gabe Davis. They then drafted Brian Thomas Jr., and later inked a few receivers who went undrafted. If that wasn't enough, they're bringing in veteran Jarvis Landry for a tryout in rookie minicamp. It's fair to say the the receiver room is in great shape even after losing Calvin Ridley but a few familiar faces could be affected.

In particular, Zay Jones, and Tim Jones, could be at risk of getting their walking papers. Jones is coming off an injury but if he shows he's healthy, he could ultimately stick around. Jones, on the other hand, has overachieved since he went undrafted in 2021, but there's a chance he's already reached his ceiling and the team's brass could be looking for upgrades.

Jones played a career-best 29 percent of the team's offensive snaps last year but that was out of necessity once the injury bug struck. With better options at hand, the Jaguars may decide it's time to part ways with the former Southern Mississippi Golden Eagle.
