No. 3 Jaguars player not named Calvin Ridley who's stood out: Parker Washington, WR

When you think of Jaguars wide receivers Zay Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Christian Kirk surely come to find first, and rightfully so. The trio is firmly entrenched at the top of the depth chart and barring injury, they'll all be among Trevor Lawrence's top weapons in 2023.

Having said that, the rest of the receiver's depth chart is still taking shape. Jamal Agnew is guaranteed a roster spot but the coaching staff might be better off deploying him mainly on special teams to maximize his impact as a returner.

With Angew's spot secured, Tim Jones, Kendric Pryor, and Parker Washington could find themselves in a three-way battle for the last slot, unless the Jags decide to carry six receivers in the regular season. And while there's still time before the team's brass sorts out the 53-man roster, Washington may have the inside track to get the nod.

Wide receivers coach Chad Hall says that Washington could excel in pads due to what he can do after the catch, per John Shipley of Sports Illustrated, "Washington has been impressive throughout the first week of camp and there still could be another level to what he can do," Shipley noted.

At 5'10", Washington is better suited to line up in the slot. While he needs to work on his route running, he's got good hands and can create yards after the catch. Given how stacked the Jaguars are at wide receiver, Washington won't probably have a big role in 2023, but if he makes a strong impression in training camp, he will get could get a handful of targets his way every game.
