Lesser-known Jaguars who must stand out in training camp - Part 1

Luke Farrell. TE

General manager Trent Baalke told the media on the days preceding the draft that the team felt comfortable with their tight end room and didn't think it was absolutely necessary to add to the group. On the other hand, he said that if there was a chance, they would bolster the position. Ultimately, they took Brenton Strange in Round 2 and later signed athletic sensation Sammis Reyes during offseason workouts.

Evan Engram is the unquestionable starter and Strange will get a workload that reflects his growth in his rookie season. Luke Farrell could be the No. 3 tight end on the depth chart but Reyes, and Gerrit Prince, who spent his first NFL season in the practice squad, could challenge him for the spot.

Farrell could have the edge by virtue of being the veteran but Prince and Reyes may have a higher ceiling. Working in Farrell's favor is that the coaching staff seems to be high on him but he shouldn't take his roster spot for granted.

Snoop Conner, RB

Rookie Snoop Conner appeared to have a good shot at being RB3 on the depth chart last year but the arrival of JaMycal Hasty before the start of the season tumbled him and become a healthy scratch until James Robinson was traded to the New York Jets. But even after Robinson was traded, Conner hardly ever saw the field, toting the rock a paltry 12 times for 42 yards with one touchdown last year.

Heading into the 2023 season, Conner could face an uphill battle to make the team. This is due to the arrival of D'Ernest Johnson in free agency and the Jaguars drafting Tank Bagsby in Round 3. Johnson was efficient in a limited role for the Cleveland Browns the last four years while Bigsby has the potential to be a three-down starter in the NFL. Unless Conner shows out in the upcoming weeks, he'll have a hard time sticking around.
