3. Jon Feliciano, 49ers offensive lineman

Donovan Smith isn't the only lineman who will play in Super Bowl 58 that should be on the Jaguars' radar. Veteran Jon Feliciano may also be available in free agency and could help them address the center position, arguably their biggest weakness last year. A fourth-round pick by the then-Oakland Raiders, Feliciano has spent time with the Buffalo Bills, the New York Giants, and now the 49ers.

The former Miami Hurricane was a fringe starter throughout most of his NFL career but he had a banner season in the Bay Area, surrendering no sacks and just 15 total pressures on 478 pass-blocking snaps last season.

Even though Feliciano played both guard spots for the Niners in 2023, he can also line up at center. In Jacksonville, he could either replace Ezra Cleveland or Brandon Scherff if one of them doesn't return in 2024. Alternatively, he could step in at center, and challenge Luke Fortner for the starting job.

Last year, Feliciano signed a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with San Francisco. His asking price will probably go up after being playing on Super Sunday. But given that he didn't play at a high level until 2023, Feliciano may be poised for a regression next season.

This makes clubs hesitant to fork out a considerable amount of cash for him in the open market. In fact, don't be surprised if he flies under the radar in free agency. There may be more enticing options available but he could most definitely be of help in Jacksonville.
