2. Maurice Jones-Drew

The Jaguars' second-leading rusher of all-time also checks in at no. 2 on this list, which only makes sense. Back in 2006, Jacksonville selected Maurice Jones-Drew out of UCLA in the second round, coming in at pick no. 60 overall.

Jones-Drew would go on to share the load with Fred Taylor for a couple of seasons before taking over as the team's lead back. Once he was given the job, Jones-Drew stepped right in and continued the legacy laid before him.

He would go on to top the 1,000-yard mark three times, earning Pro Bowl honors in each of those seasons. His best season came in 2011 when Jones-Drew led the league in rushing with 1,606 yards. He also added 43 receptions for 374 yards, giving him close to 2,000 total yards on the season. That year, Jones-Drew was not only voted to the Pro Bowl but was made an All Pro.

He'd spend the final year of his career with the Oakland Raiders, where he served as a reserve and did not get a whole lot of action. But, Jones-Drew's lasting imprint on the Jaguars will be felt for a long time, as he ran for 8,071 yards during his tenure.
