The Jacksonville Jaguars were relatively quiet in free agency but made up for it by coming out of the 2023 NFL Draft with 13 players. On top of that, they later added several players who could end up sticking around on the 53-man roster or the practice squad, where they can keep honing their skills.

Some of the newcomers saw their stock rose in offseason workouts and a few of them compete for a job in training camp. Having said that, there won't be that many open spots and most of the depth chart seems to be set. With that in mind, here's how the 53-man roster could look to begin the 2023 season.

Here's one of the most meaningful changes the Jaguars made in the offseason. Following a productive first year in Jacksonville, it looked like Riley Patterson was going to handle kicking duties in 2023.

However, things changed when Brandon McManus was available following his release by the Denver Broncos. The team's brass wasted no time and jumped at the opportunity to sign the veteran kicker and ended up trading Patterson to the Detroit Lions to make room for McManus.

While Patterson was huge in the Jags' win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Super Wild Card Weekend, he had limited leg strength, which forced Jacksonville to go for it on fourth down more than they would've liked to last year. Distance when attempting long field goals will no longer be an issue with McManus in the fold. The other two core contributors for the Jaguars on special teams, Ross Matiscik and Logan Cooke are back.
