1. The Jaguars will have some tough decisions to make at WR

If you thought the bout against the Dolphins would bring some clarity to the receiver depth chart, you were in for a rude awakening. It's true that Kevin Austin Jr., Kendric Pryor and Parker Washington didn't make a strong impression.

However, Tim Jones, Jacob Harris, Elijah Cooks, and Seth Williams all take advantage of their respective opportunities and if they don't get a roster spot, it won't be for a lack of effort.

Jones had yet another highlight reel for the second straight week. Against the Detroit Lions, he had one for 48 yards but because he wanted to outdo himself, he reeled in one that went for 74 yards in the finale. On top of his blocking prowess, this pair of long receptions should increase his odds of making the 53-man roster in 2023.

On the other hand, Williams, who had a strong training camp, also had two catches for 50 yards. One of them will be in the loop the next couple of days.

Elijah Cooks, for his part, didn't have a huge catch this time but he did haul in three receptions for 35 yards on four targets. An undrafted free agent out of San Jose State earlier this year, Cooks should feel good about his chances of earning a roster spot in 2023.

Having said that, it's hard to tell who will ultimately make the cut. Simply, the Jaguars have lots of talent at receiver beyond their starting unit and they won't be able to keep them all. It will be intersting to see who ends up getting the nod.
