There are a handful of players competing for a spot on the Jacksonville Jaguars roster ahead of the 2023 season. Wide receiver Tim Jones helped himself with a 74-yard touchdown catch against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 of the preseason.

The Jaguars played the starters for most of the first half and entered the third half with a 17-6 lead. Jones got onto the field and made the most of his chances, reeling in a pass quarterback C.J. Beathard threw to him.

Heading onto roster cutdown day, Jones is competing with rookie Parker Washington, sophomore Kendrick Pryor, and Jacob Harris, among other players, for one or two roster spots, depending on how many receivers the Jaguars carry into the 2023 season.

Right now, Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Jamal Agnew are locks to make the team. This leaves one or two spots open, which means several promising wideouts will be left out when the Jags trim down their roster.

Last year, Jones made the cut on the strength of a highly productive preseason. In particular, his three catches for 104 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in the finale helped solidify his chances of sticking around.

Now, Jones faces stiff competition and it's not a given he'll be on the roster come Week 1. Working in his favor is that he's stepped up when he's given a chance. Against the Detroit Lions in Week 2 of the preseason, he had another huge catch.

The Jaguars wide receiver depth chart will be a close call in 2023

Jacob Harris, Elijah Cooks and Seth Williams have also made players for the Jaguars, which is why this will be a close call. As of this writing, there's still a bit more than a quarter left in the finale.

Whether it's Jones or someone else, the margin for error will be slim. If he or the rest of the wide receivers trying to make the team fail to make a strong impression with whatever changes they get, they could be left out when it's time for the Jaguars to trim down their roster.
