They have a great coach, an active forward-thinking general manager, a great quarterback, and tons of weapons around him.
If the defense shows up this year, they will be really good. As long as they are respectable, the offense should be able to carry.
When it comes to an offense in the NFL, the quarterback is the most important thing. It is equally as important for the QB room to be good in general.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have an elite quarterback and good backups.
This is what it should look like entering week one:
QB1: Trevor Lawrence
Trevor Lawrence is the guy. He is the one that this team hopes to be the face of the franchise for the next decade or more.
After being a number one recruit by Clemson, he played so well in college that he became the number one pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Now, he is rising up the rankings of quarterbacks in the league. The Jaguars plan on doing a lot of winning with him leading the way. So far, so good when it comes to his NFL development.
QB2: C.J. Beathard
The Jacksonville Jaguars have had two backup quarterbacks play well this preseason. However, they brought in CJ Beathard to be the backup ahead of last year and it will stay that way.
Doug Pederson has made it clear that he likes what Beathard brings to the table away from the playing surface. Sometimes, a guy that is good with a headset is the biggest key to being the backup quarterback. That will be Beathard to begin the year.
QB3: Nathan Rourke
Nathan Rourke has been outstanding in the preseason. He has been everything he has needed to be which should earn him the job as the third-stringer. After being an undrafted free agent out of Ohio (2021), that is not a bad gig for him this year.
Rourke may end up being the backup one day and a claim can be made for him to be that guy right now. However, he should be fine rounding out what is a solid room.
If the Jaguars lost Trevor Lawrence for whatever reason for whatever amount of time, these two might be able to carry the load for a little bit. Hopefully, it doesn't come down to that. As a trio, however, they should be able to work together off the field to get the most out of this season.
