2015 Depth Charts: Jacksonville Jaguars
• Blake Bortles struggled as a rookie, with the lowest graded first season of any quarterback since Blaine Gabbert. He did look good in preseason however, so the big thing will be seeing how he can improve in 2015.
• Last season the Jaguars had three running backs see at least 300 snaps on the field. What they need in 2015 is to find someone who can really stand out at the position, with nobody doing that in 2014.
• Though he filled a limited role, Ryan Davis was excellent when he was on the field, finishing the season with eight sacks which was tied for second on the Jaguars defense.
• While there are plenty of question marks on the offense, right guard Brandon Linder is emerging as one of the better guards in the league, finishing the season as the sixth-highest graded right guard.
Linebacker: Telvin Smith was solid in 2014 at several positions, but outside of him there are plenty of question marks at linebacker. Paul Posluszny struggled in 2014 prior to his injury, while we haven’t seen enough of the other outside linebackers to tell how effective they can be yet.
Free Safety: While he wasn’t outstanding, John Cyprien improved in 2015 after a poor rookie season. That should give him some more time to prove he deserves his spot in the starting lineup. Josh Evans has struggled at free safety though and a replacement via free agency or the draft would make sense.
Running Back: As mentioned above, though they had three players with 300 or more snaps at running back in 2014, nobody really stood out. Finding a player who can carry the load would make a big difference in 2015.
