Quarterback (2, 2/53)

  • 1. Gardner Minshew
  • 2. Mike Glennon

Gardner Minshew had himself arguably the best season of any rookie quarterback in the 2019 draft class and the Jacksonville Jaguars rewarded his efforts by giving him the opportunity to prove he’s the guy as we head into the 2020 season.

They had a chance to bring in proven veterans like Cam Newton or Andy Dalton but ultimately decided to see what they have in the young gunslinger, which I believe was the correct move.

Jacksonville didn’t ignore the position this offseason, however, as they did add some needed experience to the QB room by signing Mike Glennon to be the presumed backup.

The odd men out here are Josh Dobbs and 2020 sixth-round pick, Jake Luton. I don’t see how Dobbs sticks around after the Glennon signing and while I could see the team keeping Luton on as QB3, ideally he would end up on the practice squad so the Jags could have deeper units elsewhere.

Special teams (3, 5/53)

  • 1. Josh Lambo (K)
  • 2. Logan Cooke (P)
  • 3. Matt Orzech (LS)

The Jacksonville Jaguars special teams unit will look pretty much exactly the same as last season.

Josh Lambo and Logan Cooke are two of the best players at their positions in the NFL and long snapper Matt Orzech played well as a rookie in 2019. You can go ahead and write these three in pen as far as the 53-man roster is concerned.
