  • 2. Josh Oliver
  • 3. James O’Shaughnessy

The Jacksonville Jaguars had one of the weaker rosters in the NFL last season but perhaps their most glaring positional hole was at tight end.

The team’s leading receiver at the position in 2019 was James O’Shaughnessy (153 yards), who played in all of five games before suffering a season-ending injury.

This season, the Jags did address the need by bringing in the talented but oft-injured Tyler Eifert but he alone won’t be enough. Jacksonville will be hoping that Josh Oliver makes an impact in his second season after injuries limited him to play in just four games as a rookie.

James O’Shaughnessy is coming off of an ACL tear but should be ready to contribute by the start of the 2020 season.

The Jaguars drafted Tyler Davis out of Georgia Tech in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft and there have been talks that he could find a role as the team’s potential fullback.
