Linebacker (4, 43/53)

  • 1. Joe Schobert
  • 2. Myles Jack
  • 3. Quincy Williams
  • 4. Shaq Quarterman

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free agent Joe Schobert to a big contract this offseason which moves Myles Jack to his more natural position on the strong side when in base downs. His play has slipped since his transition to middle linebacker so the addition of Schobert should help Jack get back to a high level of play in 2020.

Behind them, the Jags have a couple of young backers that both play with a lot of energy.

Quincy Williams had some growing pains in 2019 but he showed some likable traits at times during his rookie year.

The final spot on the linebacker unit goes to Shaquille Quarterman, who the Jaguars drafted in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

If the team does decide to go with five players here, Leon Jacobs would be the guy but it’s tough for me to find where he fits in.
