The Jacksonville Jaguars had a miserable end to their season as they won just one of their final 11 games and many are feeling that this will be another rough year for them. They have a good athletic QB in Blake Bortles, but he had very little talent around him and a very weak OL. That offensive line still needs work as 1st round draft pick RB Leonard Fournette got destroyed on a massive hit by Sheldon Bay. The Line just let him walk through and for Fournette, it was like running into a brick wall. That is unusual as he is used to delivering hits like that as a ballcarrier. The Jags will have him out there for this game as they hope to get a good look at him. The Jags were 22nd in the league in rushing last year, so getting a running game going to help take the pressure off of Blake Bortles is imperative. The Jags took OT Cam Robinson (Alabama) with their 2nd pick in hopes of helping out the OL.
The defense was not that horrible overall as they allowed just 322 ypg last year, which was 6th in the league, but a lot of times that defense was put on short field due to their offense. Bortles had 23 TD passes last year, but he also had 16 INTs, which was 22nd in the league. As a result of the offensive problems, the defense allowed 25.0 ppg, which was 25th in the league. The Jags will look to shore up that defense this year and they used three of their final four pick in the draft on defense, including DE Dawuane Smoot, who will be battling for a spot on the DL. The Jags were last in the league with seven INTs and 19th in the league with 33 sacks, so look for them to work on getting pressure in the QB in the preseason.
