  Jaguars | Myles Jack should be ready for season    Wed May 4, 05:38 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars LB Myles Jack (knee) is expected to be ready for the regular season, according to general manager Dave Caldwell. Caldwell said he doesn't see anything that would prohibit Jack from being on the field when the time comes. Jack will not participate in organized team activities, however, due to college graduation rules.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars scored a hit here with Jack. He doesn't need microfracture surgery on his knee at this time, and all reports indicate he'll be good to go for the start of the season. He's a throwback football player in the truest sense. Jack can play all over the field as he can cover, hit and always seems to find his way to the play quickly.

  Jaguars | Myles Jack to be a full participant    Mon May 2, 07:43 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars LB Myles Jack (knee) will not be limited during the team's rookie minicamp later this week. Jack suffered a season-ending knee injury in September.

Footballguys view: Per Dr. James Andrews, Jack does not (yet) need microfracture surgery on his knee. The injury certainly gave teams pause when considering Jack in the draft. A first-round talent, Jack fell to the second round and the Jaguars wisely moved up to secure his services.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville adds several UDFAs    Mon May 2, 01:40 AM

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed undrafted free-agents CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun (Minnesota), TE Braedon Bowman (South Alabama), OT Rashod Hill (Southern Mississippi), CB Mike Hilton (Mississippi), PK Jaden Oberkrom (Texas Christian), WR Jamal Robinson (Louisiana-Lafayette), OT Pearce Slater (San Diego State) and S Jarrod Wilson (Michigan) Sunday, May 1.

  Jaguars | Agree to deal with Max Wittek    Sun May 1, 02:14 PM

Free-agent QB Max Wittek (Hawaii) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Wittek lost out to Browns third-round pick Cody Kessler after backing up Matt Barkley at USC before he ended up at Hawaii. The Jaguars don't have a developmental QB on the roster, so he has a shot to stick.

  Jaguars | Myles Jack goes 36th overall    Fri Apr 29, 07:32 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected UCLA LB Myles Jack with the No. 36 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Jaguars traded up with the Baltimore Ravens for the selection.

Footballguys view: Excellent value here and being in the second round mitigates the risk. We think Jack will be all over this defense, dropping into coverage, attacking the run and generally being a nuisance. This is an impact defensive player Jacksonville has been looking for.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville moves up in second round    Fri Apr 29, 07:31 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired the 36th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for the 38th overall pick and the 146th overall pick. The Jaguars picked LB Myles Jack with the selection.

Footballguys view: We love it and we love the pick of Jack, who will play with a chip on his shoulder. The medicals are a concern, but Dr James Andrews said that Jack doesn't need surgery now. It could happen at some point, but in the end if Jacksonville can get three or four years out of him it is well worth it.

  Jaguars | Myles Jack could go to Jags    Fri Apr 29, 02:53 PM

UCLA LB Myles Jack (knee) could be taken by the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 38 overall in the second round Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: We're sure Jack won't drop further and he could be a steal in the second. At this point the risk of his knee imploding is outweighed by the ability he brings to the football field.

  Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey goes to Jags at No. 5    Thu Apr 28, 08:46 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Ramsey is a press ­cover corner with disruptive length who can throw off receivers at the line and on their routes. He can shut down vertical routes as well and this should help the Jaguars defend some good AFC passers.

  Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey to compete for starting job    Thu Apr 28, 08:16 PM

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon pleads guilty    Thu Apr 28, 03:21 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge from December in Oklahoma Thursday, April 28. He's scheduled to be sentenced June 8. It was Blackmon's third alcohol-related arrest and fourth arrest overall. He hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season, and he's been suspended indefinitely since. The Jaguars believe Blackmon is unlikely to play in the NFL again.

Footballguys view: Such an absolutely shame. Blackmon is very talented but cannot get out of his own way. We hope he can find a way to get his life back on track, whether or not he ever sees a football field again.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles excited about Marqise Lee    Sat Apr 23, 12:31 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said it has been hard to build chemistry with WR Marqise Lee because of all Lee's injuries, but he said the receiver brings something special to the table.

Footballguys view: We've been "meh" on Lee ever since his final year at USC. He's never been able to recapture the magic he briefly flashed early in his college career. We think Rashad Greene should beat him out for the Jaguars WR3 spot.

  Jaguars | Bigger role for Julius Thomas?    Sat Apr 23, 12:19 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.

Footballguys view: Thomas just needs to stay healthy. There's no question that he's got a nose for the end zone and can be a dangerous factor as a receiver. However, Thomas has never played a full 16-game season in his pro career. It would greatly benefit the Jaguars if he can finally stay healthy all year this year.

  Jaguars | JAX willing to make Josh Norman offer    Fri Apr 22, 12:35 PM

Free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers) has been contacted by Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars defense is a work-in-progress, but they'd certainly get a boost from Norman. Caldwell said their potential offer has a significant gap from what Norman is seeking.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville interested in Josh Norman    Thu Apr 21, 02:56 AM

The Jacksonville Jaguars have interested in free-agent CB Josh Norman (Panthers), a source said Wednesday, April 20. The team has more than $50 million in salary cap space, and they were interested in Norman prior to his franchise tagging by the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: They have the money and they have the need, but is it a critical one? We think Jacksonville could compete in a relatively weak AFC South, so adding a playmaker at corner would help, but do they have too many holes to justify it?

  Jaguars | Dante Fowler working in offseason program    Wed Apr 20, 11:44 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler (knee) is taking part in the team's offseason program. He is making his way back after offseason knee surgery.

Footballguys view: Fowler will be a big part of the defense after missing his rookie season but we expect the team to be cautious with him.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville has two No. 3 WR options    Mon Apr 18, 06:04 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Rashad Greene and Marqise Lee are expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during offseason workouts and training camp.

Footballguys view: We prefer Greene in this battle. Greene has speed to get on top of the defense in a hurry, and he's proven to make difficult catches seem routine. Lee has a good skill set, but he's largely disappointed and hasn't looked the same since his early days in college at USC.

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns feeling confident    Sat Apr 9, 09:40 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns said he and WR Allen Robinson are the best receiver tandem in the NFL and are only going to improve.

Footballguys view: They may not be the best starting duo at WR...but they're close to the top. Hurns was an amazing find for the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2014. Teaming him up with Robinson has worked out well, and the duo should continue to produce at a high level in 2016.

Ohio State CB Eli Apple is meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, April 5, according to various reports.

Footballguys view: Apple has good size at 6'1" and he can use that length to break up passes downfield. He likes to win at the point of the catch, and Apple can be quite disruptive on contested passes.

Ohio State DE Joey Bosa is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Tuesday, April 5.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory and RB T.J. Yeldon will be in a competition to see who opens the 2016 season as the starter, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: When Ivory was added, Yeldon's fantasy owners knew this was a possibility. Both backs are talented, and there's some form of RBBC coming for this team in 2016. We'll see how this competition plays out in training camp.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon led all running backs with 49.3 snaps per game in 2015, and head coach Gus Braldey said RB Chris Ivory was signed in part to help keep Yeldon healthy.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is a big back who can wear down opponents. While doing that, he takes a lot of punishment himself. Having Ivory in the mix will help both backs. We'll see who can win the starting job when training camp rolls around.

  Jaguars | Dante Fowler won't be rushed    Thu Mar 24, 11:53 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler (knee) can't wait for offseason workouts to begin, according to head coach Gus Bradley. 'We'll be smart with him and bring him along slowly to make sure he's 100%,' Bradley said. 'But all signs are that the arrow is up.'

Footballguys view: Fowler has the potential to be a fine pass-rusher at the pro level. The Jaguars are wise to take it easy on the second-year player as he gets ready for his first season of action after missing all of his rookie year.

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns may receive extension    Mon Mar 21, 01:10 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns could have contract extension talks with the team after the 2016 NFL Draft, according to general manager David Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Hurns was a great find for the Jaguars. An undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2014, Hurns is set to play in the final year of his contract this year. Coming off a 1,000-yard, 10-TD season it's wise for the Jaguars to consider locking him up with an extension.

  Jaguars | Yeldon, Ivory to split carries    Thu Mar 10, 01:30 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory will likely split carries in 2016, according to general manager David Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Disappointing news regarding Yeldon, who we love and would like to see get more run. That said, Ivory is a reliable back who can ease the pressure on the second-year back to carry a chunk of the offense. This will likely hamper both of their fantasy value though and we don't see either one as more than a RB3 at best.
