The Jags have a strong squad that could see them as genuine contenders for a playoff berth this season. In this blog post, we look at the Jacksonville Jaguars depth chart, specifically in some of the leading positions and the key players on the squad.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a disappointing ending to the 2023 season, after what appeared to be a promising start. Their dominant wins in London set the stage for what could have been a deep playoff run. However, their loss on the final Sunday to the Tennessee Titans ended that dream.

The Jags have since improved their squad, adding more quality through a fairly successful 2024 draft and other acquisitions. Now, they are sat in 15th for the NFL’s power rankings ahead of the new season.

So let’s look at the squad as we discover the Jacksonville Jaguars depth chart, focusing on their key players in leading positions and other members who could make a difference.

The Jags have several players on offence and defence who will make a difference. Let's look at the players we think will be most important to the team.

Trevor Lawrence, Quarterback

As the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and one of the best collegiate players of all time, Trevor Lawrence has a lot to live up to. After a fairly weak rookie season, he showed his quality in his second year, leading the team to a positive record and showcasing his ability on multiple occasions.

Despite this improvement, his third year proved challenging and we are all still waiting for the Clemson Trevor Lawrence to show up and take over the league

Lawrence is the team's franchise star, and with a pass-first style of offence that is perfect for his style of play, the QB is sure to shine in his third year in the league.

With the offseason acquisition of Mac Jones at quarterback we may see the two competing for the starting role, although given Jones’ poor start to life in the NFL, Lawrence should be able to hold on to his job.

Josh Allen, Linebacker

Not to be confused with the Buffalo Bills star QB Josh Allen, Jacksonville’s Josh Allen is a superb outside linebacker who excelled at the college level and is now showing his aptitude in the NFL.

Making his 2nd Pro Bowl appearance in 2024, he was undoubtedly the shining star in an underperforming Jaguars team last season.

After being drafted in 2019, he has grown year after year, setting new personal bests in fumbles last season and tackles the season before.

He plays as an edge rusher, and his ability to get to the opposition QB last season has cemented his place in this role. With Travon Walker on the other side of the line, the two edge rushers are proving to cause chaos for quarterbacks.

Gabe Davis, Wide Receiver

Recently acquired from Buffalo, Gabe Davis will be filling the shoes of Calvin Ridley who has moved on to the Tennessee Titans.

Davis managed 746 yards and 7 touchdowns last year and will be hoping to build on this going into his 5th season in the NFL. As one of the best deep threats in the league, his speed is a great advantage for Trevor Lawrence to exploit.

As a pass-first team, the Jags have many receivers to choose from with Davis being one of the starters, alongside Christian Kirk and Zay Jones. All three will be great assets to Lawrence and are sure to bring in a lot of passes and touchdowns this season.

Evan Engram, Tight End

Along with great receivers, Lawrence will have a fantastic tight end who will help either as an option downfield to throw to or as a pass blocker.

Going into his third season with the Jaguars, his second was an improvement on an already impressive start in Jacksonville. His 114 receptions were the 4th most across the league and helped him narrowly miss out on his first 1000-yard season

While he is a strong blocker, his skills lie with his receiving abilities, and that showed in his first two seasons with the Jags as he set career numbers in almost every category for receiving each year.
