By five-o'clock this afternoon the Jacksonville Jaguars will need to cut four players to trim their roster down to 75 players. They only need to cut four because third round pick defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith will hit injured reserved due to the achilles injury he suffered during training camp.

So, what do I think the final roster will look like?

This is my pre-4th pre-season game roster prediction. It can change quite a bit depending on how Game 4 goes. I'd also like to note that I believe the Jaguars will make moves and have 2-4 players on the roster who are on other teams right now.

Special Teams:



Wide Receivers:

Offensive Line:

Tight End:

Defensive End:

Defensive Tackle:




In all honesty, I expect the Jaguars to pick up a linebacker or two and a safety or two, be it by either trade or waiver wire.

I chose four tight ends, because outside of Lewis the blocking from the tight ends is lackluster. I thought about forcing Brock Bolen on the roster, but a team can't carry 3 RB/FB players and I still feel Greg Jones is the better player and helps the team out more, despite his salary, for this  season. It's very likely Bolen winds up on the practice squad.

I believe Reggie Nelson falls in the same boat as Justin Smiley, he's starting or he's cut, and I think both will be cut and/or traded if a team feels like offering up a ham sandwich.

I've been told by some people that the Jaguars will not carry more than 5 wide receivers, else I would have put Underwood on the roster. In this instance I chose Williamson over him, because Underwood can be placed on the practice squad and brought up later if needed.
