Jacksonville Jaguars Off-Season Outlook: Offense

Unlike the Jaguarsdefense, the Jaguars offense has many pieces in place and is on the verge of being one of the top offenses in the league. It's an offense that has one of the best running backs and tight ends in the NFL in Maurice Jones-Drew and Marcedes Lewis. The offense does have some tweaking that can be done to it, however.

Jaguars players on offense set to be free agents:

Now depending on who you are, the biggest hole on the Jaguars offense varies. For myself, it's consistent quarterback play. Some others will say lack of a true number one wide receiver. As far as the current Jaguars scheduled free agents on offense, Marcedes Lewis is obviously a high priority. It remains to be seen if he will be franchise tagged or signed to a long-term deal, regardless of which the Jaguars cannot afford to let him go. Both Sims-Walker and Hill I believe should be retained, but the word is Mike Sims-Walker would rather test his luck in free agency and potentially go to a team with a better quarterback situation. Neither Sims-Walker or Hill should be expensive to retain, but with the film out on Hill as a Jaguar, it's very possible he will get looks from multiple teams. Jason Hill will likely be brought back, the Jaguars can't afford to neither being back  as it would set back a receiving corps that's been slowly growing and has gotten to a respectable level.

Potential Jaguars WR Targets:

As far as quarterback, it's obvious the Jaguars have to do something. There's only one quarterback on the roster under contract and that's David Garrard. Jack Del Rio noted in his end of the season press conference the Jaguars haven't been aggressive at the quarterback position and they planned to be this season. Well, they better. I can't see another pre-season of going in with little to no real competition for the quarterback position. I expect the Jaguars to re-sign Luke McCown and draft one in the first two rounds.

Potential Jaguars QB Targets:

On the offensive line and running back position, the Jaguars are pretty much set. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Jaguars go after a potential starting guard or draft a guard/center player. Brad Meester, while still playing well, is getting long in the tooth and is starting to push the time when his play should start to significantly drop off. It's possible the Jaguars could go after a guard and slide Uche Nwaneri to the inside at center where he's been cross-training. The team also likes John Estes a lot, who was placed on injured reserve before the season. There are a couple of players the Jaguars could make a run at however if they really wanted to bolster the line.
