The Jacksonville Jaguars are a rather young team trying to break out in 2012 and have a few players that you could consider as "breakout" candidates. The majority of these candidates are on the offensive side of the football, as the team was obviously woeful in that area during the 2011 NFL season. There are a couple of defensive players who fit that mold, including defensive end Jeremy Mincey.

While having Mincey's name here might raise a few eyebrows, he's setup to improve on his career year of eight sacks from 2011. Fresh off a new four-year deal, Mincey could finally reach double-digit sacks in the 2012 NFL season. Mincey is the classic "late bloomer" at the defensive end position, but a lot of that had to do with being buried on the depth chart behind early draft picks and dealing with injuries. As long as Mincey can stay healthy, his relentlessness alone should help push him to possibly double-digit sacks this season.
