The Jacksonville Jaguars have a solid secondary with lots of room for growth, especially with the addition of Aaron Ross via free agency during the 2012 NFL offseason. Last season, the Jaguars showed some depth in the secondary as veteran Rashean Mathis went down with a torn ACL, followed by Derek Cox once again getting injured and injuries to back ups like William Middleton.

SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber ranked all of the cornerback units in the NFL, and the Jaguars wound up in the bottom half of the league. Hit the jump to see just where the Jaguars ranked.

19. Jacksonville Jaguars

Best Player: Derek Cox

Jacksonville's corners were hit hard by injury last season. When Cox was in the lineup, he played well. Rashean Mathis' age and rehab from a torn ACL probably gives Aaron Ross, a free agent addition, the edge over him. William Middleton played well when pressed into service; only Cox had a better grade in coverage according to Pro Football Focus.

I personally think the Jaguars are a bit better than their ranking here, but they also have both starting corners coming off of season ending injuries.
