NFL Free Agency 2013: Jaguars not likely big players

The Jaguars are going to build through the draft under David Caldwell, because of course they are.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to begin self-evaluation of their roster at the conclusion of the 2013 Senior Bowl to get ready for the free agency period. Based on some of the talk by new Jaguars general manager David Caldwell however, I'm not inclined to think the Jaguars will be big players in free agency.

"We're going to be a heavily-draft-built team," Caldwell told John Oehser of Jaguars.com. "We're going to do this from the ground up, and start with the draft. We'll supplement through free agency if we have to."

While every team always says they're going to "build through the draft", Caldwell is starting with a limited foundation. It's likely part of why he plans on needs drafting in the top four rounds as well. I would expect the Jaguars to pick up 1-3 starters in free agency, potentially at right tackle and cornerback, but outside of that not much more.

For Caldwell's first season, he's going to want to set an initial foundation and fully evaluate the roster with the massive overhaul likely coming in the next offseason.
