The Jacksonville Jaguars announced some changes to their depth chart on Wednesday afternoon, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. The changes were expected after the past three weeks and comments by head coach Gus Bradley on Monday.

Josh Evans will move back into the Jaguars starting lineup at free safety while in the more surprising news, J.T. Thomas will slide over to be the Jaguars new starting OTTO linebacker, replacing both LaRoy Reynolds and Dekoda Watson. The move to Evans was kind of expected, as the options were limited, but it will be interesting to see Thomas given a run with the first team defense.

At the corner position, Dwayne Gratz will remain one of the team's starting cornerbacks while Winston Guy will move to the back up box safety role behind Jonathan Cyprien with newly re-signed veteran Sherrod Martin taking over as the backup free safety.

Hopefully some of these changes will spark less mental errors on the defense.
