NFL power rankings: Jaguars start at No. 28

The first national power rankings are coming out, and the Jaguars are... well, they're right where they should probably be.

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't shown themselves to be very good over the past few years, and as a result are starting the offseason near the bottom of the first NFL power rankings.

Just how close to the bottom?

According to Elliot Harrison of, the Jaguars are No. 28 in the league -- better than the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, and Oakland Raiders. That's probably one or two spots higher than I'd have them, but there's reason to hope the team can get better as the offseason progresses.

Ever so slowly, Gus Bradley's building something. Got a chance to catch up with Jags play-by-play man Frank Frangie last week. He feels the team must draft a pass rusher who will command double teams (not just be viable). Seemingly everyone thinks Bradley is a good coach -- whether or not his staff can get prime development from the 2014 first-round pick is another matter. As Blake Bortles goes, so the Jaguars go.

It's good to see that after two years and just seven wins, some within the national media circuit still believe the Jaguars to be building something here in Jacksonville.

What do you think? Is No. 28 too high or too low? Let us know in the comments below.
