Bruce Irvin is obviously a target, even with the news of the Jaguars reportedly coveting Denver Broncos pass rusher Malik Jackson. The Jaguars and general manager Dave Caldwell look more and more likely every day to go fast and furious for any and all players who can help them rush the quarterback.

J.R. Sweezy and Patrick Lewis struggled in both pass protection and run blocking, so I don't think they're options. I think the only legitimate target is going to be Irvin.
