Dave Caldwell believes Jaguars pass rusher situation is fine

The Jaguars have enough pass rushers. It's fine. Everything's fine.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell believes the team's stable of pass rushers is good enough if they had to line up tomorrow.

Yeah, about that. The pass rushers currently on the Jaguars roster don't exactly provide me with a lot of confidence. Here's every player on the roster you could argue would fall under the category of "pass rusher" even if they don't play a traditional LEO or defensive end position.

Name Position Age
Tyson Alualu DE 28
Ryan Davis DE 27
Dante Fowler, Jr. DE 21
Chris Smith DE 24
Quanterus Smith DE 26
Jared Odrick DL 28
Sen'Derrick Marks DT 29
Malik Jackson DT 26

With the heavy pursuit of Olivier Vernon, and to a lesser extent Robert Ayers, it's obvious that Caldwell sees a need to upgrade and he'll likely do just that next weekend during the draft.
