Trio of injured Jacksonville Jaguars draft picks need to rebound in 2017 -
The Jaguars will definitely see plenty of change this off-season. Players will be cut, free agents and draft prospects will be added and the new coaching staff will implement - hopefully - more sound strategies than the previous leadership. With all of the turnovers - both in personnel and staff - it would be easy to lose track of the group of players that spent most of last season on injured reserve.

If the Jaguars had listened to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, here’s what their draft haul might've looked like over the past seven years.

Drew Brees on Doug Marrone: “He did a phenomenal job for us” -
Drew Brees couldn’t have been more heartfelt. The issue was the Jaguars’ new head coach, and Brees – the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback and a 10-time Pro Bowl selection – was clear in his feelings. “I love Doug Marrone,” Brees said. Brees spoke to Wednesday morning while attending Super Bowl LI week in Houston, and he talked about the time he and Marrone spent together from 2006-2008.

Does Dave Caldwell have a good handle on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ needs? -
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell has a tough task in assessing a team that is transitioning under his leadership. Does he have it right? Teams often bring in outside people to have fresh eyes on a problem. People removed from the situation and less invested in the status quo can often provide greater insight into the problems a team may be facing. The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone with a different approach in retaining general manager Dave Caldwell but also bringing in executive vice president for football operations Tom Coughlin.
