Jacksonville Jaguars 53-man roster prediction: Post-draft edition

New, comments
NFL: Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 NFL Draft is over and after a lot of activity in free agency, the predicted Jacksonville Jaguars’ 53-man roster could (and should) look quite differently than it did at this point last year.

Are there any UDFAs who could squeeze onto the roster? (I think so.)

Any draft picks who might not make it? (Probably.)

Will there be any players not currently on this roster who make the team? (Yup.)

Should a couple of veterans have their agents prepare for conversations with other teams? (Absolutely.)

Who makes this roster and who doesn’t? Here are my predictions for who I think will be on the 53-man roster come Week 1 against the Houston Texans.
