Help is not on the way for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The 2019 NFL Draft is over. Free agency was almost two months ago. A trade isn’t out of the question, but you shouldn’t count on it. The roster, as it currently stands, is what coaches and front office executives will have to mold, trim, and form into a 53-man team to compete for an AFC South crown and playoff berth.
Are there any UDFAs who could squeeze onto the roster? (I think so.)
Any draft picks who might not make it? (Maybe one. Maybe.)
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 Kansas City Chiefs.
