QB, WR, OG, TE, OT, EDGE, 1T
Available Draft Picks:
1(3), 3(69), 4(110), 6(179), 7(238)
Starting Cap Space:
Picks 1(7), 2(38), 3(99), and a 2020 2nd rounder to NYJ for pick 1(3)
DT Marcell Dareus from $10,585,000 to $7,585,000
Dareus is still a great defensive tackle but at this point he could be cut with no dead cap at all and there’s no guarantee that he gets another contract that offers what he’s currently making with how strong both the draft and free agent classes are this year along the defensive line.
QB Blake Bortles to save $4,500,000
DT Malik Jackson to save $11,000,000
S Tashaun Gipson to save $7,450,000
RB Carlos Hyde to save $4,700,000
RT Jeremy Parnell to save $6,000,000
Cutting 5 players may seem excessive but the Jaguars have the worst cap situation in the NFL so if they want to be able to bring in any free agents this offseason, they have to make some tough business decisions.
LS Matt Overton for 1 year, $825,000
Although not bringing back any big-name players (because they don’t have any hitting free agency this year) the Jaguars bring back a contributor that has a quiet but important role. Overton comes back as the Jaguars long snapper.
Free Agent Signings:
S Lamarcus Joyner for 3 years, $27,000,000
TE Jared Cook for 1 year, $7,000,000
LB Clay Matthews for 1 year, $3,500,000
Lamarcus Joyner is coming off a bit of a down year but he’s one of the most versatile defensive backs available in free agency so bringing him in would do more than fill the void left by Tashaun Gipson. Jared Cook has always been a productive year but he seems to be getting better as time passes, bringing him in would be ideal for this offense. Bringing in Clay Matthews as a situational pass-rusher could be beneficial for this defense, especially come playoff time, if they can make it back.
1.3 – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
The Jaguars know how desperately they need to find a quality starter at QB so they move up to address that early by taking one of, if not the, top QB(s) in this years draft class.
3.69 – Connor McGovern, IOL, Penn State
Grabbing an immediate starter on the offensive line to replace A.J. Cann in the middle of the draft could be huge for this Jaguars offense.
4.110 – Isaac Nauta, TE, Georgia
Going offense yet again, the Jaguars find a balanced tight end who gets the benefit of sitting behind Jared Cook for a year and learning more about playing tight end in the pros.
6.179 – Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington
Kaleb McGary has plenty of experience as a starter at right tackle so he should be able to step in right away and play. He’s more athletic than refined but with NFL coaching he could be a steal.
7.238 – Alec Ingold, FB, Wisconsin
Not many teams still use fullbacks but the Jaguars do. The Jaguars love power football so taking the best fullback in the 2019 NFL Draft should be an easy decision to help boost their run game.
