2016 NFL DRAFT: Team Needs: picks 5-10 (JAX, BAL, SF, PHL, TB, NYG)

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

8 total picks
Head Coach/GM: Gus Bradley/David Caldwell
Offensive Coordinator/Style/Blocking Scheme:
Greg Olson/Balanced-Vertical/Zone
Defensive Coordinator/Style: Todd Walsh (new)/4-3 Zone/Both Cover 2 and Cover 1
Emerging Offensive Stars: Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson





Defensive Star: Malik Jackson-DE/DT (new)
Position Analysis
QB: 
Blake Bortles-Young/2014 1st RD (#3 Overall)/Good Second Season
Pass Rush/D-Line: 
LDE: Malik Jackson-near Elite/New
LDT: Jered Odrick-Good
RDT: Roy Miller-Average
RDE: Dante Fowler-Young/2015 1st RD (missed 2015 with an injury)
DT: Sen'Derrick Marks-Average
DT: Tyson Alualu-Below Average
LB: 
MLB: Paul Posluszny-Below Average
SLB: Dan Skuta-Below Average
WLB: Tevin Smith-Young/2014 5th RD
CB: 
LCB: Davon House-Average
RCB: Prince Amukamara-Average/Good/New
#3/Nickel CB: Aaron Colvin-Young/2014 4th RD
Safety:
SS: Jonathan Cyprien-Horrible in coverage/Great tackler/May move to LB
FS: Tashaun Gipson-Below Average in 2015/near Elite in 2014/New
WR/TE: 
WR: Allen Robinson-Young/2014 2nd RD/Breakout year in 2015
WR: Allen Hurns-Young/2014 Undrafted/Good in 2015
TE: Julius Thomas-Good
#3 WR: Marqise Lee-Young/2014 2nd RD
O-Line: 
OT: Luke Joeckel-Average at best
OT: Kelvin Beachum-Good/New
OT: Jeremy Parnell-Below Average
G/C: Brandon Linder-Young 2014 3rd RD/Good as a rookie/Injured last year
C:  Luke Bowanko-Young/2014 6th RD
RG: AJ Cann-Young 2015 3rd RD
RB: 
TJ Yeldon-Young/2015 2nd RD
Chris IvoryAverage/New

NEEDS: 
Multiple LB's: WLB Telvin Smith has a lot of promise. Posluszny was the best player on the roster from 2011-2013 but he's past his prime, Skuta is better served as a pass rush specialist. A young MLB and SLB are needed.
CB: Amukamara and House are good but Gus Bradley will want top add another physical press corner in the draft.
Pass Rusher:  With the #3 pick last year they drafted Dante Fowler. He is expected to be the pass rusher of the future but there's no guarantees.
O-Line Depth:  They signed Beachum, but the jury is still out on the #2 pick in the 2013 draft, Luke Joeckel. Maybe it's time to move him to RT. They are considering moving Linder to Center if they don't draft one. Expect another interior lineman to be selected in the later rounds.

#3 Safety/CB: Terrence Brooks-Young/2014 3rd RD
WR/TE: 
WR: Kamar Aiken-Breakout year in 2015
WR: Steve Smith Sr.-Good
WR: Mike Wallace-Average/New
WR: Breshad Perriman-Young/2013 1st RD/Injured last year
TE: Crockett Gilmore-Young/2014 3rd RD/showed flashes last year
TE:  Maxx Williams-Young/2015 2nd RD
O-Line: 
LT: Eugene Monroe-Good
LG: John Urschel-Young/2014 5th RD
C:   Jeremy Zuttah-Average
RG: Marshal Yanda-All Pro
RT: Ricky Wagner-Average in 2015/Elite in 2014
RB: 
Buck Allen-Young/2105 4th RD
Justin Forsett-Average

NEEDS: 
CB:  In a division with AJ Green and Antonio Brown having a good #1 CB is vital. Smith and Webb are solid but they could use a true shutdown corner. This would allow them to move Webb to slot corner.
Pass Rusher: Suggs and Dumervil can still get to the QB but both are over 30 and Suggs is coming off of a major injury. They need to add a young pass rusher to the mix.
D-Line: Williams is a beast in the middle. They have some young talents in Jernigan and Davis but if they keep the #6 pick there is a good chance that either Joey Bosa or DeForest Buckner will slip to them.
O-Line Depth: Monroe has a history of injury issues and Urschel is unproven. Ronnie Stanley could be an intriguing option at #6.

NEEDS:

DE:  Armstead was solid in limited snaps as a rookie, but they need another young DE
ILB: Bowman is a superstar but they need someone to help him inside.

C:   Jason Kelce-Good
RG: Brandon Brooks-Average/New
RT: Lane Johnson-Good
RB: 
Darren Sproles-Below Average
Ryan Mathews: Below Average

NEEDS: 
RB: The DeMarco Murray of 2014 that dominated the league in Dallas was not the same guy last year in Philly. It was just a bad fit and Eagles' management saw this and dealt him to Tennessee. They traded up with Miami to get to #8. Ezekiel Elliot could be the target there.
CB: With the addition of McLeod, the Eagles may have the best safety duo in the league, however they still need more help at corner. 
LB Upgrades: The entire core is full of players that are average at best
Backup QB:  This Sam Bradford is solid when healthy, but a young backup is needed.

Kevin Pamphile-Young/2014 5th RD
RB: 
Doug Martin-All Pro in 2015/Average and Injured before that
Charles Sims-Young/2014 3rd RD

NEEDS: 
Multiple DB's:  In a division with Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees you need to have multiple guys that can cover. As of now, they don't have a single above average player in their secondary.
Pass Rusher: Signing Ayers was a smart move but they need another guy to put pressure on the signal callers listed above.
O-Line: Recently retired Logan Mankins was their best lineman last year. Smith and Marpet both struggled as rookies. More depth and competition is needed.
WR: Evans is good, but Jackson is 33 and no other WR had more than 27 receptions in 2015.

RG: John Jerry-Below Average
RT:  Marshall Newhouse-Below Average
RB:
Shane Vereen-Average
Rashad Jennings-Average
Andre Williams-Young/2014 4th RD

NEEDS: 
Multiple LB's: They have the worst LB core in the league and it isn't even close. They need to add a play maker in the first or second round. Then take another late in the draft.
O-Line:  The G-Men need more bodies to keep the pressure off of Eli. Flowers really struggles as a rookie at LT. The right side is terrible so upgrades are needed.
FS:  Landon Collins is better suited to play in the box. They need to find a rangy FS in the second or third round.
#2 WR:  It's scary to think that Beckham could be better if he wasn't double teamed every play.
TE:  Is Larry Donnell really the answer here?
