3 reasons why the Jaguars could make the playoffs next season

The Jaguars could make the playoffs soon

By: Jake Rajala

The Jacksonville Jaguars broke away from the dark side with Urban Meyer and bolted to the light with Doug Pederson. I believe there’s a lot of reason for optimism with the Jags new HC-QB combination. In fact, I’m going to untwine three reasons why the Jags could surprise the football world and even make the playoffs next season.

Non-WR receiving weapons

The Jags will showcase Marvin Jones Jr and two new WRs: Christian Kirk and Zay Jones. T-Lawrence quietly has an impressive WR trio. Although, I also LOVE the receiving talent from the RB and TE positions. The former Eagles HC will be constantly dreaming up ways to get Travis Etienne and Evan Engram involved. Per CBS Sports, the dual-threat RB will be used in a “Deebo Samuel-like role”. Outside of the Jags second-year QB being a fantasy sleeper with his wide array of weapons, I also project he will have a fairly clean season in 2022 with excellent security blankets at RB and TE.

Travon Walker

The Jags first overall pick Travon Walker is certainly tired of hearing how Aidan Hutchinson is a favorite to win DROY. Walker may appear to have slightly less NFL-ready skills, but the freak athlete can surely grow as the season evolves. Walker has similar power as Khalil Mack and he can absolutely ruin opponents by himself. Chandler Jones The former Georgia Bulldog may be the next nightmare for Titans LT Taylor Lewan.

The Titans (who lost a couple of offensive pieces this off-season) have beaten the Jaguars in each of the past five games.

Pass protection

The Jags didn’t need to draft a tackle first overall to prove their love for T-Lawrence. They nicely brought back Cam Robinson on a three-year contract worth $54. Furthermore, they inked the elite guard Brandon Scherff to a three-year, $49.5 million dollar deal. The 2021 second-round pick Walker Little may also start over Jawann Taylor at RT and be an underrated long-term starter.
