Looking around the AFC, it struck me that the Jaguars drafted two outstanding defensive rookies - DT Taven Bryant from Florida in the 1st round followed by S Ronnie Harrison from Alabama in the 3rd round to join a tough, young, successful defense that made it to the AFC Championship game. Jacksonville Jaguars' 2018 draft: Analysis for every pick Blake Bortles took a huge step in 2017. He was cool under pressure in the playoffs, and made good decisions against the Pats. The Jags are on the rise while other traditional AFC powers are in transition or fading. I'm not particularly impressed with our traditional nemeses - Steelers, Broncos, Ravens or Colts. The rest of the AFC South is pretty tough and made changes, but the best of that bunch is Tennessee right now. Andrew Luck is a wild card. Who knows how that will work out. The Jags have the defense to deal with all of them. From what I see, the Jags are our chief concern in the AFC.
