The Jaguars are betting favorites to pick #1 in the 2021 draft, and by all accounts, they should be.
What was once a loaded defense is nothing but question marks now outside of Josh Allen. Minshew Mania faded quickly after a fun start, and now Gardner Minshew is just a mustachioed placeholder. You couldn’t name Jacksonville’s starting RB even if you play fantasy football.
New York Jets
At least Jaguars fans (fan?) knew a reset was coming. Poor Jets fans backed into another rebuilding year when C.J. Mosley opted out and the team traded Jamal Adams. Suddenly the cornerstones of a once-promising defense are gone while, inexplicably, Adam Gase still roams the sidelines.
The Jets might have the worst pass defense in the league, though they’ll helped by a division that’s opted out of quarterbacks. Adams was probably their best run and pass defender, and maybe their best pass rusher too.
The offense doesn’t look as bleak but depends greatly on Sam Darnold, who didn’t “make out” (see what I did there?) too well his sophomore season.
