What started as a season that seemed destined to go down as one of the worst in NFL history has turned around to provide some hope for the future. A streak of four wins in five games gives the Jags something to hold on to as they restock this offseason and continue their rebuild.
The needs are many and, in some cases, glaring. But with so many holes to fill in, where do you start?
Todd McShay released his first 2014 mock draft Wednesday, and in doing so identified the biggest areas of need for the Jags. The most urgent: QB (shocking), defensive end, offensive tackle, wide receiver and running back. Fortunately for Jacksonville, the draft projects to be quite deep at those first two position groups, particularly at the top of the draft. So what direction do the Jags turn?
Here’s who McShay believes will provide the best fit for Jacksonville with the No. 4 overall pick.
