The Jacksonville Jaguars have been one of the NFL's most impressive teams over the past month, winning four of five games all as underdogs. Once thought to win at most two games and lock up the No. 1 pick in the 2014 Draft, the Jaguars won't even finish at the bottom of their own division and could be out of the bottom-5 come draft time. However, Jags wideout Cecil Shorts, a key reason for the team's offensive success (66 receptions, 777 yards, three touchdowns), looks to be facing offseason surgery on his injured groin and could be out the final three games of the season. In his absence, it's conceivable rookie WR Ace Sanders steps up to have a big performance.
