As the Jaguars prepare for training camp, there is belief that they have put pieces in place to take steps back to respectability. And a big part of that belief is that at least defensively, they will be in most games, if not impacting the outcomes each week.
We’ve well documented the additions in free agency that will bolster the youthful likes of Jalen Ramsey, Myles Jack and Dante Fowler. It’s obvious the Jags have talent, and their fans hope that it all comes together starting in July.
And, the national media/analysts are also propping them up from time to time. Most recently, the hosts from NFL Network on its “Around the NFL” Podcast tackled the proposition of: which individual or team unit was ready to make the biggest leap in 2017? NFL Media writer/analyst Gregg Rosenthal did not hesitate to prop Jacksonville’s defense.
To checkout the full comments on the Jags go to about the 40:00 mark:

It should be noted, that the Jaguars have also been a popular “June/July Potential” team the last couple of years and it didn’t amount to anything.
But, with the talent amassed, sooner or later the proper coaching and motivation improvement is likely on the way.
