After a dismal 5-11 season, the Jacksonville Jaguars knew that they need to make major changes in their squad and as the preseason opener approaches, it is looking more and more like the Jaguars were successful in implementing a plan to bring in veterans and select draft picks that made a difference.
In free agency, the Jaguars made key additions to key areas including upgrading the offensive line (signed OT Kelvin Beachum,) pass rushing (signed DE Malik Jackson) the secondary (signed CB Prince Amukamara and SS Tashaun Gipson) .
The draft was a pleasant surprise as the Jags selected who they thought would be the number one selection, Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey who fell to their 5th selection. In the second, their slotted 5th selection, LB Myles Jack, was still on the board so the Jaguars stuck with the pick and drafted him in the second round. The rest of the picks were selections that will make the team stronger in the long run including a quarterback, two defensive ends, two linebackers and a defensive tackle..
The Jaguars kick off preseason on the road against the New York Giants. They make their preseason home debut in week two with a preseason match up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
