Similar to AFC South rival Tennessee, the Jaguars have one of the most promising young offenses in the conference. After a disastrous rookie year, quarterback Blake Bortles shook off the whispers that he might have been a bust with the best passing season in Jacksonville history. Bortles set franchise records for most passing touchdowns (35), yards (4,428), pass attempts (606) and threw a touchdown strike in 15 of the 16 games. Bortles has emerged as one of the top young signal-callers in the league and has his top flight wideout duo to thank.
The lone Jaguars Pro Bowl selection in 2015, Allen Robinson was a touchdown machine for Jacksonville. The 22-year-old set a franchise record for most receiving touchdowns in a season (14) and was the first Jaguars player since Jimmy Smith in the mid-2000’s to record a 1,000 yard season. Robinson isn’t the only third-year player to be a featured weapon for Jacksonville in 2016. University of Miami product Allen Hurns notched his own 1,000 yard season (1,031) and recorded 10 touchdowns of his own. The duo of Robinson and Hurns (who also holds the record for most touchdowns by an undrafted free agent through their first two seasons) is one of the best in the league.
Although the Jaguars feature a plethora of weapons for Bortles to throw to, there is some concern about the offensive line not being able to perform to a high enough level. Jacksonville selected tackle Luke Joeckel as the number two overall pick in 2013 and the franchise hopes he can take the next step in 2016.

How To Win At Jacksonville Jaguars Betting
Though Jacksonville did not send any of its defensive players to the Pro Bowl in 2015, the Jags still have some talent that can make some waves in the AFC South. The first two of which are the biggest boom-or-bust candidates in the division: defensive end Dante Fowler and safety Jalen Ramsey.
Both were top five Jags’ selections in the last two drafts, but both have been sidelined with knee injuries. Fowler missed all of the 2015 season after suffering a torn knee ligament during spring drills and Ramsey suffered a less significant, but still troubling injury. If both can stay healthy, they give the Jaguars a chance to have one of the more exotic defenses.
The two most solid players in terms of on-field play and physique for the Jacksonville defense are linebackers Paul Psluszny (a Pro Bowl selection in 2013) and Telvin Smith.
Both are amidst the top tackling machines in the conference and will be relied upon heavily as usual to keep making plays for the Jacksonville defense. Another notable new addition to the Jacksonville defense is former Seattle Seahawk stalwart Michael Bennett. The hard-nosed Bennett will bring another nasty edge to the Jaguars and will be an instant locker room presence.
