2007 NFL Predictions - Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars - Persistently a 2nd tier AFC team, the Jaguars will remain there for at least another year. Their defense is very strong and dynamic plus they added a playmaking safety in Reggie Nelson. But they're offense is mediocre. Maurice Jones-Drew is electric and compliments the oft-injured Fred Taylor well. The QB situation is unsettled for the both the long- and short-term. Byron Leftwich will start the season but could end it on IR or the bench. Hey is an unrestricted free agent after this season. David Garrard is consistently inconsistent and Quinn Gray is unproven. The group of WRs is dull and drops a lot of balls, despite having 2 first round draft picks (Reggie Williams & Matt Jones) in the corp. Their most reliable target is Ernest Wilford. Yeah they need help. While strong defense will keep them in games, the weak offense will prevent them from winning more than 9 games.

Prediction - 2nd, AFC South
