Jaguars Scouting Report

Jacksonville's Record: 1-1

Last Game: Lost 33-30 at Tennessee Titans

The youngest team in the NFL, Jacksonville is led by cult hero and emerging second-year quarterback Gardner Minshew. Minshew threw 21 touchdowns compared to just six interceptions as a rookie and has put up six more touchdown tosses in the first two games of 2020.

Minshew has a plethora of options to spread the ball to, like third-year receiver D.J. Chark, who produced 1,008 receiving yards a year ago. Rookie receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. can play any of the skill positions on offense (60 snaps at receiver, 10 at running back, three at tight end and one at quarterback through two games) and James Robinson is the first undrafted rookie to start a season opener at running back since 1990.

Defensively, Jacksonville is led by a pair of linebackers who have taken every snap so far in 2020. Myles Jack leads the team in several categories. He's made the most tackles (16), run stops (13), sacks (1, tied with K'Lavon Chaisson) and has just one missed tackle on the season. Schobert led all NFL linebackers in 2019 (as a member of the Browns) with four interceptions. He also broke up nine passes and forced two fumbles.
