FB: What’s the best offseason move made by the Jaguars?

DL: The Jaguars have made arguably the most moves this offseason of any team in the entire league, but the player who should have the biggest impact is tight end Julius Thomas. It’s an easy choice because he’s by far the highest profile acquisition, but he really is exactly what the Jaguars needed on offense.

Thomas provides a veteran presence on a historically young offensive unit, and his ability to stretch the field at the tight end position should open up tons of opportunities on offense.

FB: What’s the worst move?

DL: The most questionable move of the offseason was the acquisition of cornerback Davon House from Green Bay. The narrative from most national analysts is the Jaguars need tons of help at cornerback, but that’s far from the truth.

Demetrius McCray ascended into a reliable cover corner last year, and rookie Aaron Colvin was terrific coming back from his knee injury. House is somewhat of an unknown commodity, but the Jaguars paid him like a number 1 corner. Hopefully he works out, but he’s a big gamble.

FB: What are your expectations for the Jaguars in 2015?

DL: The Jaguars should absolutely push for a playoff spot in what is arguably the weakest division in the NFL. Despite their appearance in the AFC championship, the Colts have maybe the least impressive roster in the division outside of Andrew Luck. The Jaguars should flirt with 8 or 9 wins in 2015.
