Jacksonville Jaguars' Top 5 Position Battles Heading into the 2014 NFL Season

OTAs are the first chance players get to prove themselves.

The Jacksonville Jaguars fielded what was generally considered one of the weakest rosters in the NFL last year. This assertion was found to be true, as the Jaguars had the 31st-ranked offense and 27th-ranked defense (total yards per game). As expected, there was some much-needed roster turnover, leading to numerous position battles. 

After a plethora of offseason moves in the draft and free agency, there are a number of positions that are open for competition. Most of these roster battles come on the defensive side of the ball, an area where head coach Gus Bradley excels and expects his team to excel at as well. 

These battles will have a profound impact on how well the Jaguars are able to do this year. They play in a division with two very good offenses in the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans. The pressure is on for the players to perform so the Jaguars can climb out of the basement of the AFC South and prove they belong in the top ranks.
