Offensive MVP: Maurice Jones-Drew, RB
Were you expecting anyone else? The Jaguars' passing attack has been awful this year, but Maurice Jones-Drew still moves the chains. He has rushed for 1,137 yards and five touchdowns with an average of 4.5 yards per carry, and he's caught 29 passes for 297 yards and a score.
With a pitiful offense around him, MJD may be the only reason Jaguars fans go to the stadium. The man knows how to play football. After coming off of a major knee surgery this offseason, MJD said in an interview it would not stop him from carrying the load, and it hasn't. He has been given the ball 250 times this year and is one of the league's best and most valuable running backs.
MJD is only 26 and shows no signs of slowing down despite incredible odds against him. Few players mean more to their teams than he means to the Jaguars.
Defensive MVP: Daryl Smith, LB
Unfortunately, Daryl Smith's quiet demeanor means he does not get recognized for his immense talent. He simply plays the game, and he's the anchor of the Jaguars' defense. He has racked up 84 total tackles this year with 2.5 sacks, six pass deflections, a pick and a forced fumble.
The Jaguars need to draft or sign a solid defensive lineman to disrupt opposing offenses and assist linebackers and defensive backs, but Smith has put together a solid season without one. He is on pace for another 100-tackle year and is the kind of player the Jaguars are lucky to have on defense.
