As the days dwindle during the countdown to training camp, the Jaguars have to feel good about their roster.
Looking at the entire depth chart, it appears the Jaguars have hedged their bets at several spots. While there are still question marks at a handful of positions, the roster - for the most part - seems to have added stability.
The Jaguars had a busy offseason, which led to some big changes for certain spots. In order to understand the upcoming battles for training camp, it's important to dissect the depth chart at each individual position.
Our training camp roster preview series continues with the tight end position.
The Jaguars seemingly made one of the more underrated free-agent signings in March when the team inked Seferian-Jenkins to a two-year deal. The veteran made several impressive catches during the offseason program and seems to have a solid chemistry with quarterback Blake Bortles.
If Seferian-Jenkins can keep his foot on the production pedal, the Jaguars will finally have a go-to threat at tight end.
While the Jaguars have a plethora of tight ends and special team aces, Paul is among the most experienced in both groups. The Jaguars signed the veteran to a two-year, $4.75 million deal during free agency.
Paul could be a solid second option at tight end for the Jaguars if he can hold off James O'Shaughnessy and Ben Koyack. Of the secondary tight end group, Paul is easily the most proven player.
The O Show displayed consistent hands and special teams value during his first season with the Jaguars. He carried over his momentum to the offseason program, as he was able to make consistent plays in the passing game during non-contact drills.
O'Shaughnessy's key to playing time will be his ascending blocking ability. He will need to beat out Paul and Koyack to earn the second tight end gig.
Koyack was mostly used as a blocker last season but made the game-clinching touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills during last year's wildcard playoff game. He has been known as a strong blocker during his career but he will need to show steady hands to receive more playing time.
The Paul signing wasn't a great look for Koyack but he still has an opportunity to earn a gig. The Jaguars are likely to keep four tight ends if there is enough talent to warrant the numbers.
The Long Shots
After spending all of last year on the practice squad, Grinnage was prepared for the rigors of the offseason program and performed accordingly. He has a lot of experience in front of him on the depth chart but injuries or a strong preseason performance could give him a boost.
Orndoff is likely competing for a practice squad spot in Jacksonville or elsewhere. A late addition to the offseason program, he didn't have a lot of time to stand out. Training camp and the preseason will be his outlets to achieve some form of success.
