5. Jacksonville Jaguars

It terms of pure spending power the Jacksonville Jaguars are a team to watch this offseason. The Jaguars are behind just the Chargers and Dolphins in cap space and with the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, if Jacksonville pulls the right strings, they could be a competitive team next season.

One of the positions that the Jaguars are going to need to address is the linebacker position. While the team has Myles Jack at one of the inside linebacker spots, the team has been unable to find him a good running mate. Damien Wilson was that guy last season and he just is not that great of a player.

While linebacker is a need, it is not one of the biggest needs on the Jaguars. The team needs to build up both lines and needs to add some top-line receiving help to give Trevor Lawrence a decent target. Most of those other holes are going to be filled in the draft or with bigger signings, though.

The team is likely going to take Aidan Hutchinson with the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to fix the edge problem and should be taking a tackle with the 33rd overall pick in the draft as well. They can use the rest of the picks to help build up the interior offensive and defensive line as well as the secondary.

That leaves a position like linebacker to be upgraded in free agency but not at a big cost. That is where White comes into play. However, if White is signing with the Jaguars then they are likely going to have to sway him with the money, which is what they did with Rayshawn Jenkins.

The Jaguars absolutely could come over the top with an offer that guarantees $5 million more than the LA Chargers' best offer and with no state taxes in Florida, that is really hard to beat.
