NFL Preseason Preview Capsules: AFC

11 of 16

AFC South: Jacksonville Jaguars

OPEN CAMP: July 25, Jacksonville, Florida.

LAST YEAR: Under general manager Dave Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley, rebuilding Jaguars lost first eight games by double digits. They enjoyed slight turnaround, winning three of four at one point, but ended up with fifth losing record in last six years.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: QB Blake Bortles; G Zane Beadles; DEs Red Bryant and Chris Clemons; RB Toby Gerhart; DT Ziggy Hood; WRs Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson; LB Dekoda Watson.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: DE Jason Babin; RB Maurice Jones-Drew; C Brad Meester; G Uche Nwaneri.

CAMP NEEDS: Get WRs Cecil Shorts III, Lee and Robinson back following offseason injuries and keep them healthy. Develop continuity along revamped offensive line. Get newcomers Beadles, Bryant, Clemons, Gerhart and Watson more comfortable in starting roles. Keep grooming Bortles.

EXPECTATIONS: Despite roster overhaul, Jaguars are probably still another year away from competing for playoffs. Bortles is eventual starter and key to franchise's future success, but might sit out all of 2014 while transitioning from spread offense to pro system. (AP Photo/John Raoux)
