The Jacksonville Jaguars invested heavily in the wide receiver position last offseason by signing free agents Zay Jones and Christian Kirk. Both players were a big part of this offense and adding that extra talent certainly helped Trevor Lawrence have the season he did.
They also added Calvin Ridley during the season but he was not able to play as he was serving a year-long suspension. He is expected to step in as that top wide receiver for Lawrence and this offense but even with all the improvements, it shouldn’t stop Jacksonville from adding more to the position.
One thing that this offense is lacking at the position is a vertical threat or player that can get over the top of the secondary. Quentin Johnston out of TCU would be a great player to add that could address that.
In three seasons with the Horned Frogs, Johnston averaged over 19 yards per reception and this past year had 60 receptions, over 1,000 receiving yards, and six receiving touchdowns. If the Jaguars added Johnston a group that already included Calvin Ridley, Christian Kirk and Zay Jones there wouldn’t be many offenses in the NFL with a better collection of wide receivers.
