No one can question the current depth on the Jaguars offensive line, as they spent the entire first day of the draft securing their bookends. Still, the Jaguars have some areas of need that a few free agents could bolster.
John Beck, QB- The former second-round pick was a victim of circumstance in Miami, as they went through a regime change and they had no attachment to the former BYU standout. Beck could resurrect his career in Jacksonville and potentially battle Cleo Lemon for the backup quarterback job.
Ryan Plackemeier, P- Plackemeier is unproven, but incumbent Adam Podlesh hasn't been anywhere near spectacular. How can competition at any position hurt?
LeRoy Hill, LB- If Hill is clean, and there have been some whispers that say otherwise, he would represent an immediate upgrade over Clint Ingram. Seattle thought enough of him to place the franchise tag on the talented 26-year old before rescinding it when they spent the fourth overall pick in the draft on Aaron Curry.
Larry Foote, LB- Experienced veteran who was a victim of numbers amongst the leagues best linebacking corps in Pittsburgh. At 28 years old, Foote should still have a few good years left.
Travis LaBoy, DE- LaBoy may not be the next Julius Peppers, but he's an experienced defensive end and the team can use more bodies at the position.
Roderick Hood, CB- Hood is an experienced veteran corner who was replaced when the Cardinals grabbed Bryant McFadden in free agency from Pittsburgh. Hood could add more depth and competition to a position that struggled mightily a year ago.
Free Agency Still an Option for Jaguars
