The Jaguars, as a whole, were largely disappointing in 2019. When a team struggles, there are a number of contributing factors, one being a lack of individual success.
Here are five players that need to step up for the Jaguars to compete for one of the seven playoff spots in the AFC in 2020.
Cam Robinson - Coming off a 2018 ACL tear, left tackle Cam Robinson struggled to find consistency in 2019. He didn't quite look right for most of the season, as is the case with many offensive linemen coming off of lower-body injuries. Over the last four games, Robinson did improve, if ever so slightly. He reduced the number of pressures he was giving up on a per-game basis from 3.8 over his first ten games to 1.75 during his final four starts of the year. He still allowed three sacks in the last four weeks of the season, but his performance improved down the stretch. If he can improve slightly on his level of play over the last quarter of the 2019 season, the public's opinion on Robinson will improve.
Chris Conley - When I assert that Conley needs to improve in 2020, it's purely from a catching consistency standpoint. It was plain to see in 2019 that when Conley was focused, he could be a game-changer, as he averaged 16.5 yards per catch and scored five times. But Conley only caught 52.2% of his targets last season and dropped seven passes. If he can improve his consistency catching the ball, he'll be a major asset for Gardner Minshew in 2020.
Myles Jack - Don't get me wrong, I fully expect Myles Jack to improve in 2020. He was put in a bad spot in 2020, partially due to a lack of talent around him and partly due to being out of position. But Jack will be in his more natural weakside linebacker position in 2020 and will have Joe Schobert playing next to him in the middle. Jack needs to be a playmaker for the Jaguars in 2020, and there's no reason to believe he won't be.
Ronnie Harrison - Harrison entered the starting lineup for the first time in 2019 and had his fair share of ups and downs. He had some marvelous performances for the Jaguars last season but laid an egg in a handful of games as well. There's no questioning his talent, but Harrison just needs to find more consistency from week to week.
AJ Cann - The 2015 third-round pick enjoyed some sustained success during his first two years in the league, but over the last three, he's failed to live up to that same level of play. He'll have spurts of dominance in games, but too often ends up on the wrong side of a drive altering play.
