The Jaguars along with every other team in the NFL have trimmed their roster to just 53 players.
Here's the full 53 broken down by position:
Quarterback (3): Blake Bortles, Chad Henne, Brandon Allen
The Jaguars roll with three QBs for a second straight season. If 2017 is a dumpster fire for the Jaguars then Brandon Allen will likely see some starts later in the season, but if the Jaguars are competitive and Blake Bortles isn't performing well then you'll most likely see some Chad Henne as the starter.
Running back (4): Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory, TJ Yeldon, Corey Grant
The Jaguars have a deep group at running back, but their two primary backups, Chris Ivory and TJ Yeldon, have done very little to show they belong this preseason. Leonard Fournette has been very impressive in the limited time we've seen him, while the team's fourth running back, Corey Grant, has been impressive in his own right. The Jaguars have great versatility in this group of backs.
Tight end (3): Marcedes Lewis, Ben Koyack, Neal Sterling
Marcedes Lewis and Ben Koyack were virtual locks to make the team. Mychal Rivera was placed on IR to start the season, so he's not going anywhere, for now. Neal Sterling will serve as the teams lone move tight end.
Fullback (1): Tommy Bohanan
Marquez Williams was surprisingly waived on Friday with an injury designation, so the Jaguars
Wide Receiver (6): Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, Arrelious Benn, Keelan Cole
The Jaguars first five wide receivers were always locked in. Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, and Arrelious Benn had no chance of being cut. The first four are big time receivers and the final is a core special teams player. The final guy to make the roster is undrafted rookie Keelan Cole. He let two touchdown opportunities slip through his fingertips (literally) in weeks two and three of the preseason, but he did more than enough to earn a roster spot with the Jags.
Offensive Line (9): Cam Robinson, Brandon Linder, AJ Cann, Jermey Parnell, Patrick Omameh, Tyler Shatley, Josh Wells, Earl Watford, Jeremiah Poutasi
The Jaguars offensive line actually has some nice depth. The only problem is that at a couple of positions the starters don't appear any better than the backups. There were several locks to make the team: Brandon Linder, Cam Robinson, AJ Cann, and Jermey Parnell are all set to be starters, even if the latter two haven't played like starters as of late. It looked like Luke Bowanko had the upper hand in the competition for the starting left guard spot, but he was traded to the Ravens on Saturday.
Offensive Total: 26 Players
Defensive End (4): Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, Dante Fowler Jr., Dawuane Smoot
The Jaguars have invested substantial resources into their defensive end position and this is the year they expect it to pay off. Guaranteed a roster spot at DE were Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, Dante Fowler Jr., and Dawuane Smoot.
Defensive Tackle (5): Malik Jackson, Abry Jones, Stefan Charles, Sheldon Day, Michael Bennett
The Jaguars have a really solid group at defensive tackle. With Abry Jones and Malik Jackson entrenched as starters the group has nice talent at the top. Stefan Charles and Sheldon Day provide good depth for the Jags. Bennett enters and important season for his future. He needs to stay healthy in 2017.
Linebacker (6): Myles Jack, Telvin Smith, Paul Posluszny, Hayes Pullard, Blair Brown, Lerentee McCray
The Jaguars have an interesting group at linebacker. The combination of Myles Jack, Paul Posluszny, and Telvin Smith will all start. Hayes Pullard is locked in as a solid backup middle linebacker. Rookie Blair Brown hasn't been overly impressive to this point, but he does have a promising skill set. Lerentee McCray makes the team as a core special teamer and decent backup strong side line backer/pass rusher.
Cornerback (5): Jalen Ramsey, AJ Bouye, Aaron Colvin, Tyler Patmon, Jalen Myrick
The Jaguars starting corners might be the most impressive group on the team, but the depth is . . . a work in progress. Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye are entrenched as the starters on the outside, while Aaron Colvin mans the nickel corner spot. Tyler Patmon has been an INT and PBU machine in training camp and clearly solidified a spot on the roster for himself. Jalen Myrick made the team despite struggling through his rookie preseason.
Safety (4): Tashaun Gipson, Barry Church, Peyton Thompson, Jarrod Wilson
The Jaguars two starters at safety are locked in. Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson will look to form one of the better duos at safety in the NFL. Behind Gipson is Peyton Thompson, a special teams ace. Backing up Church is the young playmaking strong safety Jarrod Wilson.
Defensive Total: 24 Players
Kicker (1): Jason Myers
To the dismay of many Jaguars fans, Jason Myers is the man at kicker.
Punter (1): Brad Nortman
The Jaguars have one punter as well. Brad Nortman arrived in Jacksonville in 2016 and had a really strong first season with the team. He'll look to continue his impressive play in 2017.
Long Snapper (1): Matt Overton
The Jaguars lost their starting long snapper, Carson Tinker, for the season early in camp. His replacement is Matt Overton.
