The Pro Football Writers of America released their annual awards on Tuesday. Three Jaguars appeared.
Calais Campbell was named to the All-AFC team at defensive end. Campbell's sack numbers were down for a second straight year — he finished with just 6.5, but he continued to be a force against the run, picking up 56 total tackles, including ten tackles for a loss.
Josh Allen and Jawaan Taylor were both named to the All-Rookie team.
Josh Allen's impact as a pass rusher was felt immediately in 2019. The rookie from Kentucky racked up 10.5 sacks, the most of any rookie if 2019, 44 tackles, 22 QB Hits, and two forced fumbles.
Jawaan Taylor was a day one starter for the Jaguars at right tackle. Taylor started all 16 games for the Jaguars and was an above-average pass protector, even by veteran standards. He was heavily penalized early on, but in his final four games, Taylor picked up only two penalties.
The only notable snubs here were Gardner Minshew, Josh Lambo, and Logan Cooke. The PFWA selected Kyler Murray as their All-Rookie QB. But in nearly every meaningful stat, Minshew was more impactful.
