Given some time to assess the 11 teams that have already been eliminated from playoff contention, here is what I would put at the top of each wish list:
Biggest wish: Franchise quarterback
If you want to know why Jacksonville hasn’t been able to field a consistent winner this millennium, look no further than the team’s spotty quarterback play over the past couple decades. Mark Brunell is considered the only franchise quarterback in Jaguars history, and the organization’s inability to find a legit QB1 since the three-time Pro Bowler departed has fueled their struggles. That’s why it is imperative for the Jags to nail the pick when presumably selecting their quarterback in the draft. Currently holding the No. 1 overall selection, this team desperately needs a five-star playmaker at the game’s most important position with leadership skills, intangibles and a winning pedigree to turn the franchise around.
