Jacksonville Jaguars mailbag

Got questions about the Jacksonville Jaguars? I’ll try to answer a representative selection of them every Saturday. Submit your questions via Twitter to @ESPNdirocco.

@ESPNdirocco: I expect the Jaguars to pursue a veteran receiver in free agency so if Marshall is indeed available then I expect he'd be on the list of players the Jaguars would consider. Receiver should be one of the most stocked positions in free agency so the Jaguars will have plenty of options. @ESPNdirocco: I expect the Jaguars to go after a pass-catching tight end and if Denver's Julius Thomas is available I imagine he'd be the top target. They will consider other players as well, such as Charles Clay. It's not a great draft for tight ends, so if they do take one it would be someone who's likely a bit of a project. @ESPNdirocco: There's no way to answer this question because I'm assuming you want me to plug in players that the Jaguars will sign in free agency. That's impossible because we won't know what players are available until the March 2 deadline for teams to designate franchise or transition players. I will tell you that I expect the Jaguars hope to address right tackle, tight end, veteran receiver and free safety in free agency. @ESPNdirocco: I did not see that and I would vehemently argue the point. Everyone I've spoken with, both inside and outside the organization, about the Jaguars' offensive line has raved about the play of Brandon Linder. I'm not an offensive line expert by any means, but from what I saw Linder was the Jaguars' best and most consistent offensive lineman. I'd list both tackle spots as the weakest position on the line. Linder isn't even in the conversation. @ESPNdirocco: I think it would be a waste of money, to be honest. The Jaguars have more pressing needs than defensive tackle and the ridiculous amount of money it would take to sign Ndamukong Suh would be better spent by signing a veteran receiver, a pass-catching tight end, and a right tackle. I think everyone expects the Jaguars to draft a defensive end, most likely with their first pick. @ESPNdirocco: I don't know anything about Dante Fowler as a person but people I know who cover the University of Florida have said he's a good kid. I like him as a player because he's so versatile. He played outside, inside, and some linebacker at UF. The scouting report on him is that he isn't elite but doesn't have any significant weaknesses. @ESPNdirocco: It would depend on the offer. Looking at it logically, I don't think the Jaguars would want to drop out of the top 10 unless the deal was just too good to pass up. If they remain in the top 10 they could still go with a pass rusher. If they dropped lower then other positions such as offensive tackle, defensive tackle and defensive back would be on the table. @ESPNdirocco: There's no guarantee he'll be available, either. I know the Bills really like him, and he has done a good job replacing Jarius Byrd. The Jaguars need a safety fast and savvy enough to cover the entire field. Anyone who can do that will be on their radar. @ESPNdirocco: I don't want to be rude but this isn't a realistic question because they won't all hit free agency. However, if that were to (surprisingly) be the case, then Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas. @ESPNdirocco: Yes. I'd be stunned if the Jaguars were to bring in someone with domestic violence issues.
