All these additions have shown that head coach Gus Bradley and general manager David Caldwell have a plan and are working to build long-term, rather than look for an easy fix.

The roster is stacked full of young talent, and guys like Cann and Bennett who many believed could be selected much higher than they were.

If the additions to the offensive line work out and Yeldon is able to perform at the level the team is hoping for, tons of pressure will be taken off the young quarterback in his second season.

More time in the pocket, a strong running game and good tight ends to open things up for the young wide outs should result in Jacksonville becoming a surprise team in the NFl.

While I believe they will be vastly improved, my guess is they still fall short of the playoffs, but begging the climb towards respectability.
