Jacksonville Jaguars Week 17 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Jacksonville Jaguars rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 32.0 (32nd)
  • Best ranking: 32nd (Multiple)
  • Worst ranking: 32nd (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

Cam Robinson, OT: He has not been great, but Robinson is a 25-year-old left tackle with 46 starts under his belt. There's always going to be a market for players with that profile. The Jaguars will have to decide whether they want Robinson to protect Trevor Lawrence's blind side or whether they want to let him walk and go in a different direction.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 32

It's official. They will be drafting Trevor Lawrence. Now the question is who will be coaching him.

USA Today -- Rank: 32

They've got a checkered (at best) history, but have never finished a year without at least two wins ... but a 15-game losing streak looms.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

New Year's resolution: Make the right hires

Sounds straightforward and simple, but the Jaguars haven't done that very often in their history, which is a large part of why they're 1-14 and locked into the No. 1 pick (which isn't a bad thing in this instance, because, Trevor Lawrence). The Jaguars have seven picks in the first four rounds, including four in the first two, and they have to nail those early picks to turn things around. Taking Lawrence is easy, but he alone isn't going to make this franchise a contender next year. We've seen what not having the right hires has done to this franchise, so owner Shad Khan has to make the right choices or he'll be facing another lost decade. -- Mike DiRocco -- Rank: 32

The No. 1 overall pick is in the bag, which is the first win the Jags have had to celebrate in months. The week-long “quarterback competition” that ended with Mike Glennon starting over Gardner Minshew stretched the bounds of decency, but if Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Bears brings an elite QB solution to Duval for the next 15 years, can you really blame the Jags for their approach? Jacksonville is riding a 14-game losing streak and has lost 10 or more games nine times in the past 10 years. This is a team screaming out for a savior. Jacksonville might just get one.
