Get To Know The 5 Best Players Of Jacksonville Jaguars in 2023-24 Season

The Jacksonville Jaguars, a pride of Florida, is the second seed of the AFC South in the 2023-24 NFL Season. Even though they didn’t make it to the Super Bowl LVIII, the team possesses talented and highly determined players.

 

Throughout the 2023-24 season, five players showed amazing performance in the gridiron, showcasing their skills and prowess for the world to witness. Let’s get to know who these players are and see why they are considered the key stars of the Jacksonville Jaguars this season.

 

Trevor Lawrence

The Jacksonville Jaguars entered the 2023-24 NFL Season with a +2500 odds to win Super Bowl LVIII. They are the 10th best odds as the season started. One factor contributing to having the tenth-best odds is the team’s key players.

 

For each team in the NFL, the quarterback is commonly the star player. For the Jaguars, the name that prevails is Trevor Lawrence.

 

The promising quarterback has risen to a level where, while not quite elite, he has undoubtedly established himself as the commanding leader the Jaguars always envisioned he would be. Last season, Trevor Lawrence, then a sophomore, had already clocked in a season alongside Marvin Jones and others who are no longer on the team.

 

Considering this experience, T-Law failed to connect with Christian Kirk, a recent addition to the Jaguars, on two crucial third-down passes during Kirk’s debut game against the Steelers at TIAA during the preseason.

 

Meanwhile, during the 2023-24 season, T-Law has proved to the world that he is a force to be reckoned with. Lawrence’s performance led to 14 interceptions, and he also fumbled the ball, losing possession 7 times.

 

Throughout his three seasons, he has been responsible for 60 turnovers. This season, the Jaguars had 30 turnovers, ranking them the fifth-highest in the NFL for turnovers.

 

During the current season, he completed 21 touchdown passes but also had 14 interceptions. In the final five games, despite being hampered by a high-ankle sprain, a shoulder injury, and a concussion, he threw seven touchdowns and an equal number of interceptions.

 

Travis Etienne, JR

Chosen with the 25th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft from Clemson University, Travis Etienne Jr. could not participate in his rookie season due to a Lisfranc injury.

 

His remarkable return to form in 2022 suggests a full recovery, showcasing his dynamic athletic abilities and versatility as a running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars. His standout performance has elevated him into discussions as one of the top rushers in the NFL.

 

Etienne has significantly contributed to his team’s offensive prowess, being responsible for nearly a third of the 39 touchdowns scored on offense, tallying a dozen on his account.

 

Etienne’s involvement in the run game is evident, with him carrying the ball on 267 occasions, representing almost 59% of the team’s total 453 rushes. His rushing efficiency averages 3.8 yards per carry, positioning him at 36th among NFL rushers.

 

Josh Allen

Since his integration into the Jaguars’ team in 2019, Allen has truly made his mark. As the prestigious seventh pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s difficult to argue that there could have been a more fitting selection for the team than this outside linebacker.

 

In 2023, Jacksonville Jaguars’ Joshua Allen delivered his most impressive performance. Previously regarded as a reliable selection, Allen made a name for himself this season as a premier defensive force, emerging as one of the top pass rushers across the National Football League.

 

According to Pro Football Focus statistics, Allen leads the league with a win rate of 32.8% regarding genuine pass sets. He shattered the Jaguars’ record for most sacks in a single season by notching 15.5 and then exceeded that impressive tally.

 

Among all players, only T.J. Watt, the esteemed Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, and Trey Hendrickson of the Cincinnati Bengals notched up more quarterback sacks than Allen throughout the season.

 

Furthermore, Allen’s sensational performance tied him with the legacy of the legendary Lawrence Taylor, making him one of only two players since 1982 to record at least 2.5 sacks in four different games within a single season.

 

Foyesade Oluokun

Inside linebacker Foyesade Oluokun ranks third in the AFC at his position, trailing only Roquan Smith of the Baltimore Ravens and Zaire Franklin of the Indianapolis Colts.

 

Ever since Foyesade Oluokun became part of the Jaguars’ roster, he has rapidly evolved into the linchpin of their defensive unit, exhibiting a level of performance at linebacker that the team hasn’t seen since the days of Paul Posluszny.

 

Oluokun, at 28, has navigated a remarkable yet unorthodox journey to acclaim, firmly establishing himself as a leading linebacker in the NFL by 2023 and ensuring the Jaguars have a solid future ahead in this critical position.

 

Darious Williams

The last player who performed his best in the 2023-24 NFL season was Darious Williams. Williams has been in the NFL for six years and has been in the starting lineup for the Jaguars over the previous two seasons.

 

During the Jaguars’ games in London, he notched his initial pair of interceptions. In a triumph against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4, he impressively returned an interception for a 61-yard touchdown. He later seized an interception from Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in the final quarter of their victorious October 8, 2023, matchup.

 

Conclusion

With these players on the Jaguars’ roster, the team will surely improve their performance in the upcoming NFL seasons, especially if they focus on developing these talents more. The following season will be exciting for the Jaguars team and fans alike.
