Prior to the start of every NFL season, we usually have a few teams who we already know are likely going to be battling it out for the first pick in next year’s draft. There are always a handful of teams in various stages of rebuilding, including a few who are going to be rolling with a lot of rookies to start the season. The 2021 NFL season is not going to be any different in that regard, but it is always interesting who watch teams who have committed to a rebuild go into a new season with a new QB and some young pieces that are going to be either hit or miss. That is what we will be looking at with the Jacksonville Jaguars this season. Can their new crop of rookies deliver the goods? Let’s try to answer that question so you can plan your bets against their NFL odds.

The Jaguars in 2020
Given how they offloaded talent last offseason, we all thought that the Jacksonville Jaguars were setting themselves up for tanking the season. Imagine out surprise when they came out and won the opening game of the year. That, though, was the only taste of victory they got the entire season, as they went on to lose 15 in a row.
When the Jaguars decided to roll with Gardner Minshew as their starting QB. The thought was that they did not have much desire to win and were in fact announcing that they were in the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes. This is not a slight on Minshew, and while he is well liked in Jacksonville, he is not yet at a point where he can lead a team to a Super Bowl.
Odds to Make the Playoffs and Win the Super Bowl
It has been an interesting season for the Jaguars, starting with hiring Urban Meyer as their new head coach. Meyer comes in with an impressive college football resume, but how that will translate to the NFL remains to be seen. He may, though, be well suited to working with QB Trevor Lawrence straight out of college, not to mention rookie RB Travis Etienne. The Jags picked up some nice pieces in the draft, while also experimenting with Tim Tebow as a tight end. This team has a favorable schedule to start the season, with games against the Texans, Broncos, and Bengals in the opening month of the season. If they can pick up some wins there, this young group might just get some confidence. Can they make the playoffs, though?
After going 1-15 in 2020, you have to believe that the only way to go is up for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have some decent pieces in place, but their success is going to depend on how quickly Trevor Lawrence adapts to life in the NFL. If he can replicate what he did with Clemson, he is going to give his team a chance to win every single week. The reality here, though, is that the Jacksonville Jaguars are still very much a work in progress. I think it is asking a little too much to have this team go from a 1-win season to a playoff spot.
It also means that we are looking at a team that is not going to get anywhere near the Lombardi Trophy, which is why they are in at +8000 to win the Super Bowl.
