In the previous decade, being a Jaguar fan hasn’t been easy. The Jaguars as a franchise has not been able to put a consistent product on the field for the fans to celebrate. Instead, they have consistently sold us hope for the future. Outside of the 2017 season, the Jaguars have had a run of six seasons of 10 or more losses. Finishing the decade with a record of 51-109.
Through the difficult times, we have had a number of players this decade that have stood out that. Here are the best players for the Jaguars of this decade.
Calais Campbell Defensive End (2017-2019)
One of the most important free agency signings in Franchise history. Campbell often referred to as the “Mayor” impact was immediate as he helped the Jaguars reach the AFC championship game. Not to mention, He broke the franchise all-time record for sacks in a season, made three pro bowls, an all-pro, and a Walter Payton Man of the Year.
Paul Posluszny Middle Linebacker (2011-2017)
Posluszny was the model player of consistency. He was constantly one of the better tackler’s linebackers in the NFL. He had 5 seasons of 100 tackles or more. He made one pro bowl in 2013 but was a bright spot on some pretty bad teams before his retirement at the end of 2017.
Maurice Jones-Drew Running Back (2010-2013)
Jones-Drew was the offense for the Jaguars starting of the decade. For example, in 2011 Jones-Drew Lead the NFL in rushing with 1606 yards and accounted for 47 percent of the team’s yards. During this time, Jones-Drew notch two pro bowl and all pro Appearances (2010&2011).
Jalen Ramsey Cornerback (2016-2019)
