Jaguars nowhere to be found on Pro Football Focus’ top 101 players list

It was a disappointing season across the board for Jacksonville in 2021.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence was held back (partially by his own mistakes and partially by the play of those around him), and the receiving corps ultimately disappointed after being decimated by injuries. Then on defense, the team showed improvement by the end of the season but was far from good enough to make up for everything else.

After registering a league-worst 3-14 finish, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Jaguars didn’t have any players among the league’s best. On Pro Football Focus’ list of the top 101 players in the NFL this year, Jacksonville was M.I.A.

It’s certainly not a surprise that there were no offensive players on this list. The highest-graded player that saw significant game time was receiver Laquon Treadwell, earning a 71.9 grade from PFF.

Defensively, Josh Allen could have had an argument to be here. His 78.6 season grade puts him within the range of some of the lower-graded players on the top 101. He finished with 7.5 sacks and a career-high 71 tackles, but he had problems with inconsistency. He had some huge games, but there were others where he was virtually a non-factor.

It’s not groundbreaking to say that bad teams tend to not have elite players, but this team’s lack of bona fide stars highlights how bad the roster situation has gotten. Jags fans can only hope the team isn’t omitted from this list next season.
