Found January 29, 2013 on DraftAce:

1. Defensive End The Jacksonville Jaguars sent eight different defensive ends onto the field in 2012 in an effort to find someone who could get to the quarterback. All eight men failed, which means significant changes are coming this offseason. This will likely be the position the address with the No. 2 overall pick, potentially targeting Bjoern Werner or Damontre Moore. 2. Offensive Line Eugene Monroe has developed into a strong left tackle, but he can’t keep Blaine Gabbert on his feet by himself. Cameron Bradfield and Guy Whimper tried, and failed, to win the right tackle job this season and a new face will likely be added to the mix this offseason. The could also be looking for a new center if 35-year-old Brad Meester is not re-signed. 3. Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon will be expected to take the next step in his sophomore year, but more help is needed. Cecil Shorts has shown some promise, but he is better suited to play in the slot. If the Jaguars could add another flanker to pair with Blackmon on the outside, their receiving corps would start to look promising. Note: I intentionally left quarterback off this list. Yes, Blaine Gabbert has struggled but we have to remember that he entered after his junior year when no one believed he was actually ready. The Jaguars mishandled him as a rookie which likely stunted his development. He deserves another year before being labeled a bust.
