an opposing team's scout sizes up the Jaguars

"They have questions on the offensive line, but the good thing is they have Fred Taylor and Mark Brunell behind those guys, plus good receivers. So they still have playmakers along with a lot of speed, especially with R. Jay Soward. They haven't had an effective third receiver in some time, but he can be it....

Jonathan Quinn has to be ready, because Brunell has been nicked the last couple of years, and that was when the line was more stable....

I think they'll miss [offensive lineman] Ben Coleman, who they could have re-signed for about $1 million a year....

Carnell Lake [out for the year with a stress fracture in his left foot] was a leader in the secondary. He made their cornerbacks better....

Donovin Darius is a big hitter, but he needs to improve his tackling....

Hardy Nickerson is an upgrade at middle linebacker, and with Kevin Hardy on the outside, they have their fastest linebacking corps ever....

On the line Tony Brackens is their best pass rusher, but I don't know how effective I the other players will be."
