Last season, the jacksonville Jaguars improved under first-year head coach Gus Bradley considerably. That said, if the team really wants to continue their improvement, they will need to nail the later stages of the 2014 NFL Draft. Ladies and gentlemen, here are five day three prospects the Jaguars should target in this year's draft.

It’s no secret the Jaguars need to add depth at both offensive tackle positions. Seantrel Henderson is a fantastic athlete, however, his work ethic is extremely questionable. That said, Gus Bradley is known for getting the most out of his players, and it’s possible he could morph Henderson into a solid tackle.

4. Joe Don Duncan, TE, Dixie State

Marcedes Lewis has been very ordinary for the Jaguars since he was drafted, and it’s time that the team looks for an upgrade at the position. Joe Don Duncan, out of Dixie State, is extremely raw, but with the right coaching, Duncan could blossom.

Despite signing Chris Clemons in free agency, the Jaguars still need to add some more depth to their defensive line. Brent Urban is an amazing physical specimen, however, he is raw and needs to develop. That said, Urban could develop into quite the player in a few seasons.

The Jaguars will almost certainly address the QB position before the third day of the draft, however, the team could still use some depth behind both Chad Henne, and whoever is drafted earlier in the draft. With that in mind, Connor Shaw is well-suited for a backup role, and could be a solid backup option in an emergency.

Although the team has Cecil Shorts, the other receiver spot is a massive question mark. Justin Blackmon is running out of chances to straighten himself out, and Ace Sanders is better suited for the slot. That said, by picking up the 6-foot-6 Brandon Coleman in the later rounds could pay big dividends for the team.
