Despite possessing one of the NFL's most threadbare rosters, the Jacksonville Jaguars managed to show a bit of fight in the 2013-14 season. Although the Jaguars finished the season 4-12, the team actually played inspired football toward the end of the season. If they can nail the 2014 NFL Draft, the team could take another step forward next season. With that said, here are the five NFL Draft prospects who Jaguars fans need to know.

Although Cecil Shorts has been rock solid for the Jaguars, the team lacks a true weapon across from him as Justin Blackmon can't get out of his own way, and Ace Sanders is meant for more of a third-receiver role. Brandon Coleman is massive, and at 6-foot-6, he possesses the raw talent to eventually make a big impact.

Marcedes Lewis has been nothing more than average for the Jaguars for a long time now, and this is the year the team should look for his replacement. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a tight end out of Washington, struggles with blocking like many of the other tight ends in this year's class. However, he has the playmaking ability to thrive in today's NFL game.

Although they signed Zane Beadles in free agency, the Jaguars still need help at the offensive guard position as Beadles really wasn't worth the contract, and Will Rackley isn't meant to be a starter. Cyril Richardson certainly isn't the complete package from a development standpoint, but he has enough potential to eventually be a solid interior lineman.

2. Adrian Hubbard

Despite never really living up to the expectations laid out for him while playing for Alabama, Adrian Hubbard is a very talented player. While Hubbard will probably never be an elite linebacker, there's no doubt that when put in the right situation, he has the talent to succeed.

It's no secret that the Jacksonville Jaguars need a quarterback. However, it remains to be seen exactly when the team is actually going to pick up a quarterback in May's draft. That said, if the team decides to wait until the later rounds to address the position, David Fales would be a solid addition. Fales isn't spectacular from an arm strength perspective, but his accuracy and timing are among the best in this draft class.
