General manager Dave Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley have done a tremendous job of adding and developing talent for the Jacksonville Jaguars since their arrival in 2013. With a combined 17 draft picks in the past two seasons, there are undoubtedly some players who will be pushed off the roster. With that in mind, let's take a look at five Jaguars players on the roster bubble during training camp.
Mike Harris played well last season, but at just 5-foot-10 and 188 pounds, he has never been an ideal fit for Gus Bradley's defense. With the emergence of second-year cornerback Demetrius McCray and with rookie Aaron Colvin waiting in the wings, there might not be a spot to keep Harris around.
If the Jaguars are serious about sitting rookie Blake Bortles this season, then Ricky Stanzi will likely make the team as the No. 2 quarterback behind Chad Henne. However, if Bortles continues to impress and Stanzi struggles in the preseason, then the former Kansas City Chief could find himself on the bubble.
Expectations were high for Josh Evans after he started 11 games as a rookie in 2013. However, offseason foot surgery has slowed his development and Winston Guy has emerged in his absence. Evans has closed the gap slightly, but was listed as the third free safety behind Guy and Sherrod Martin on the team's first unofficial depth chart, released Monday. It's safe to say the former sixth-round pick is on the bubble.
Mike Brown was a reliable target for Chad Henne last season, hauling in 32 receptions for 446 yards and two touchdowns. However, the Jaguars made it clear they were looking to upgrade the wide receiver position after drafting Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. That move coupled with the emergence of undrafted rookie Allen Hurns has placed Brown firmly on the bubble.
Chris Prosinski is a good athlete, but he is nothing more than a special teams player. In the end, Prosinski's lack of ability and versatility make this former Gene Smith draft pick worthy of a spot on the bubble.
