The Jacksonville Jaguars may have won their preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that does not mean the team played a perfect game. While some players on the roster took advantage of their opportunities, others faltered under the pressure. With that in mind, here are five players on the roster bubble in Week 2 of the preseason.

Fourth-year cornerback Mike Harris' name continues to come up when talking about the Jaguars' roster bubble. It's not because Harris is not talented enough, it's simply because he is not a good fit for head coach Gus Bradley's defense. With the emergence of Demetrius McCray and Jeremy Harris, Mike Harris becomes expendable.

This time last week, Marcel Jensen appeared to be locked in as the team's third tight end. However, after a poor performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the preseason opener, the undrafted rookie has opened the door for other candidates, specifically fellow undrafted free agent D.J. Tialavea. The battle between these two could last for the rest of the preseason.

The Jaguars will likely keep six receivers on the final roster, and with undrafted rookie Allen Hurns lighting it up right now, it places Kerry Taylor firmly on the bubble. Taylor will now battle it out with Chad Bumphis and Lamaar Thomas for the final spot.

Mike Brewster is not in any danger of being cut, but he certainly has to be feeling the pressure after botching two snaps in his first professional start at center. Brewster will remain the starter heading into Week 2, but is still battling Jacques McClendon for the job. It will be interesting to see how Brewster responds during his second go-round Thursday night.

Jacques McClendon was whipped from the start by Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and just about anybody else that lined up across from him. Like Mike Brewster, McClendon is not in any danger of being cut, but he needs to step up his game in Week 2 to remove any doubt. McClendon is battling rookie Brandon Linder for the starting job at right guard and will need to be much better this week if he hopes to remain a starter.
