Why sign him: Moncrief scores. He averages a touchdown on every 8.4 catches. That’s better than A-Rob. Robinson averages a score on every 9.2 receptions. Moncrief (6-foot-2, 221 pounds) also has the frame to give Bortles a physical player with a large catch radius.
The Jaguars would still likely use their first-round pick on a receiver, but Moncrief would add a different skill set than what second-year veterans Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole bring to the offense.
Contract suggestion: Four years, $16 million with $6 million guaranteed.
Remaining cap space: $17 million.
Overall: The Jaguars would address their three biggest weaknesses with the trio. They would still have $17 million to roll over to 2019 to help with future contract extensions. None of these players eliminates the chance of a high draft pick at their position, but would cushion the void. That would help in case the right quarterback falls to the Jaguars at the right spot in the first three rounds. The Jaguars could then use their fourth-round choice on finding a replacement for nickel corner Aaron Colvin. The remaining three picks could be spent on linebacker, running back and safety.
