Earlier in November, the Jacksonville Jaguars were fifth in the 2023 NFL Draft order after finishing the month of October with a five-game losing streak. While that changed when the Jaguars won in Week 9, a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday put Jacksonville back in the top five.
With eight weeks left in the 2022 regular season, the Jaguars are back in fifth again.
Through the first 10 weeks, this is the current top 10 of the 2023 NFL Draft currently (strength of schedule tiebreaker in parenthesis):
Houston Texans: 1-7-1 (.522)
Las Vegas Raiders: 2-7 (.471)
Carolina Panthers: 3-7 (.444)
Jacksonville Jaguars: 3-7 (.529)
Chicago Bears: 3-7 (.571)
Houston Texans (via Cleveland Browns): 3-6 (.494)
Pittsburgh Steelers: 3-6 (.516)
The three teams currently at the top of the order — the Texans, Raiders, and Panthers — may all be in the market for a new quarterback in the offseason. That undoubtedly won’t be the case for the Eagles, who own the Saints’ pick and have an MVP candidate at quarterback in Jalen Hurts.
Among the Jaguars’ top needs is a cornerback to play opposite Tyson Campbell, an upgrade along the defensive line, and interior offensive line help.
