Training camp begins this coming weekend, and thousands upon thousands of Jaguars fans will make the trek to the Jacksonville Municipal Stadium practice fields to get sunburn and take in the action. We at JagNation are going to better prepare you by listing the new players on the roster by number, and giving you a very brief analysis.

So you think you know your Jaguars? Real quick, who’s donning the apparel of #99? No, not Stroud, try on the name Horrocks for size. How ‘bout #19? He may look like Ernest Wilford, but it’s not. His name is Jeron and he’s from Jacksonville. Pay attention because maybe one or more of these guys mentioned could be in the Jaguars ring of honor in 20 years. Well, maybe not, but you’ll at least know who they are over the next few weeks.


Some of the newest numbers and faces you'll see are:
