The Jacksonville Jaguars could address their safety, cornerback, and wide receiver needs in free agency. All three positional groups have players that could change the 2021-2022 NFL season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here are three players from each positional group that the Jaguars can fill for 2021.

Safety:

-- Anthony Harris: 5-years, $70 million ($14 million average annual salary)

Cornerback:

-- Brian Poole: 4-years, $32 million ($8 million average annual salary)

-- Mike Hilton: 3-years, $23.5 million ($7.8 million average annual salary)

The Jacksonville Jaguars are not going to be able to sign all nine of these players during the 2021 NFL free agency period. If the Jaguars can sign at least one player out of each of these positional needs it will be a win for them.
