They’ve filled out their coaching staff, which included the hiring of offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. We can now start looking at the roster and trying to figure out what the team is going to have in 2019 and what they could be adding and what positions they’ll want to be adding to.You can read about the Jaguars salary cap situation right here for now, until the official numbers are released, that’s the best we’ll get.Next up, we will look at the defensive line group.Players under contract in 2019:Calais Campbell:Don’t think we need to say much. His play didn’t drop off at all in 2018 like some expected so I see no reason to think he won’t still be an impact player in 2019.Yannick Ngakoue: Despite his sack number dipping slightly Cam Robinson Jerseys Stitched , Ngakoue was still excellent rushing the passer and being disruptive in the NFL. Towards the end of the season he was Top 5 in the NFL in pressures.Marcell Dareus: Dareus took over full time this year and was a steady workhorse. It was noticeable when he wasn’t in the game.Malik Jackson: While his numbers were down, Jackson was still a solid player in 2018. Abry Jones: Jones is a starting caliber player that is depth right now and a run stuffer. I expect him to have more of a rotational role in 2019.Taven Bryan: The experiment with Bryan at defensive end went on a little too long and probably wasted his rookie season. When he moved back inside he was a lot more noticeable and disruptive, so here’s hoping he can do more of that in 2019.Eli Ankou: Ankou was hurt most of the season, but the Jaguars value his run stopping ability.Michael Hughes: I don’t know much about him!Dawuane Smoot: Smoot was someone a lot of people thought could get cut this season, but once he was healthy he actually started to make a few plays. Maybe the light goes on in 2019.Lyndon Johnson: A late add in the season who flashed a little bit. Potential cap cuts:Malik Jackson: I think Jackson is as good as gone for the Jaguars and overall, they got what they paid for in free agency. Jackson was excellent his first two season in Jacksonville with some drop off playing a little hurt in 2018. His cap figure in 2019 was always likely the cut-away point and doing so saves you $11 million.Marcell Dareus: Dareus is someone I think the Jaguars will approach about restructuring his contract by adding a year to it. The team likes him and he’s done well since being traded.Calais Campbell: We know Campbell has already been informed he will be back in 2019, however I listed him hear because I think the team tries re-do his deal and push some money to 2020.Abry Jones: I don’t think Jones gets cut, but he’s a straight savings of $4 million if they want to. Potential free agent options:I don’t think the Jaguars go after any FA defensive lineman Youth DJ Chark Jerseys , but here’s some names of interest to me.Ezekiel Ansah: Coming off injury so I don’t know that he will be THAT expensive, but he’s someone who would fit right in.Aaron Lynch: Lynch could double up playing some SAM and rushing the passer on third downs.Romeo Okwara: An under-the-radar pass rusher who’s at the sweet spot for age in free agency.Mario Edwards: Versatile defensive lineman who can play end or inside. Depth, more than anything. Jeff Wilson is making the most of his chance in San Francisco's injury-riddled backfield.After starting his rookie season as an undrafted player on the practice squad, Wilson will be thrust into a starting role this week after the latest injury to a 49ers running back.Wilson showed he might be up to the task with a strong performance in his first extensive action as a pro last week in Seattle. He rushed for 61 yards on 15 carries and caught eight passes for 73 yards as one of San Francisco's few bright spots in a loss to the Seahawks.His physical running style sparked the Niners (2-10) out of a sluggish offensive start on a day leading rusher Matt Breida injured his ankle in warmups and managed only limited action."That's his style. That's what got him an opportunity in this league," coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday. "That's what he does best. That's why he's going to make it. I hope he doesn't lose that, for his and our sakes. He runs hard and that's what he does good. Hopefully, we can keep him healthy and he keeps getting better and better."Wilson wasn't supposed to have this big a role as a rookie. He signed with San Francisco as an undrafted rookie out of North Texas last spring and was far down the depth chart at the start of training camp.But projected starter Jerick McKinnon went down with a season-ending knee injury a week before the opener, backup Raheem Mostert then went down with a broken arm on Nov. 1 and now Breida is out this week against Denver with the injured ankle.That has given Wilson a chance to play and show what he can do down the stretch run of a lost season for San Francisco."I'm just trying to do my job DJ Chark Jerseys Stitched ," he said. "I don't have any personal goals. I just love and enjoy playing football. As long as I do that, it will be good for me."Wilson was lightly recruited out of high school and ended up at North Texas, where he ran for 3,204 yards in four seasons. He went undrafted but was attracted to the Niners because of the success running backs coach Bobby Turner has had with unheralded backs during his lengthy career in the NFL.Wilson bulked up a bit since joining the 49ers and has impressed his coaches with a physical running style."You always have to pick and choose your battles," he said. "I'm not just going to run down the middle and just do it willingly. There are certain times you do it and certain times you don't. I'm an aggressive runner."The pleasant surprise for the 49ers has been at how quickly Wilson has adapted to the passing game. He caught just 70 passes in four seasons in college, but showed a good ability to be a threat in the screen game with eight catches last week.He said he's worked extremely hard at improving that aspect of the game and the results have been clear."He's done a great job of learning the offense, running, blocking Gardner Minshew Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , pass routes," quarterback Nick Mullens said. "He can do a little bit of everything and once he got his opportunity, I think everybody saw how hard he runs. That fires me up. He brings it every carry that he's going to get. So, I think Jeff is ready to step in and take that role on for sure."NOTES: Shanahan changed up the practice schedule, having the players come in an hour early and leave earlier in the day. Shanahan said he just wanted a change, although he did notice players being a little more groggy at the opening meeting at 7 a.m. "Sometimes, you've got to yell a little bit more to make sure they're attentive in the early meetings because they're not all drinking as much coffee as the coaches are," he said. ... The Niners signed long snapper Colin Holba to replace the suspended Kyle Nelson. ... Edge rusher Pita Taumoepenu was promoted from the practice squad to replace the injured Dekoda Watson Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , who went on IR. ... Breida (ankle), safety Jaquiski Tartt (stinger), C Weston Richburg (knee) and LT Joe Staley (rest) didn't practice.
