Biggest storyline: Can the Jaguars reload, especially on offense, this season?
Names to watch this season: senior OL/DL Tyrain Smith, senior OL/DL Charles Henderson, senior RB/LB Dajhon McNeal
Biggest holes to fill: The Jaguars will look to replace nearly its entire starting offensive skills group with the exception of McNeal.
EDGY's early take: Julian was able to come within a handful of points from being a 6-3 squad, including an 8-6 loss to Goode in Week 2. If the Jaguars can reload a bit on offense, they have a chance to again challenge in the Windy City Conference this fall.
