    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Like the Titans, the <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac" target="_new">Jacksonville Jaguars</a> could really use a reliable and versatile downfield threat. A lack of explosive plays is an issue the team must address.</p> <p>If the Jaguars could add any one player in the NFL to their team, either <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5528" target="_new">Larry Fitzgerald</a> or <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4461" target="_new">Andre Johnson</a> would be a good choice. (I'm leaving out <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2622" target="_new">Steve Smith</a> because he's a few years older than those two.)</p> <p>The Jaguars, though, will need to do a lot of work this offseason to fortify their lines on both sides of the ball if they are to return to the sort of physical mentality they want as their style and reputation.</p> <p><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3543" target="_new">Albert Haynesworth</a> could be a huge help to the Jaguars' defense, particularly if he could spark a return to form by <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3537" target="_new">John Henderson</a>.</p> <p>But I lean toward the offensive line where the Jaguars will be looking for a new left tackle to anchor a line they want to push people around.</p> <p><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1230" target="_new">Walter Jones</a> just turned 35. So my thinking is to sift through the league's best young left tackles -- <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4466" target="_new">Jordan Gross</a> has six years of experience, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11246" target="_new">Ryan Clady</a>, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8455" target="_new">Michael Roos</a> and <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10448" target="_new">Joe Thomas</a> all have less than that.</p> <p>I invite you to chime in with comments here or notes to <a href="http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/mailbagESPN?event_id=21417" target="_blank">my mailbag</a>. After I see what you have to say, I will make a plus-one selection for the Jaguars by week's end.</p>
