Just as there are players who do not quite hit the mark in practice or preseason, there are plenty of players who stand out, exceed expectations.

They might be the undrafted rookie who is looking for a chance to shine. They might be the free agent who is down on his luck and finally finds a home.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are in a position where they need all the help they can get. It’s no surprise this is an 0-3 team in the preseason, but that record might be misleading. There are some good things this franchise is doing. And in the midst of free agency, the draft and major change, these players are showing they can play in the NFL.
