We're taking a look at the best four players to have ever played for each of the 32 NFL franchises. Let's reveal the four greatest Jaguars according to our Bookies.com algorithm...

The Jacksonville Jaguars are entering their second year having held the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. They selected Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence in the 2021 draft and Georgia’s Travon Walker in the 2022 draft, building a young core on both offense and defense.

Not only have they built through the NFL Draft, but free agency has been successful as well. Christian Kirk signed a lucrative deal and re-signing Marvin Jones gives their young QB two good weapons in the passing game. 

There are lots of good players that have played for the Jaguars that did not make our list of the top four in franchise history. Star running back Maurice Jones-Drew narrowly missed out despite eight incredible seasons in Jacksonville. 

Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Ring of Honor

Player HOFm wAV Bookies Score
Jimmy Smith 73.63 94 83.815
Tony Boselli 80.68 66 73.34
Mark Brunell 45.23 96 70.615
Fred Taylor 52.9 88 70.45

No. 1 - Jimmy Smith

Originally drafted by the Cowboys in 1992, Smith started his 11-year career with the Jaguars just three years later. Smith led the league in receptions with 116 in 1999, which earned him one of his five Pro Bowl honors. 

He helped the Jaguars make playoff appearances in five seasons. Smith was a reliable weapon for the Jags; he had nine seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards. He also had eight seasons of six or more TDs, making him an incredible player throughout his career with Jacksonville.

No. 2 - Tony Boselli

While he only played in the league for seven seasons, Tony Boselli was a great offensive lineman for the Jaguars. The three-time All-Pro first-team left tackle made appearances in five Pro Bowls during his short time in the NFL. 

His impressive skill on the offensive line helped lead the Jaguars to three playoff berths. Boselli’s incredible blocking ability had a big impact on the success of the Jaguars offense, which helped Smith and quarterback Mark Brunell.

No. 3 - Mark Brunell

Mark Brunell had a long career in the NFL, spending nine of his 17 years in Jacksonville. In 1996, he led the league in passing yards for the Jaguars with 4,367 in total, as well as leading the league in sacks taken with 50. 

The Jaguars’ all-time passing leader achieved three Pro Bowl honors during his time in the league, while holding a positive winning record of 63-54. In his career, Brunell was responsible for 16 comebacks and 22 game-winning drives.

No. 4 - Fred Taylor

In his rookie season in 1998, Taylor had 1,223 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns and finished third in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting to Randy Moss and Peyton Manning. 

After his rookie campaign, he had six more seasons with over 1,000 rushing yards, earning him just one Pro Bowl appearance in 2007. Arguably one of his best seasons came in 2000 when he averaged 107.6 rushing yards per game, which led the NFL that season.


Methodology

To determine the Ring of Honor for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bookies.com utilized the website, ProFootballReference.com to gather for each player: 

  1. Career Weighted Approximate Value (Career AV)
  2. Hall of Fame Monitor score

After those findings, we averaged the two data sets to develop our rankings for the players to determine the top four players included in the Ring of Honor.
