Good-bye to the days when the Jaguars entered Draft Week with urgency, knowing they had to find several immediate starters and their organization was a haven for multiple undrafted free agents to squeeze onto the opening-day roster.

Welcome to the New Jaguars Way, when a healthy sketch of the starting lineup can be accomplished in mid-March … hours into free agency, six weeks before the draft and nearly six months before the season opener.

It shows how well positioned they were exiting last year’s AFC championship game (core players under contract) and how busy they were since the Monday’s free agent negotiating period.

Whether you believe the flurry of additions – and departures – have made the Jaguars better, the final judgment is months away. But credit the front office with again being pro-active. They knew what they wanted.

Although the Jaguars did not announce any additions on Wednesday, reports and league sources have linked them to six additions: Left guard Andrew Norwell (five years, $30 million guaranteed), receiver Donte Moncrief (one year, $7 million), cornerback D.J. Hayden (three years, $9.5 million guaranteed), tight end Niles Paul, safety Cody Davis and safety/cornerback Don Carey. Receiver Marqise Lee is also expected to re-sign.

The contracts will be signed once physical examinations are completed, possibly as early as Thursday morning.

In Norwell, the Jaguars feel they upgraded an offensive line that helped lead the league in rushing and allowed only 24 sacks. In Moncrief/Lee, they feel the duo will negate the decision to let Allen Robinson walk. And in Hayden, they feel he can play the same role as Aaron Colvin covering the slot receiver.

Paul, Davis and Carey are all projected to be back-ups and special teams core players.

Additionally, the notion the Jaguars may sit out the first wave of free agency in order to save cash and cap space for 2019 – and extensions for cornerback Jalen Ramsey, pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue and linebacker Myles Jack – proved off-base. The organization is confident they can make the required roster nip and tucks next March to equal parts retain the aforementioned trio and still have flexibility to add outside help.

The Jaguars operated this week with dual mindsets – “Win in the now,” and “Win in the future.”

Norwell represents both – he is now a first-team All Pro, expected to immediately upgrade the line, and later since he is only 26 years old. Moncrief represents the now – he is on a one-year contract to prove his worth. Lee and Hayden fall somewhere in between – contracts that are likely set up as two-year deals.

But as the additions of Paul and Carey show, the Jaguars will continue to work on the back of the roster and improve their special teams. Needs on the first or second lines of the depth chart, though, still exist. Among them:

Pass-catching tight end: Paul (68 catches in 82 games for the Redskins) will join Marcedes Lewis, Ben Koyack (once he signs his tender) and James O’Shaughnessy on the roster. But if this week’s moves point to one thing, it is tight end in round 1 of the draft (No. 29 overall). Moncrief specializes in working the perimeter (stop routes/go patterns) and Lee is a shallow cross guy. The Jaguars need to add a tight end who can threaten teams down the middle of the field. ESPN reported that Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will visit the Jaguars on Thursday.

Strong-side linebacker: Paul Posluszny’s retirement likely means Jack becomes the every-down middle linebacker after playing base-down situations at strong-side last year. Second-year player Blair Brown is in the mix, but the Jaguars – if not during the later waves of free agency – could focus on this spot in the draft.

Back-up quarterback: Blake Bortles is the only quarterback under contract. Chad Henne has been Bortles’ back-up, but remains unsigned. If the Jaguars want to draft a quarterback, do they feel comfortable with him being one snap away from playing? If not, the available passers include A.J. McCarron, Derek Anderson, Geno Smith, Matt Moore, Drew Stanton and EJ Manuel.

Reserve offensive tackle: The addition of Norwell allows the Jaguars to move away from a plug-and-play guard and possibly toward a player who can be the swing tackle in 2018 (since left tackle Cam Robinson and right tackle Jermey Parnell both missed time last year) and then become a starter in 2019 if they want to move on from Parnell.
