No. 43: Dave Caldwell

The Jaguars’ defense changed more than any other in the NFL, and it’s largely due to Dave Caldwell’s offseason guts. The general manager bought impact starters Malik Jackson and Prince Amukamara; he drafted impact defenders Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack. He was strident with ownership that coach Gus Bradley deserved another year, despite having lost 75% of his games in three years. It’s an all-in year for Jacksonville’s GM.
