The teams in the AFC South underwent quite a few changes this offseason, with the puzzling trade of DeAndre Hopkins shocking fans of the NFL. The Houston Texans essentially sent Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for David Johnson and a second-round selection.

As a result, Deshaun Watson will have to head into next season without his go-to target and will have to deal with a reconfigured receiving corps. Besides Houston, the Indianapolis Colts made a noticeable change at quarterback, signing Philip Rivers to lead the charge on offense.

On the other hand, the Jacksonville Jaguars are heading into their first season with Gardner Minshew as their starting signal-caller. If Minshew can improve upon his impressive rookie campaign, he could secure Jacksonville’s starting job for years to come.

Lastly, the Tennessee Titans are basically running it back from a season ago, retaining both Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. But for all of the teams within the division to take the next step, they’ll need some of their younger players to step into prominent roles next season. In light of that, which second-year players from the AFC South should fans keep an eye on in 2020?
