The 2015 Jaguars draft was full of excellent selections by general manager Dave Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley. The Jags did a good of addressing needs with high value selections and they managed to make the 2015 NFL Draft look like an easy exercise for a team that is trending upward.
It’s an exciting time to be a Jaguars fan with a 2015 Jaguars draft that promises to turn year three of this rebuild into a productive building year after going 7-25 over the last two seasons.
So, without further ado, the 2015 Jaguars draft class:
Round 1, Pick 3) Dante Fowler Jr., DE, Florida
Round 2, Pick 36) T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
Round 3, Pick 67) A.J. Cann, G, South Carolina
Round 4, Pick 104) James Sample, S, Louisville
Round 5, Pick 139) Rashad Greene, WR, Florida State
Round 6, Pick 180) Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State
Round 7, Pick 220) Neal Sterling, WR, Monmouth
Round 7, Pick 229) Ben Koyack, TE, Notre Dame
The Jaguars absolutely stole Greene in the fifth round, waiting patiently to add the wide receiver they wanted while addressing other needs with high value selections in rounds one through four.
Sample is the selection to watch for the Jaguars in 2015, battling to start at free safety and likely a key special teamer as well.
Obviously, Dante Fowler Jr. is the big name for the Jaguars in the 2015 NFL draft. Some people considered him the best player in the draft and not just the best pass rusher in the draft. The Jaguars couldn’t be happier to have him fall in their lap at third overall.
The latter half of the draft was particularly kind to the Jaguars. Bennett was a major highlight to go with Greene and the Jags also took a chance on two big guys who could develop into receivers in the seventh round.
On the whole, these guys represent a future class of Jacksonville Jaguars that will help move the team forward. Whether as depth, role players, practice squad members, or starters, there is plenty of talent coming to Jacksonville this weekend.
