The Jacksonville Jaguars have to be pleased with the impressive performances from a number of possible 2016 NFL Draft picks in the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine.
Heading into the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine, there was little consensus about what the Jacksonville Jaguars should do with the fifth overall pick. From Joey Bosa falling to fifth overall to Jalen Ramsey as a perfect fit to other considerations like Noah Spence, Myles Jack, or even DeForest Buckner. The options were many but ill defined.
Following the combine, which wraps up on Monday, there will be a clearer picture on just how great some of the options could be for the Jaguars.
So far, there has only been good news. Some players have really increased their stock and others have fallen, but for the most part the Jags have seen the players they may possibly pick really excel at the combine. They come away winners because so many of the prospects could be excellent fits for the Jags and the measurables from the combine further cemented this.
A plethora of candidates established themselves as contenders for the Jags’ first round pick, but it is also important to consider who could be available early in the second round and there are plenty of players who could be capable additions there as well. only 31 of the players at the combine this year can be picked in the first round, so a longer look at players who could fall to the second or even third round is beneficial for the Jags.
Looking over the player winners of the scouting combine, as compiled by Bucky Brooks at NFL.com, it isn’t tough to see a future with the Jaguars for a number of these players.

There’s a lot of potential out there for the Jags, and if they can adequately address key defensive positions, they may find themselves with a much improved team capable of improving on the 5-11 record set in 2015.
