The Jacksonville Jaguars grab two prospects on offense in rounds four and six of the NFL draft, one of which is a head scratcher.
The final day of the 2018 NFL draft is well under way, as the final four rounds have commenced and will signal the end of the event on Saturday evening.
For the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team used their first two picks on players on the offensive side of the ball, in the fourth and sixth rounds. Jacksonville did not have a fifth round selection due to the trade with the Buffalo Bills during last season for Marcell Dareus.
In round four, at pick number 129 overall, the Jaguars selected offensive lineman Will Richardson out of North Carolina State. If Richardson can stay out of trouble, this is a great value pick for the team, that also fills a need. The talent is there for the lineman, but Richardson had suspension issues in college for off the field incidents.
If Richardson stays focused and in the good graces of the team, he could become an important piece to the line for Jacksonville. Richardson is listed and played at right tackle, but possesses the skill set to not only be a swing tackle, but slide into the right guard position if the Jaguars choose to make that move.
In the sixth round, at pick number 203, Jacksonville selected quarterback Tanner Lee from Nebraska. I feel a sixth-rounder is not worth getting overly worked up about, but this pick was bewildering. Lee ranked very low of draft-eligible QB’s, and consistently was turnover and mistake prone behind center in college. Think the team could have gone a different direction at the position, and personally would have chosen Chase Litton over Lee, but Lee will join Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler on the QB depth chart for the Jaguars.
