Jacksonville Jaguars: Already looking ahead to the NFL Draft
With no playoff invitation this season and a record that could get worse this weekend at Oakland, Jaguars fans have turned their attention to the NFL Draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars fans have gotten to that point again. The time of year where the playoffs aren’t on the agenda and the thoughts have shifted to next season and the 2020 NFL Draft in April. With two selections in the first round and an early second-round choice, Jacksonville has a chance to help itself early and fortify a reeling roster.
Plenty of how the front office prepares for the draft has to do with who will be making these picks and which players are retained on the roster and added through free agency.
"“Thanks to the Jalen Ramsey trade, the Jaguars have two first-round picks. That’s good because there are needs at nearly every position,” writes Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “The biggest unknown, however, is who will be in charge of making the picks. Owner Shad Khan might clean house after another disappointing season, potentially dumping executive VP Tom Coughlin, GM Dave Caldwell, and coach Doug Marrone.”"
It should make for an “interesting” offseason. Right now, the Jaguars are projected to have the No. 7 and 21 picks in the first round.
That said, here are the areas of greatest concern for the Jaguars this coming offseason.
