What Would a Defense Only Draft Look Like for The Jacksonville Jaguars?
Round, 5, Pick 165 – Derrek Tuszka, EDGE, NDSU
At this point in a skill position heavy draft class, the rest of these picks could be seen as a reach but I have an affinity for North Dakota State and I went with one of their Edge rushers in Derrek Tuszka with this pick.
Round, 5, Pick 170 – Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami
The Jaguars get a thumper at linebacker with Shaquille Quarterman who would definitely make his presence on the field known, potentially as a special teams ace.
Round, 6, Pick 189 – Trevis Gipson, Tulsa, EDGE
The Jaguars love length and athleticism that here with Trevis Gipson and his 33 7/8″ arms.
Round, 6, Pick 206 – Jacob Phillips, LSU, LB
Towards the end of the draft, it helps to look at small school athletes who are looking to prove it at a higher level and large school athletes with an impeccable pedigree like Jacob Phillips. The Jacksonville Jaguars receive the latter in this former 4-star (24/7 Sports) High School linebacker who would be seen as a developmental project (which at this stage most are).
Round. 7. Pick 227 – A.J. Green, CB, OSU
As long as he can put up as much of a fight as the Bengals receiver, A.J. Green should fit nicely in a revamped secondary group.
