The Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense could be better with any of these two.
Hindsight is 20/20 and nobody knew how much of a playmaker undrafted free agent James Robinson would end up becoming. Had the Jaguars knew, they wouldn’t have waited after the draft to sign him and the same is true for other squads. If they had been aware of how talented the Illinois State standout was, they would’ve nabbed him in the players’ selection process.
The fact Leonard Fournette was still in Jacksonville at the time of 2020’s draft made Edwards-Helaire selection less plausible: Nevertheless, teams should never pass up good players, that’s what the Kansas City Chiefs took another LSU Tiger with the 32nd pick.
As good as Laviska Shenault Jr. has been for the Jaguars, Tee Higgins has been even better for the Cincinnati Bengals. While the Colorado standout has hauled in 29 receptions for 324 yards and one touchdown, the Clemson product has caught 33 passes for 488 yards and three touchdowns.
Higgins is quickly becoming Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s favorite target and is the perfect complement for veteran Tyler Boyd. If the Jaguars had selected Higgins instead of Chaisson, they could’ve used their second-round selection in a defender. Since there was a dearth of pass-rushers late in the first round, the team’s brass could’ve addressed their secondary.
