The Jaguars would be much more successful considering re-drafts

With the 226th overall pick, the Jaguars select S Jalen Mills…

Original pick: DE Jonathan Woodard

Jonathan Woodard got off to an unfortunate start to his professional career after tearing his Achilles tendon in team workouts before the start of his rookie season. Spending time on the Falcons, Dolphins, and Bills’ practice squads, Woodard has only 10 total tackles and one sack in his career. It’s always tough to come back from an Achilles injury because you have to find your rhythm again so it’s difficult to tell how better his career could’ve gone if he was healthy from the start.

An impact player available at 226th overall was safety Jalen Mills. He’s moved between cornerback and safety in his career in Philadelphia but has held solid numbers thus far. In 56 games, Mills has five interceptions, 249 total tackles, four quarterback hits, and 1.5 sacks. During his time with the Eagles, he also has one super bowl championship.

It hurts to think how talented the Jaguars secondary could have been if they had Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye and Tashaun Gipson.


I strongly believe that Jaguars would have a super bowl ring right now had they kept their star players and drafted better. Of course, had we gone back in time without knowing how these players turned out, we might not know any better. But for the sake of this project, we know the Jaguars could’ve easily drafted a stronger team.

Next. Jacksonville Jaguars should be excited about their rookie defensive tackles. dark
