Jacksonville Jaguars could follow the blueprint Bengals used in 2011’s draft
An important decision awaits the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have a 1-10 record, are at the cellar of the AFC South and only the New York Jets currently have a worse winning record. Also, they lack a franchise quarterback. For the time being, veteran Mike Glennon is their starter, but he isn’t the solution at the position and neither is Gardner Minshew II. This team needs a signal-caller that can elevate his teammates and make everyone around him better. That player isn’t currently on the roster.
The next Jaguars general manager will be entrusted to find their quarterback of the future and will likely use the draft to acquire him. Jacksonville currently holds ten draft selections and one of them is the second overall pick in 2021’s Player Selection Meeting. Projecting that Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be gone by the time they are on the clock, they will have a chance to take Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields or BYU’s Zach Wilson.
However, the ‘Jags’ have another first-round selection and could opt to pass up drafting a quarterback with the second overall pick and target Kyle Trask or any other quarterback with their second first-round pick. This would be an unorthodox approach to find a signal-caller but it’s one the Cincinnati Bengals used with success in 2011.
