The Jacksonville Jaguars will have plenty of ammo in 2021’s draft.

The Jacksonville Jaguars currently have eleven picks, including the number one overall pick, in the 2021 NFL draft. Here’s the breakdown:

Round 1: The Jaguars have their own pick, the first overall, and the one they got from the  Los Angeles Rams when they traded cornerback Jalen Ramsey in the middle of the 2019 season. This pick will not be determined until after the Rams have been knocked out of the NFL playoffs, but it’s currently projected to be the 21st overall.

Round 2: They hold the 33rd overall pick, and the one the Minnesota Vikings gave them, the 45th overall, in exchange for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue.

Round 3: This selection is going to be the 65th overall.

There will likely be compensatory picks at the end of the third, fourth, fifth, and/or sixth rounds, so the overall pick number will not be determined until all compensatory picks are awarded by the NFL.

Round 4: The ‘Jags’ have their own fourth-round pick and the one they obtained from Ramsey’s trade.

Round 5: They hold two fifth-round selections, their selection and the one they got from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for safety Ronnie Harrison.

Round 6: This Jacksonville team doesn’t have a sixth-round selection in 2021 after trading theirs to the Tennessee Titans for linebacker Kamalei Correa.

Round 7: When the Jaguars traded for Correa, they also got the Titans’ 2021 seventh-round pick, so they currently have two selections in the seventh round.
