The Jacksonville Jaguars must revamp their defensive line.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are entering the 2021 offseason with plenty of holes to fill. It’s almost a given they will use the first overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft to take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, but what about the rest of the roster? After all, the team is more than just one signal-caller away from contending and need to add talent to most position groups, including the interior defensive line.
The Jaguars drafted DaVon Hamilton in the third round of last year’s draft. He made his way into the starting lineup and was arguably the team’s best defensive tackle before a knee injury ended his 2020 season prematurely. Even if he’s fully healthy, which he will likely be, the Jaguars need to add reinforcements to their front four.
Undrafted free agent defensive tackle Doug Costin also started nine games for Jacksonville this past season and should be even better in year two. Nevertheless, the team needs depth. Taven Bryan hasn’t turned out into the player the ‘Jags’ expected when they made him a first-round pick in 2018 and they could use this opportunity to bring in an impact player to take his place.
Free agency won’t offer many options, but there are a few defensive tackles worth a look, here are the best three.
