The Jacksonville Jaguars could target these three Alabama players.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will have two first-round selections in the 2021 NFL Draft, the first overall pick and the 25th overall, which they got from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for cornerback Jalen Ramsey in 2019. While they will likely use the top selection on Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrance, there are many players they can target with that second first-round selection and the Crimson Tide will provide a few options.
Alabama is a powerhouse that churns out more NFL players than any other college program. Hence, it wasn’t surprising to see them beat Ohio State in the National Championship, where a few Crimson Tide players solidified their stock as first-round picks.
Running back Najee Harris had a dominating performance, logging 158 total yards and three touchdowns against the Buckeyes. He will likely get his name called in the first round but it’s a player the Jaguars will pass up due to the presence of rookie sensation James Robinson.
DeVonta Smith cemented his place as a top 10 draft pick after hauling in 12 receptions for 215 yards and three touchdowns. While he would look great in Black and Teal, the Jaguars would have to trade up to have a shot at drafting 2020’s Heisman Trophy winner, which may not be feasible.
Even with those two off the Jaguars’ big board, there are three Alabama players they could draft with the 25th overall selection.
