Round 2, 33rd overall
Jacksonville has been missing an effective tight end on their offense for a while. They had their guy in Mercedes Lewis but made the mistake of releasing him and letting the Green Bay Packers get their hands on him.
Florida’s Kyle Pitts would be the easy selection here but he should be long gone by the time the Jaguars pick in the second round, let alone with their 21st overall selection. Pat Freiermuth is the second-best route to go here. Freiermuth is just as good as a prospect as Pitts is, he just isn’t quite as versatile or as fast. But Freiermuth, who is referred to as “Baby Gronk”, certainly earns that nickname. He’s just as big and strong as Rob Gronkowski and plays just as much of an aggressive game.
Round 2, 46th overall
The Jaguars need help across their entire defensive line. They desperately need an interior defensive lineman who can help be a run stuffer. There isn’t really a clear number one defensive tackle in this draft but Jay Tufele will likely be that first guy off of the board.
Tufele is a great athlete with a quick change of direction for his size. He’s a great block shedder and is versatile against both the run and the pass.
Round 3, 65th overall
The Jaguars are still unsure at the position of cornerback and 2020 first-round pick, C.J. Henderson, is very well not their guy—or at least their full-time starter.
Paulson Adebo is an underrated cornerback prospect in this draft. He’s got a prototypical size and plays a physical game. His ball-skills are tremendous and he could develop into a serious ball-hawk at an NFL level.
