Jacksonville Jaguars 2021 5-round mock draft: Urban Meyer edition
The Jacksonville Jaguars add depth in the middle of the draft.
The Jaguars will have two selections in every round but the third. They will have the opportunity to upgrade pretty much every position group on the roster. After bolstering both the offensive and defensive line, they can now turn their attention to the secondary.
Tyson Campbell has the prototypical body to play cornerback in the NFL and pretty good athleticism. Last season with the Bulldogs, he logged 29 total tackles, five pass deflections, and one interception. The ‘Jags’ should target him if he’s available when they’re on the clock in the third round.
Cornerbacks Sidney Jones, D.J. Hayden, and Greg Mabin are set to become free agents. While this Jacksonville team could bring some of them back, they could also use the opportunity to revamp their cornerback room. After picking Tyson Campbell in the third round, they double down and add Aaron Robinson in the fourth. The UCF product had a solid 2020 season and has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl. He had 31 total tackles and six passes defensed for the Knights this past season.
The Jaguars have a stud in James Robinson. In his rookie season, the Illinois State standout burst onto the scene and reached the most scrimmage yards by an undrafted running back. On the other hand, the team’s brass needs to find him a capable backup if they want to keep him fresh.
Last season, Robinson missed the last two games of the season with an ankle injury. While the ‘Jags’ can re-sign Chris Thompson or add a free agent, they should also target Khalil Herbert, who could provide insurance in case Robinson missed time once again. The Hokies running back has declared for the draft and could provide nice value in the fourth round.
