The Jacksonville Jaguars take a couple of developmental prospects.
The ‘Jags’ need to start planning for the future and develop prospects that could become starters or provide depth down the road. Last season, guards Andrew Norwell and A.J. Cann, and center Brandon Linder missed time with injuries. Although Tyler Shatley did a solid job and rookie Ben Bartch displayed flashes of talent, the team’s brass needs to replenish their offensive line.
Jackson was Trevor Lawerence’s blindside protector at Clemson but may need to switch to guard in the NFL. The Jaguars could groom him as a swing-tackle due to his flexibility to play different positions at the collegiate level.
The Jaguars have an extra fifth-round selection after trading safety Ronnie Harrison to the Cleveland Browns before the 2020 season. They can use that extra pick to take another safety, more specifically Pitt’s Damar Hamlin.
Daniel Thomas showed promise in his rookie years and Jarrod Wilson should hold one safety spot in 2021. Nevertheless, Hamlin could be a nice developmental prospect that could become an asset if he works on his tackling skills.
