Tyrell Adams could fortify the Jacksonville Jaguars’ linebacker corps.
The ‘Jags’ have four selections in the first two rounds of 2021’s draft. There’s a 99.99 percent chance they will use the first overall selection to take quarterback Clemson quarterback. However, it’s unknown what they will do with their other three selections. They could add a linebacker prospect such as Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah or Dylan Moses with the 25th overall selection or even the 33rd overall.
On the other hand, if this Jacksonville team doesn’t feel comfortable parting ways with a draft pick to choose a linebacker, they could target Tyrell Adams of the Houston Texans, who is set to hit the open market this offseason.
Even though Houston’s defense was 30th in total yards and 28th in points allowed in 2020, Adams played at a high level, registering 125 total tackles (five for a loss), two sacks, two forced fumbles, and four passes defensed.
The West Virginia product played in all 16 games last season, starting 12, and might be looking to cash in this offseason. The price for his services may be a bit steep but he could fortify the Jaguars’ linebacker corps if they want to use their early picks in the selection meeting to address other needs.
