Rayshawn Jenkins can give the Jacksonville Jaguars’ safety room a boost.
The Jaguars have so many roster needs to address this offseason that they can take any route they want and still fix many of those holes. If they want to upgrade their safety group, they could take TCU safety Trevon Moehrig with their second first-round selection in 2021’s draft, the second one they got from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
On the other hand, if they want to allocate the 25th overall pick to a different position group, they could target Chargers safety Rayshawn Jenkins, who is set to become a free agent this offseason and will garner plenty of attention for his services.
Originally a fourth-round in 2017’s draft, the Miami product slowly made his way up to the Chargers starting lineup and has started 31 games in the last two seasons. In that span, he’s logged 92 total tackles (six for a loss), eight passes defensed, and five interceptions.
The ‘Jags’ need to find someone to start next to Jarrod Wilson in 2021. Although Daniel Thomas showed promise before an arm injury ended his 2020 season, the team has to bolster the safety position, and signing Jenkins would accomplish that.
