Jaguars add some spice on day 3 of the draft.
Round 5, Pick 141
Dazz Newsome is more of a practice squad kind of player but is someone worth taking the chance on. He’s not super fast but has a lot of potential as a kick returner because of his ability to find open lanes. As a receiver, Newsome is strictly a slot guy who struggles at times with contact and prefers to catch with his body rather than his hands.
Round 5, Pick166
Khalil Hebert would add some more depth at running back for the Jaguars. He’s a great inside runner who possesses good speed, acceleration, vision, and balance. He racked up 1,182 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns in 2020. He also averaged an excellent 7.6 yards per attempt. The only issue with Herbert is he isn’t proven in the passing game. Hebert will likely come to be more valuable in the NFL than where he is drafted.
Round 6, Pick 222
Tommy Kramer was a powerful right guard at the collegiate level. It will be interesting to see how he translates to the NFL level because he isn’t super flexible and doesn’t have great mobility but can win with his strength.
Round 7, Pick 243
Josh Ball doesn’t have a lot of experience under his belt but that’s why he’s presented as a seventh-round pick here. He’s another big guy to have on the edge who can be very powerful with his hands.
