The Jacksonville Jaguars would have had the hottest presence in Mobile, Alabama but Urban Meyer and his staff did not make the trip out.
It’s been a long and confusing 2020 college football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the unexpected implications that could (and did) arise from it. The way teams scouted draft prospects was drastically changed. Many scouts were forced to do their jobs remotely and the Senior Bowl is providing them with their first chance to see players in person.
Is this the right decision for the Jaguars?
We still don’t have confirmation on who will be joining Meyer’s staff in Jacksonville and this could easily be the main reason we aren’t seeing them openly represented in Mobile. Meyer has a reputation for being a program-builder and that’s exactly what he’s doing with his time in Jacksonville.
Meyer has been taking his time and doing his due diligence in order to give the Jaguars the best coaching staff going forward.
Players who should be on the Jaguar’s radar…
Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
Kadarius Toney is making a name for himself this week in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama. The talented playmaker is cementing his case to be selected in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. he is so quick and can easily change directions to create separation. Lately, many draft analysts have even been slating Toney to be drafted by the Jaguars with the 25th overall pick.
Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma
Headed into the Senior Bowl, center Creed Humphrey was already one of the top offensive lineman prospects. After two days of practice, he’s been one of the most impressive, if not the MOST impressive, prospects down in Mobile. In one on one drills, Humphrey has been an absolute brick wall, showing his dominance and his power as a blocker. His draft stock should be skyrocketing right now if it hasn’t already.
Patrick Jones II, EDGE, Pittsburgh
Patrick Jones II is ranked by most as a day-two prospect. He’s a powerful and effective pass rush and after his solid early performance at the Senior Bowl, he could very well end up being drafted in the late first round of the draft.
