The jury is still out for the Jacksonville Jaguars on this one.
Jaguars’ original 2020 pick: Defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson (20th overall, first round)
They missed on: Linebacker Patrick Queen
It’s always premature to call a draft pick a disappointment or a bust after just one season. Although some players can have an impact right out of the game, others need time to develop before they turn into steady contributors. That’s the case with defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson, whom the Jaguars chose with the 20th overall selection in 2020.
Chaisson was a non-factor early in the year but finished the season on a high note and should be even better in Year 2. Nevertheless, there were some other talented prospects when the ‘Jags’ were on the clock. They could’ve taken wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who broke Anquan Boldin’s rookie receiving yards record last season, but it’s uncertain if he would’ve had the same kind of success with the Jaguars when you consider how much they struggle to get things going on offense.
On the other hand, they had a chance at linebacker Patrick Queen who had a solid rookie season for the Baltimore Ravens. The former Tiger logged 103 total tackles (nine for a loss), three total tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and one interception.
