The Jacksonville Jaguars load on offense in the second round.
Left tackle Cam Robinson has been inconsistent through his four-year career and is set to become a free agent. Instead of re-signing him, the Jaguars need to look for an upgrade at the position in the draft. This is going to be a deep class, so the team can wait until the beginning of the second round and still land a good one.
Alex Leatherwood looked good against defensive end Quincy Roche in one-one-drills during Senior Bowl practices and was one of the top prospects even before the event. He was one of the most consistent left tackles throughout his career at Alabama and excels in both pass protection and run blocking.
Running back isn’t at the top of the Jaguars’ offseason needs due to the presence of James Robinson, who had a historic season in 2020. Nevertheless, the team needs to find him a good backup if they want to avoid overworking him.
Although it may not be a smart move to target a running back in the first round of the draft, Michael Carter should be available late in the second. The 2020 First-Team All-Acc had 333 carries for 2,248 yards and 12 touchdowns in his last two seasons at North Carolina and averaged 8.0 yards per carry in 2020. He had a 27-yard run in the Senior Bowl and finished the day with 10 touches for 75 yards and one touchdown.
