3 Jacksonville Jaguars 2021 NFL Draft prospects from Oregon
The Jacksonville Jaguars will have options at the cornerback position.
Thomas Graham wasn’t the only Ducks cornerback that declared for the draft. If the Jaguars aren’t interested in using an early or middle-round selection on a cornerback or want to double-dip at the position, they could target Deommodore Lenoir on Day 3 of the selection meeting.
In his four-year career at Oregon, Lenoir appeared in 45 games and registered 158 tackles, 21 passes defensed, six interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He’s an exceptional tackler that missed just nine misses on 167 attempts and doesn’t get bullied at the line of scrimmage. On the other hand, he doesn’t have the prototypical frame of a boundary cornerback and may have to line up in the slot or even at safety in the NFL.
Lenoir isn’t exactly fast either and doesn’t have the athletic ability to play man coverage but could be worth a fifth-round selection. The Jaguars currently have two fifth-round picks, their own and the one they received from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for safety Ronnie Harrison last offseason. They could use either one on Lenoir.
