There’s really no more assuming around the first overall pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars. It has to be Trevor Lawerence. The 25th overall pick is a different story. There are several directions the Jaguars could end up going with this pick, but they’re only a few specific areas, and players, they should be focusing their attention on.
Jaguars have 5 good options at pick 25
1. OL Samuel Cosmi, Texas
It’s still unclear whether the Jaguars want to re-sign left tackle Cam Robinson or not. He’s a decent player but he’ll likely be asking for more money than he’s worth. Whether they re-sign Robinson or not, an offensive tackle is a position they have to invest in early in the draft, and the 25th overall pick is the best place to start. Samuel Cosmi would have to be the pick here. He has all of the right tools to be a franchise blindside blocker and you need someone who can protect your rookie quarterback.
2. IDL Levi Onwuzurike, Washington
The Interior defensive line is another major need for the Jaguars. If no good offensive tackles are left on the board by pick 25, then defensive tackle is the way to go. Otherwise, the Jaguars can go after one with the first pick of the second round. There are several candidates the Jaguars can go with but Levi Onwuzurike is one they can’t ignore. They need someone who can control the gaps in the offensive line and he’s the guy to do it.
3. IDL Christian Barmore, Alabama
Levi Onwuzurike and Christian Barmore are the top two guys who will likely still be available by the time the Jaguars pick with their second selection in the first round. Both are incredibly good players, the only reason I selected Onquzurike over Barmore was because of how evident his power against the run game is on tape.
Barmore has a high motor and consistently improved throughout his 2020 campaign, putting up “red-hot” numbers.
4. S Trevon Moehrig, TCU
Trevon Moehrig is very well the best safety prospect in this draft class and the Jaguar’s secondary would drastically benefit from adding him to the mix. He had a ton of production in college and incredible ball skills. Moehrig is a versatile player and can play well as a single-high safety or down in the box.
5. WR Kadarious Toney, Florida
Wide receiver isn’t a major need for the Jaguars but it would be smart to invest in the position at some point in the draft. In the first round, they have a lot of other positions to focus on early on but if Kadarious Toney is the best value left on the board at pick 25, don’t hesitate to hand the card in.
Many fans are skeptical of drafting players out of the University of Florida, considering they haven’t developed well as a pro in recent years. Toney feels like a different story. He’s agile, quick, and knows how to create separation against defenders. He’s already set up to develop well as a pro but just needs to work on his route-running skills.
