Jacksonville Jaguars: Three Day 2 cornerback targets to watch
The position of cornerback isn’t a number one priority for the Jacksonville Jaguars but it is still a position they have to address in both free agency and the draft. The Jaguars cornerback room has question marks painted all over it as they are expected to lose a few to free agency. Next year we may be looking at Sidney Jones IV and C.J. Henderson tandem but adding depth for some positional competition would do the Jaguars good.
Three Day 2 cornerbacks for the Jaguars to target in the draft:
Rodarius Williams, Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State’s Rodarius Williams is one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft. He’s the older brother of the Cleveland Browns’ Greedy Williams and has a chance to create draft hype of his own. Williams has serious potential to become a shut-down corner at the NFL level. When you watch his tape, a few specific things stand out. He always makes sure his hands are in play on the ball, he has good ball awareness, and offers good coverage up the sideline. Williams does very well at remaining patient at the line of scrimmage, avoiding any unnecessary steps.
Tyson Campbell, Georgia
Tyson Campbell didn’t have much production while at Georgia. But what makes him an intriguing defensive back prospect are his physical skills. He has exceptional length at 6’3″ and 190 pounds compared with incredible speed and athleticism. Campbell has the right tools to be a successful corner in the NFL, he just needs to figure out how to translate it to the field.
Keith Taylor, Washington
Keith Taylor has a unique and versatile skill set that fits into any defensive scheme. He’s highly disciplined in terms of his coverage and the steps he takes. He’s got good size and the right length to be a press corner in the NFL. Nick Falato with Giants Country at FanNation wrote ‘Taylor can wear many hats as well; he can be a sub-package LB, outside corner, nickel, third safety, and he did a good job blitzing at Washington.” This means he’s a plug-and-play kind of player who can be moved around the defense depending on the strengths and weaknesses of the opposing offense.
