Jacksonville Jaguars post-free agency mock draft
The Jaguars further solidify their defense
The Jacksonville Jaguars added a starting safety in free agency by the name of Rayshawn Jenkins but still need to go out and find some depth in the draft. The safety class becomes a bit thin the later we get in the draft so rounds 2-3 will be the sweet spot to find the right player.
Jevon Holland out of Oregon is a versatile defensive back with good size and ball skills. He’s not afraid to attack the ball or come up in run support. He’s the kind of player the Jaguars can plug in anywhere in the secondary and he will make an impact.
Jacksonville adds another big body to the interior defensive line here. LSU’s Tyler Shelvin has the opportunity to be one of the draft’s biggest steals. The Jaguars desperately need a player of Shelvin’s size to stuff the run gaps and help create pressure on the passing game. Shelvin is quite athletic for a player his size, has good upper body strength, and a massive base. His high football intelligence allows him to disengage blocks at the right times to make a play.
The Jaguars have a lot of edge depth but Patrick Jones II is too good of a player to pass up. The other option at this point would be adding some more depth on the offensive line and the Jaguars could potentially snag someone on the inside. Quinn Meinerz‘s draft stock has sky-rocketed since January and I believe we may see him be drafted as high as the third round. If he’s still here in the fourth round, absolutely would I take a chance on him if I were the Jaguars.
