The Jacksonville Jaguars were at times hard to watch in 2020. Although they played a competent brand of football at times, they had a hard time keeping up with opposing teams more often than not. On the other hand, they had some bright spots, including rookie running back James Robinson and their wide receiver corps.

Even though the Jags had issues at the quarterback position, their wide receiver unit usually performed at a high level. Dj Chark led the team with 53 receptions for 706 touchdowns and five touchdowns while rookie Laviska Shenault showed flashes of the player he was in Colorado.

While Jacksonville let Keelan Cole walk in free agency, they made up for it by signing Marvin Jones Jr., who has scored 18 touchdowns in the last two seasons. They also locked up former first-round pick Phillip Dorset and Collin Johnson is still on the roster, so heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, the Jags have a formidable wide receiver group.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports believes this wide receiver class is loaded with talent, and teams will find quality prospects in the third and fourth-round pick that could become big-time players.

If that’s the case, the Jags could use their second first-round pick, number 25, and their two second-round selections to address other needs and target a wide receiver in the third or fourth round. Here are the top three prospects this Jacksonville team can target in the middle of the draft.
