The second day of the 2021 NFL Draft came and although it wasn’t as flashy as the first one when the Jacksonville Jaguars took Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the top pick of the player selection meeting, there was some intrigue and interesting moves.

After taking their quarterback of the future and former Tigers running back Travis Etienne on Day 1, the Jags opted to take a chance on prospects that come with injury red flags but have the potential to turn into difference-makers at the NFL level.

This Jacksonville team wasted no time and took Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell with the first pick of the second round after spending their two first-round selections on offense. They then used their other second-round pick, the one they got as part of the trade for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue last year, on Stanford offensive tackle Walker Little.

Once the second round concluded, the Jaguars opened the third round with the addition of safety Andre Cisco, who had an outstanding freshman campaign at Syracuse but dealt with injuries throughout his collegiate career. All the team’s Day 2 picks come with injury risk, and even though they may be able to stay healthy in the pros but it should definitely be a cause for concern.

In the end, if Jacksonville comes out of 2021’s draft with a handful of starters, their approach will have paid off. In the meantime, here are the winners and losers of Day 2.
