Jacksonville Jaguars, losers from Day 2 of 2021’s draft.

1) Offensive line coach George Warhop 

This was a deep offensive tackle class and this Jacksonville team could’ve taken a top prospect with their second first-round pick but chose to wait until the second round to add one, Walker Little, with the 45th overall pick. The Stanford product had an outstanding sophomore season, but hasn’t played football in nearly two years and entered the draft with injury red flags.

While Little has the potential to become an NFL starter, he has to remain healthy, something he struggled to do with the Cardinals. The Jags brought back all their offensive line starters from last year, so offensive line coach George Warhop will have to work his magic and get the most out of a group that allowed 44 sacks last season. The team’s brass could’ve sent some help his way but decided ultimately not to do it.

2) The Jaguars tight end unit

Another day came and went, and the Jaguars’ brass decided to overlook the tight end position once against. In their defense, there weren’t many enticing options in this draft class and if they didn’t take one, it’s because they didn’t feel comfortable with the ones they were available.

Moreover, just one tight end was drafted in the second round, Pat Freiermuth. Then again, the Pittsburgh Steelers felt good enough about the Philadelphia native that they used the 55th overall selection on him. Later in the third round, three tight ends got their name called, Hunter Long, Tommy Tremble, and Tre’ McKitty.

Miami tight end Brevin Jordan is still available and if the Jaguars want to address the position once for all, they will have the opportunity to take him with the first pick of the fourth round, the 105th overall.
