The Jacksonville Jaguars tried to add as much talent as possible in the offseason. Although they refrained from adding big-name free agents, they signed several players that have gone on to become impact contributors in 2021. Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr., return specialist Jamal Agnew and cornerback Shaquill Griffin probably stand out the most but others such as safety Rayshawn Jenkins and Roy Robertson-Harris have played an important role for the team too.

Later in the draft, the Jaguars acquired a potential quarterback of the future in Trevor Lawrence. Also, cornerback Tyson Campbell is getting better by the week and could turn out to be a solid NFL starter. However, the roster makeover isn’t over and the Jags must continue hoarding talent next offseason.

Even though the Jags won’t have extra picks in the first or second round like they did this year, they are set to have early selections in both rounds, as they currently have a 2-5 record. They will have around $66 million in cap space, so they can make a couple of impact signings in the free agency and keep fortifying the roster in the draft.

Keep in mind that the Jaguars have hoarded a handful of picks after trading several players the previous regime acquired. While most of them are late in the round, they got a third-rounder (and tight end Dan Arnold) in exchange for C.J. Henderson and a fifth-round selection.

Without further ado, here’s a three-round mock draft that addresses some of the Jaguars’ most pressing roster needs.
