4 ways Jaguars can address lack of wide receiver talent this offseason
Jaguars GM Trent Baalke should go after Garrett Wilson from Ohio State.
It’s hard to justify using the first overall pick on a wide receiver, so, Trent Baalke could potentially trade down to 13th and swap picks with the Cleveland Browns. By doing so, the Jaguars put themselves in a spot where they could draft Garrett Wilson and get Lawrence, a potential legit number one wide receiver.
The key for the Jaguars will be adding a free agent this offseason. Bringing along Wilson and having him build chemistry with Lawrence could take time. If you keep Jones, draft Wilson, and bring in Michael Gallup, you give Wilson some cushion to adjust to the NFL.
The Browns are no strangers to picking first in the draft. However, the caveat here is that they’d be in the driver’s seat and in excellent shape to address one of their glaring needs at the safety position. They might pick Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton or, if they’re feeling lucky, go with LSU cornerback Derek Stingley Jr.
The defensive backfield for the Browns needs help, specifically at safety. Their pass rush and offensive lines are in solid shape, but picking Hamilton, for example, gives them a surefire playmaker. Ronnie Harrison, Grant Delpit, and John Johnson III don’t exactly inspire fear in opposing offensive coordinators’ minds.
