Jaguars post FA mock draft – 3rd round, 65th pick – Dylan Parham, OL.
Trevor Lawrence is the biggest beneficiary of the moves the Jaguars made in free agency. Not only did they revamp their wide receiver corps but they also beefed up their offensive line. Besides tagging Cam Robinson and landing guard Brandon Scherff, they also brought back interior offensive lineman Tyler Shatley on a two-year deal and reserve tackle Will Richardson.
Even if Brandon Linder retires, the Jaguars’ offensive line should be in better shape than it was last year. Shatley could take his place in the lineup and Ben Bartch could take one of the two guard spots. Jawaan Taylor is set at right tackle and Walker Little showed promise as a rookie. Nevertheless, the team’s brass should still consider adding depth to the group in the draft.
DylanParham played some right tackle at the collegiate level but he’s better suited to play in the interior. Last season, he made 12 starts at right guard but has also lined up on the left side. At 6’2 5/8″, he doesn’t have optimal height but he makes up for it with excellent mobility and very good core strength. Brandon Thorn of Bleacher Report believes Parham’s athletic ability will let him pull and work in space effectively. He also thinks a move to center could possible.
The Jaguars could either have Parham compete with Ben Bartch or groom him as the center of the future. Either way, they need to add depth to their offensive line and the former Memphis Tiger would provide it.
