Jaguars mock draft: 2nd round, 33rd overall pick – Perrion Winfrey, IDL

The Jaguars’ brain trust adds to their defensive line with another prospect in addition to Thibodeaux by way of Oklahoma’s Perrion Winfrey with the 33rd overall pick. The team would have a dual pass-rushing and run-stopping lineman in Winfrey. In fact, statistically speaking, Winfrey regularly showed off his ability to get into the opponent’s offensive backfield, amassing 16.5 tackles for a loss from 2020 to 2021.

Winfrey stands at six-foot-four and 304 pounds, making him a lethal combination of size and strength. His athletic ability, which consists of speed, an explosive burst off the line, and good hands, will help Winfrey become disruptive in the interior for the Jaguars.

Winfrey’s lean frame and high motor make him a nightmare to block one-on-one, and he is therefore excellent at stopping the run.

He’ll be more apt at playing the 3-tech in the NFL, and once in the pros, he can work to polish his pass-rushing repertoire. While he doesn’t have the traditional size you look for in a defensive tackle, Winfrey makes up for it with natural talent and raw power. If he falls to 33, the Jaguars will essentially be stealing a first-round talent in the second round, which is a no-brainer even for Baalke.
