5. Jaguars’ low-key option in the 2nd round – Skyy Moore, WR.

The Jaguars did a good job of revamping their wide receiver corps in free agency, signing Christian Kirk and Zay Jones in free agency. However, there could still be room for another wide receiver on the depth chart. Marvin Jones Jr. is set to become a free agent next offseason and Laviska Shenault is coming off a down season, so it would make sense to add a difference-maker in the draft.

It’s hard to tell how the first round will unfold and how many receivers will be drafted but Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, and Treylon Burks will most likely be gone in the second round. Due to the addition of Kirk and Jones, the Jags could wait to add another wideout, maybe in the third round, where they have two selections. However, they could also target Skyy Moore, who has been one of the biggest risers ahead of the draft.

The Western Michigan product is one of the most polished route runners of his class and has a penchant for coming down with tough catches. At 5’9″ and 195 pounds, he’s got a small frame to play in the NFL but the Jaguars can’t overlook his talent. Last season, he played 12 games and hauled in 95 receptions for 1,292 yards with ten touchdowns. Furthermore, his 91.8 Pro Football Focus overall grade is the highest one at the collegiate level since 2016.

Moore’s ability to line up inside and outside makes him worth a flyer in the second round.
