Jaguars final mock draft: 4th round, No. 106 pick – Justyn Ross, WR.
After addressing their remaining needs, the Jaguars can now turn their attention to the wide receiver corps and they might have a chance to take former Trevor Lawrence teammate Justyn Ross in the fourth round, where they can afford to take a gamble.
Back in 2018, Ross hauled in 46 receptions for 1,000 yards with nine touchdowns. The following year, he caught 66 receptions for 865 yards with eight touchdowns. However, he had a congenital fusion in his spine that required surgery and missed the whole 2020 season. He returned in 2021 and had 46 receptions for 516 yards with three touchdowns in spite of playing through a foot injury.
If Ross can fully recover and manage to stay healthy, he could be a steal for the Jaguars.
Jaguars final mock draft: 5th round, No. 157 pick – Rachaad White, RB.
General manager Trent Baalke told the media during the Jaguars’ pre-draft press conference that he believes they could find a good running back in the middle rounds and Arizona’s State Rachaad White will probably be available in the fifth.
Last season, White racked up 182 carries for 1,000 yards with 15 touchdowns at Arizona State. He also made an impact in the passing game, catching 43 receptions for 456 yards with one touchdown. Per Pro Football Focus, he forced 52 missed tackles on 255 carries throughout his collegiate career. The Jaguars can lean on him and pair him with Travis Etienne while James Robinson recovers from the torn Achilles he suffered near the end of the 2021 season.
