One of the biggest focuses of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the draft is the defensive line. With the departure of Arden Key, the Jaguars need to use a few picks to bolster the defensive front.

Trevor Lawrence's alma mater Clemson has three of the most coveted defensive line prospects in the draft. Let's look at which one could be a good fit for the Jags in the draft.

3. Clemson player the Jaguars must target in the 2023 Draft: Myles Murphy

The top Clemson prospect the Jags must target. . . Myles Murphy, Defensive End. 98. player. 432.

Myles Murphy was recruited out of Hillsgrove High School in Georgia. The same Hillsgrove Jaguars tight end Evan Engram attended. Murphy stood out as a freshman on defense for Trevor Lawrence's 2020 Clemson team.

His scouting reports all show the same strengths; He is consistent, versatile, and develops quickly. As far as his weaknesses, they are mostly developmental, but some scouts have noticed he takes a bit to reach top speed. There are no significant reasons for concern outside of the top 10.

Murphy is the rare blend of size, tools, and developmental traits. Many mock drafts have him going to Philidelphia Eagles at number 10, yet still, others see him slipping to the late twenties. If available at No. 24, the Jaguars could pounce on T-Law's former teammate. Watch the explosiveness in this video of his brutal sack of Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett.
