3. Adisa Isaac, Edge - Penn State

Travon Walker and Josh Allen registered a combined 27.5 sacks between the two in 2023 but the pass rush could still use a boost. While the Jags brought in Trevis Gipson in free agency, they also lost K'Lavon Chaison and Dawuane Smoot

Gipson has previously shown he can get after the quarterback but is coming off a down year. The team's brass may want to add another pass rusher in case he doesn't bounce back, and there will be ample options on Day 2. By that point of the draft, Chop Robinson will most likely be gone but teammate Adisa Isaac should still be available.

A four-star recruit out of high school, Isaac posted a team-high 7.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss last year. His performance at the Senior Bowl got him praise from draft analysts Louis Reddick and Matt Miller. The former went as far as saying that the former Nittany Lion wouldn't last until the third round. Similarly, Doug Farrar of Touchdown Wire likes that Adisa can penetrate the gap and turn his speed into power.

Isaac put his athleticism on display at the scouting combine, posting a 40-yard dash of 4.75 seconds and a vertical jump of 34.5 inches. On the other hand, his bend isn't great and his hand usage needs work. On top of that, he may be better at rushing the passer from a standup position than with his hand on the group.

This is important because the Jaguars will be switching to a 4-3 front under defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen. That said, Nielsen could find a role for Isaac in his defense. Maybe he could use him in passing situations early in his rookie season and increase his workload as he grows comfortable. Either way, he's got the tools to develop into an impact contributor.
