Jordan Whittington. Jordan Whittington. 6. WR. 467. . . . player. Jordan Whittington

With their second selection in the sixth round, the Jaguars go wide receiver again, solely based on the fact that Jordan Whittington was the best player on the board. For those who still have nightmares about Laviska Shenault, do not fret. Jordan Whittington is definitely a position-versatile player who has had some go at running back, but at least the Jaguars aren't taking an early-round risk on a guy like this.

In the sixth round, Whittington is a strong find. He's also very smart and has great hands. Whittington is one of those guys who will do what he's asked and do it at a high level.

EDGE. Steve Linton. Steve Linton. Steve Linton. . player. 468. . . 7

Finally, Jacksonville takes another pass rusher to round out their 2024 class. Texas Tech's Steve Linton may not be a bonafide starting option, but he'll be able to add some talent to the rotation and compete for a roster spot.

Similar to Duke, Linton is a bit lighter and weighs in around 235 pounds, so he's more of an outside linebacker. But, he's done a great job at winning reps on tape. No matter how he does it, Linton finds a way to win the rep more often than not. We'll see if he can bulk up a bit and refine his game more as a pro.
