Adisa Isaac, OLB: Round 4, pick 114

The Jaguars gave Kansas City a fourth-round pick as a part of the trade to land L'Jarius Sneed but they acquired an extra fourth last year when they swapped selections with the New Orleans Saints in last year's draft. They gave that pick, the 116 overall, to the Chiefs and kept their own, No. 114. The front office uses that choice to bolster the pass rush.

The Jaguars have a pair of dominant pass rushers in Travon Walker and Josh Allen, so they can afford to wait until the later rounds of the draft to round out their rotation. Adisa Isaac at No. 114 is an appealing choice. While his numbers at Penn State don't stand out, he's got the size and athleticism to eventually become a steady contributor.

Already, Isaac excels at stopping the run but is a bit raw when it comes to getting after the quarterback. Leaving aside that he lacks ideal bend, he needs to work on his hand usage when going against offensive linemen. On the other hand, he's managed to work around it and create pressure up front. It's fair to assume that he can get much better with coaching in Jacksonville.

Working in Isaac's favor is that he wouldn't need to contribute right away. He could hone his skills and compete with sophomore Yasir Abdullah while he's ready to step onto the football field. Down the road, though, he would give the Jaguars a dynamic No. 3 rusher behind Allen and Walker.
