Jacksonville Jaguars draft Javon Baker

  • Round 4, pick 114
  • Wide receiver, UCF

The Jaguars have a history of either signing or drafting Central Florida products, with Gabe Davis, Blake Bortles, Mike Sims-Walker, and Shaq Griffin among them. When Javon Baker transferred from Alabama to UCF, we saw his true potential emerge. In 2023, he had 52 catches for 1,139 yards, with an impressive 21.9 yards per catch.

By all accounts, Baker's got the size and strength to step in and be an impactful receiver next season. He’s great at tracking the ball and making catches in traffic.

The Jaguars offense boasts a solid group of receivers, but in Baker, they get not just a flashy guy with tremendous YAC potential, but also someone who’s not afraid to get physical.

Jacksonville Jaguars draft Gabriel Murphy

  • Round 4, pick 116
  • Edge rusher, UCLA

Since transferring from North Texas in 2022, this Bruins edge rusher has flourished, amassing 92 pressures with UCLA while showing an ability to impact a game on various fronts. 

Gabriel Murphy was an All-Pac 12 Honourable Mention in his senior year. He has exceptional athleticism and can often secure coverage sacks by engaging through plays. He has a great first step and can navigate the edge well against offensive tackles.

The Texas native can align across many defensive positions, which could make him a useful depth piece should the Jags be hit with injuries at that position.

The Jacskonville Jaguars draft Javon Foster

  • Round 5, pick 153
  • Offensive tackle, Missouri

Foster rose quickly through the college ranks, from being redshirted in 2018 to being named to either the First or Second All-SEC team in his final two seasons.

If Foster is on the board when the Jags are on the clock in Round 5, he’d be tough to pass up, even if they lock up a lineman in the earlier rounds. He had a breakout 2023 season, starting every game at left tackle.

Foster is versatile, playing at both tackle spots in college and effective at managing space in run blocking and pass protection. Foster could bring a lot to the table in the red zone, an area the Jags struggled mightily in last season.
