Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington - Round 4, pick 114

Even if the Jaguars take a wide receiver in Rounds 1 or 2, it would make sense for them to add depth at the position later in the draft. After all, backups Tim Jones and Parker Washington are serviceable but not much else. With that said, Washington's Rome Odunze is projected to go early in the first round but teammate Jalen McMillan should be available in the fourth.

A superb route-runner, McMillan lined up in the slot at Washington out of necesssity. However, he showed he can play in the boundaries when he filled in for Odunze and Ja'Lynn Polk. That kind of versatility would be welcomed in the Jaguars' wide receiver corps.

Brennan Jackson, edge, Washington State - Round 4, 114

The Jaguars would like to round out their rotation early in the draft but they have better needs. On top of that, Travon Walker and Josh Allen are firmly entrenched as the starters. What they need is a reliable No. 3 that can bring the heat when called upon. After four underwhelming seasons, K'Lavon Chaisson became a free agent and promptly signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers.

The team's brass could replace Chaisson, last year's No. 3, with Washington State's Brennan Jackson. Although Jackson suffered injuries in 2018 and 2019, he's managed to remain healthy in recent years. He needs to learn to recognize blocks and his hand usage could use some work, but he's got the traits to eventually develop into a steady contributor.
