Deantre Prince, CB, - Round 5, pick 153

The Jaguars are set at a handful of position groups heading into the draft. That means they could double dip in later rounds to fortify other units. Their cornerback room could most certainly use some depth after Tre Herndon and Chris Claybrooks became free agents. Perhaps the front office will eventually bring them back, but they may be better off developing a younger player.

Ole Miss cornerback Deantre Prince would be a solid pickup in Round 5. A four-star recruit out of high school, he progressively saw his playing time increase during his tenure with the Rebels. His understanding of route combinations has room for improvement, and he's not great in run support. On the other hand, he's got adequate athleticism and good tracking skills.

At 6'0" and 183 pounds, he may be a better fit in the slot, but could also go against smaller receivers in the boundaries.

Keith Randolph, DT, Illinois - Round 6, pick 212

Defensive tackle is no longer a pressing need after signing Arik Armstead. However, they shouldn't pass up the chance to add depth to their rotation. Keith Randolph doesn't have a great get-off and his lateral agility is far from great. That said, Randolph knows how to use his hand to shed blocks and could develop into a stout run defender.

Dillon Johnson, RB, Washington

At this point of the draft, the Jags, like every other team, can look for diamonds in the rough, and take chances. Their running back room is set but that shouldn't stop them from investing a pick on Dillon Johnson.

A downhill runner, Johnson lacks top speed and his running style exposes him to lots of contact. However, he's a decisive runner who drops his shoulder to break tackles. He could compete for a roster spot but may also be a solid addition to the practice squad.
