Elijah Jones, CB, Boston College - Round 4, pick 116

The Jaguars addressed one of their biggest needs when they took Terrion Arnold in the first round. But if there's one position where they could and should double-dip in this year's draft, it's cornerback. While they have a pair of proven starters in Tyson Campbell and Ronald Darby, they could use some depth at the position.

After all, the Jaguars let Chris Claybrooks and Tre Herndon walk in free agency, so it would make sense to replenish their cornerback room. Currently, Chris Braswell, Gregory Junior, and Montaric Brown are poised to be the top backups at the position. Darnell Savage, who played safety with the Green Bay Packers, will move to the slot in Jacksonville. Elijah Jones would be an enticing option behind him.

Jones was a ballhawk at Boston College, registering a combined seven interceptions and 21 passes defensed the past two years. If that wasn't enough, the 2023 First-Team All-ACC allowed a 48.3 passer rating when targeted. He then turned heads at the Senior Bowl, showing that he could hold his own against top competition.

But as much as his stock has rose after the Senior Bowl, Jones should be available in Round 4.

Caedan Wallace, OL - Round 6, pick 212

Having taken care of their most pressing needs in the early rounds, the Jaguars can afford to add depth on Day 3. Caedan Wallace will turn 25 just days before the draft. That could turn off a handful of teams but general manager Trent Baalke shouldn't hesitate to take him if he's available.

Wallace made 13 starts at right tackle for the Nittany Lions last year. However, he could also be bumped inside if needed. At 6'5" and 314 pounds, he's nailed the fundamentals of the position and has the tools to develop into a solid backup for the Jaguars.

Isaiah Davis, RB - Round 7, pick 236

The Jaguars add competition to their running back room with their last pick in 2019. Isaiah Davis wasn't recruited heavily out of high school but made most of his chances at South Dakota State, registering consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 2022-2023.

Davis has a running style similar to that of sophomore Tank Bigsby. While he needs to improve as a pass blocker, he could push Bigsby in training camp and compete for a roster spot. At worst, he would be an intriguing addition to the practice squad.
