Jaguars News: Myles Murphy might be someone they consider drafting
The Jacksonville Jaguars have a lot of options when it comes to the 2023 NFL Draft. They are in a position where a good pick could be the difference in a Super Bowl run.
They are slated to make the 24th overall selection in the draft. If they are smart and a little bit lucky, they might get a player that really does help them.
One player that they might consider is Myles Murphy. He is a very good edge rusher that comes from the University of Clemson.
Murphy, according to reports, has met with the Jacksonville Jaguars. There are a few other teams interested in meeting with him as well which shows that there is first round interest in him.
Myles Murphy is going to be a first round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
He is well deserving of this consideration considering all he did with Clemson. In his last season there, he had 40 tackles (11 for a loss), a fumble recovery, two deflected passes, and 6.5 sacks. Those are some really good numbers.
Now, he will be looking to make an impact in the NFL. He should go right around the selection that the Jaguars have. If he is sitting there at 24, they just might go all in on him.
There are going to be some other defensive improvements to this team as it seems to be their biggest need heading into the 2023 season. Their offense is great and only getting better so improving the defense is the next order of business.
An edge rusher would be amazing for them. Getting someone who can get the opposing quarterback moving and down often is the second most important thing on an NFL roster in today's league. Only your own quarterback is more important which the Jaguars have locked down.
Myles Murphy comes from a great football program and should be ready to be a pro right away. The Jaguars would not be foolish to take him with their pick if they believe that he is the best player available because he certainly fits a need.
