Top 5 players the Jacksonville Jaguars must target on Day 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft
The Jacksonville Jaguars got off to a strong start in the 2023 NFL Draft, taking Oklahoma offensive tackle Anton Harrison at No. 27 and picking three extra selections after trading back three spots. With the offensive line getting upgrades, the Jags must now take care of other position groups.
Fortunately, there's still plenty of talent left on the board on Day 2 of the Draft and Jacksonville should be able to add a couple of playmakers with picks 56 and 88. Also, don't rule out using the extra ammo they have to either move up in the second round or acquire an extra addition to so land some of the following prospects.
Prospect 5 the Jacksonville Jaguars must target on Day 2 of the draft: BJ Ojulari, OLB
The Jags would have surely liked to see outside linebacker Nolan Smith or Clemson defensive end Myles Murphy fall to the second round but both were taken near the end of Day 1. On the bright side, there are still several prospects available that could give their pass rush a boost. One of them is LSU outside linebacker BJ Ojulari.
At 6'3" and 244 pounds, Ojulari might need to bulk up and gain strength to consistently create pressure in the NFL. However, he's got plenty of untapped potential and tremendous upside.
Even though Ojulari needs to work on being less hesitant when rushing the passer, he possesses the speed and bend to develop into an impact outside linebacker in the pros. He could start the season behind Travon Walker and Josh Allen and see an uptick in playing time as he gets better.
