RB – Leonard Fournette – Round 1
Running back was on the long list of needs for the Jaguars, who wasted no time in securing a new starter. Fournette was once seen as a potential No. 1-overall pick, and it’s hard to argue that notion. He was nearly unstoppable as a sophomore, when he racked up 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground. He was derailed by a nagging ankle injury during his final season, but managed 6.5 yards a pop over the seven games he played.
OL – Cam Robinson – Round 2
Jacksonville got a three-year starter at Alabama in Robinson, who could become a franchise lineman. The only question that remains: Where will the Jaguars play him?
CB – AJ Bouye – Free Agency
Jacksonville was surprisingly great against the pass last season, allowing an average of 215.2 yards per game through the air. The Jags get another real good addition in the secondary with Bouye, who finally earned a steady role in 2016, when he defended 16 passes.
The Scout’s Take
“The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to change coaching staffs and general managers, but they just can’t seem to get it right.
Their record is 17-63 over the last five seasons. They hope that bringing Tom Coughlin back to oversee the organization will give them a push in the right direction. Coughlin is an old-school, tough guy whose new head coach, Doug Marrone, has the same mindset, and that at least means a more no-nonsense team with discipline.” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton.
