The Jaguars will be the London Jaguars by 2022.  We guarantee it.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2020 Draft Grade: B

The Jaguars had two first round picks and brought in elite defenders in C.J. Henderson and K'Lavon Chaisson.  The Jaguars have been consistent about building through defense and a running game.  Laviska Shenault in the second was an average pick.  We think Davon Hamilton will be in the defensive line rotation and Ben Bartch could develop as a small school steal at guard.   Auburn safety Daniel Thomas is one of our favorite day three picks.  We had a late second round grade on him as a physical strong safety/LB hybrid. 

Jacksonville Jaguars 2018 Draft Grade: D

The Jaguars have it figured out.  If you can't get a franchise tosser (only a few teams have one) go defense in free agency, defense in the draft, and defense twice on Sunday.  Oh, and sprinkle in some Leonard Fournette.  The 2018 draft was a significant bump in the road for the Jags, however. They didn't draft anyone in our top 50, though WR D.J. Chark and S Ronnie Harrison nearly made out list.  First round Tarzan/Jane prospect Taven Bryan was significantly overrated.  He barely played at Florida and when he did he charged headlong into the backfield and then looked around as if he trying to figure out his purpose in life.   He's got tools, but they need lots of sharpening.  Nobody drafted in 2018 will start significant games without an injury and that's a bad sign.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2017 Draft Grade: B

From a talent standpoint, Fournette has top ten chops.  Will he be motivated enough to grind out big yardage for the next few years?  That is always a question with teams like Jacksonville and Cleveland. Second round tackle Cam Robinson fills a position of need.  Third round DE Dawuane Smoot has talent, but he wasn't as productive as he should have been in college and he was a third round reach. 4th round WR Dede Westbrook will be a steal if he stays out of trouble. Fifth round LB Blair Brown is one of the best draft eligible players versus the run, but he's limited athletically.  If he can do enough in coverage he could develop into a starter.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2016 Draft Grade: A

Jacksonville had a nearly flawless draft.  They filled a glaring need with a top player in CB/S Jalen Ramsey and then followed that with Myles Jack in the second.  If he's healthy he's a steal. DT Sheldon Day should make it into the rotation and Tyrone Holmes is an underrated pass rush prospect. We're fans of 6th round QB Brandon Allen.  The only need they didn't address was at tackle and we would have taken one in the 3rd round over DE Yannick Ngouae.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2015 Draft Grade: B-

The Jags went with the safe pick in Dante Fowler in the first round.  He should be a starter, but we don't see the elite pass rush ability we would like out of the #3 overall pick.  T.J. Yeldon should be good, but we preferred Duke Johnson and Ameer Abdullah.  The Jags improved as the draft went on, getting value in third round guard AJ Cann, fourth round safety James Sample, sixth round defensive tackle Michael Bennett and seventh round tight end Ben Koyack.

UDFA most likely to make the team:  Someone from Auburn.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Draft Grade: C+

After the first round, the Jags actually did well; however, there is no recovering from porking a top ten pick on a tosser. The team is screwed.  We said this would happen a few years ago to the Vikings (Ponder), Browns (Weeden), Jags (Gabbert) and Titans (Locker) when they reached for a first round tosser and all of those teams drafted in the top 11 this year.  Blake Bortles is the next in line.  He was a good developmental guy but they are going to have to pay him and commit at least a few years to him as their starter. We liked the wide receiver double down in the second round with Marquise Lee and Allen Robinson and the 5th round defensive double down with Telvin and Chris Smith, but it's not enough to overcome the Bortles pick.

UDFA most likely to make the team: Rashaad Reynolds- CB, Oregon State
