The hints from the Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t been strong ones, but we read what we can from David Caldwell and Gus Bradley.
The Jaguars need a foundational piece here, and teams starting a rebuild usually start inside out working on the lines.
An offensive lineman could be a value in the spot. Even if the Chiefs take Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher first overall, the one who’s left is a blue-chip prospect. Bradley said a first-round tackle would play on the right with Eugene Monroe remaining on the left.
Monroe’s contract is up after this season. I think he’s good but not great. He has potential to make great increases with the change from Andy Heck to George Yarno as offensive line coach.
Drafting a right tackle second overall isn’t maximizing value, however.
The team has had pass-rush problems forever. Ezekiel Ansah is too raw and too unproven. So Dion Jordan of Oregon is my choice for them. He might need a little time too, but he’s a physical specimen with explosion and those are qualities Jacksonville needs more of at the position.
The draft so far:
1. KC: Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M
2. JAX: Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
