Jaguars show extra interest in Shaq Lawson injury

Could the Jaguars be doing their homework on a top draft target?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are doing their homework on Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson, reportedly asking him to recheck about the claim that he doesn't need surgery on his right shoulder, according to Josh Norris of Rotoworld and NBC Sports. Lawson is thought by some to be the best 4-3 defensive end in the draft after Bosa and his tape is damned impressive.

Lawson being a possibility with the No. 5 overall pick may seem wild right now, but expect the train of thought to pick up some steam by draft night. In fact, if Bosa is selected before the Jaguars can pick, then Lawson makes a ton of sense.

He would be able to give the Jaguars the kind of flexibility that Bosa would because he is as quality a run defender as he is a pass rusher. He is also the only true #ForcePlayer in the 2016 draft, which is a huge deal.
