New, comments

The Jaguars fell backwards into linebacker Myles Jack in the second round. What draft grade would you dispense for Dave Caldwell's first round?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded up and selected UCLA linebacker Myles Jack in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Jaguars entered the draft with quite a few needs on the defensive side of the ball and seemingly have grabbed one of the best defensive player with their selection in the second round to pair with Jalen Ramsey, who they picked with the No. 5 overall pick.

Jack, who will likely get playing time initially as a strong side linebacker and on third downs as both a linebacker and safety hybrid, is a freak of an athlete in a linebacker body. He can give the Jaguars sideline-to-sideline playmaking ability, as well as someone who can excel in coverage on third down and lining up against tight ends, something the Jaguars have struggled with for years.

What grade are you giving Dave Caldwell and the Jaguars for landing Myles Jack in the second round?
