The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected defensive lineman Sheldon Day in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The team has loaded up on defensive players so far through the first two days of the draft, landing Florida State standout Jalen Ramsey with the No. 5 overall pick, trading up to get linebacker Myles Jack with the No. 36 pick, and then grabbing Maryland pass rush specialist Yannick Ngakoue with the No. 69 (nice) overall pick.

It's also a bit of a value pick as well, as lot of people projected Day to be a Day 2 selection in the NFL Draft.

Day is a quick, explosive athlete for his size and can play several positions along the defensive line. He's strong and knows how to get offensive lineman off balance. He was also a two-year team captain at Notre Dame and teammates never had anything bad to say about him.

His primary weakness is that he has a bit of an injury history. He's also struggled against the run, getting bullied when double-teamed by opposing interior offensive linemen.

What do you think of the Sheldon Day pick by the Jaguars?
