The Jacksonville Jaguars will be hosting free agent running back Latavius Murray on Monday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Murray will also be visiting with the Seattle Seahawks.

Murray is a punishing running back at 6’ 3” and 230 pounds. He has 2,917 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns on the ground in his first three seasons. He would be a fun addition and would all but preclude the Jaguars from taking Leonard Fournette or Dalvin Cook with the fourth overall pick. I don’t think you take a Fournette or a Cook with the money they’d have tied up in Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon, and Murray.

So... A.J. Bouye means no cornerback. Barry Church means no safety. Branden Albert could mean no offensive tackle. Calais Campbell could mean no defensive lineman. Latavius Murray would mean no running back. What position does that leave for the Jaguars at the top of the first rou-

Mother of God.
