NFL Draft results: Leonard Fournette was only offensive player in Jaguars Top 4

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted LSU running back Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The pick wasn't a surprise, as virtually every mock had the Jaguars picking Fournette, but VP of football operations revealed who the Top 4 players on the Jaguars board were after they'd all been picked.

The list isn't too surprising with Myles Garrett, Solomon Thomas, Jamal Adams and Fournette. The real surprise would have been Adams, but you'd guess that means the team just had a really high grade on him as a player, considering the investment the team had made at the safety position in free agency in the past two offseasons with Tashaun Gipson and Barry Church.

It's also worth noting that quarterback was involved in the discussion with the No. 4 overall pick, but which one was not discussed because they're potentially still available and it's possible the Jaguars could still try to land one.

I'm sure there were other players in consideration who weren't mentioned because they're still available, but this is the first time I remember someone for the Jaguars revealing their actual Top 4.
