The first round of the 2017 NFL Draft has come and gone and the Jacksonville Jaguars took arguably the best running back available in Leonard Fournette — a bruising, physical talent who can wear down opposing defenders over the course of the game.

He’s exactly who Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone dream about.

But Day 2 is now upon us and with Fournette in tow, they need to upgrade their offensive line and I wouldn’t be surprised if they went that direction in the second round with guys like Cam Robinson and Forrest Lamp still available.

We’ll be updating this live blog all day (and running live blogs every day of the draft) and packing in every rumor, piece of news, and mention of the Jaguars. Coverage starts at 7pm EST on ESPN and NFL Network.
