The Jacksonville Jaguars appear as if they want to shore up their tight end position prior to the 2018 NFL Draft after signing Niles Paul and having Austin Seferian-Jenkins in for a visit. The team will bring former Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Willson in for a visit on Friday, according to Adam Caplan.

Willson is a bit of a different type of tight end than Seferian-Jenkins, the latter of which is more in the pass catching mold of player. Willson on the other hand is more of a do everything type of tight end, but doesn’t produce a ton in the passing game. Willson is a solid blocker and can be used in different formations, which is probably his appeal.
With the Jaguars being a more run heavy type of team and with quarterback Blake Bortles traditionally not utilizing the tight end a ton in the offense, in my opinion Willson might be a better fit for what the Jaguars do than Seferian-Jenkins.
