The Jacksonville Jaguars will do one of three things with the No. 7 overall pick on Thursday night:
- They’ll trade down. It’s a deep class at their positions of need and if top tier defensive lineman like Ed Oliver drops, a team like the Atlanta Falcons could be a good trade partner.
- They’ll pick a tight end. There are two very good players at the top — T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant — who will not be there when they pick again in the second round.
- They’ll pick an offensive lineman, specifically a right tackle to fill the void of Jermey Parnell leaving.
One right tackle linked with the Jaguars has been Jawaan Taylor out of the University of Florida.
NFL insiders say that would be a bad move.
Tony Pauline, appearing on 1010XL’s “Jaguars Today” radio program had some things to say about Taylor, none of which were good.
"Teams have multiple medical red flags on Jawaan Taylor. He has knee, back, and weight issues that's scaring teams."— DraftWeekCouch (@BCBCouch) April 24, 2019
“Teams have multiple medical red flags on Jawaan Taylor,” Pauline said. “He has knee, back, and weight issues that’s scaring teams.”
What do you think? Are Taylor’s issues being overblown or should the Jaguars look elsewhere when it comes to the No. 7 overall pick? Let us know in the comments below!
