Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here’s all the Jacksonville Jaguars news that’s fit to print... around the Internet.
We’ve got thoughts on how the receiving corps looks going into the NFL Draft, what almost was with Calais Campbell back in 2008, and Warren Moon’s thoughts on Cam Newton!
How do the receivers look headed into the 2020 NFL Draft?
In only a few weeks, the 2020 NFL Draft will at last commence. This year’s draft will obviously be dramatically different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced the draft to become a completely virtual event. But nonetheless, the show marches on.
While we gear up in preparation for the draft, we will be looking at each position group on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ roster to gauge where it stands before this month’s draft. Which groups need more attention, and which appear to be set?
In this edition, we take a look at the Jaguars’ wide receiver room, which is led by 2019 breakout player D.J. Chark.
A.J. Epenesa would give the Jaguars a versatile defensive starter
Until the New England Patriots scored 14 fourth-quarter points in the AFC Championship game, the Jacksonville Jaguars were on a Cinderella Super Bowl run in the 2017 season. That team had one of the better defenses in recent NFL history.
But now that defense is broken into pieces. With four picks in the top 75, including two first-rounders, the defense can be rebuilt.
Warren Moon says Cam Newton would be good fit in Jacksonville
Warren Moon tells TMZ Sports ... Cam Newton would be a good fit in Jacksonville — saying the quarterback has a great shot to start over Gardner Minshew!
Newton has been team-less since the Carolina Panthers cut him last month ... and the market for the former MVP hasn’t been great.
In fact, Cam’s been heavily linked to the L.A. Chargers, but the Bolts haven’t reciprocated the interest. Like, at all.
Enter Moon ... who says Cam’s next best option might be down in Florida — ‘cause the Hall of Famer thinks Newton might have a real shot to beat out Minshew in Jacksonville.
Jaguars almost drafted Calais Campbell in 2008
The Jacksonville Jaguars were ready to select former Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell in 2008 with their first-round selection.
That’s according to Campbell himself... but it never came to fruition due to the Jaguars drafting up from the 26th overall pick to eighth overall in order to select former Florida Gators defensive end Derrick Harvey.
