Jaguars players donate to help communities during COVID-19 pandemic
During this time many families, and individuals have suffered great financial losses due to the on-going quarantine caused by the novel coronavirus known as CoV-2(SARS), which can cause the disease Covid-19.
Many NFL players have already contributed greatly to the cause, including cornerback Tre Herndon and former quarterback Nick Foles. Now the Jaguars have announced several other players who are pledging funds or their time to contribute to various causes in their home city or Jacksonville, Florida.
See who all has given so far to help during the pandemic.
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.
Alfie Crow of Big Cat County is back for his second first-round pick in the SB Nation NFL writers’ mock draft to add a potential starter on defense.
