Happy Thursday, everyone! Here’s all the Jacksonville Jaguars news that’s fit to print... around the Internet.

Shad Khan writes letter to fans before NFL Draft
In less than 36 hours, the 2020 NFL Draft will officially begin. Months of anticipation, rumors, and in some cases anxiety, will finally draw to a close.
While the draft is the lifeblood of the NFL and is of vital importance to all 32 teams, the Jacksonville Jaguars are one team whose future will be shaped in a major in the coming days. The team holds a franchise-record 12 draft picks, including two in the first round for the first time since 1998.
With one of the most important three-day stretches in franchise history upon the team, Jaguars owner Shad Khan penned a letter to fans and the local community in which he addressed the draft, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic which has spread throughout the world and put everything at a fast halt
Leonard Fournette hosts virtual classes with Duval County students
Players from the Jaguars continue to be a light shining bright amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
That includes star running back Leonard Fournette, who held a virtual class with Duval County Public Schools students on Tuesday, thanks to series presented by P&G and Publix, and hosted by ProCamps.
Our final mock for the 2020 NFL Draft
It’s finally almost here. In what has been one of the more interesting, and confusing draft seasons to happen potentially ever, there is only a little more than 24 hours to go until the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the rest of the NFL, take the “stage” and take their shot at creating their best roster heading into the 2020 NFL season.
The Jaguars are facing an interesting predicament this year. At pick No. 9, they’ll have plenty to choose from, however, their top players, of which there are four, according to Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell, will likely be gone.
The Jaguars have already had discussions with teams thus far during this year’s draft process, whether it be trading up or down, however with the draft being so unpredictable, we decided not to include any trades in this mock draft.
Here’s our final mock draft, folks.
Allen Robinson responds to Marqise Lee being cut
From where I stand, there is no more suggestive emoji than the eyeballs. You can have your eggplants, peaches, smiling devil-face, and whatever else comes to mind. There is nothing like a set of well-timed and well-placed eyeball emojis to set off the imagination.
So when I saw Allen Robinson’s latest tweet — after the Jaguars released receiver Marqise Lee — I started getting ideas:

And that same idea sure seems to be on Allen Robinson’s mind, as well.
