We’re one day down and two more to go on the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars went full defense on Day 1 — selecting C.J. Henderson and K’Lavon Chaisson with their two first round picks. Those two, along with Josh Allen, can put a stop to opponents in terms of the pass.
Now it’s time to load up the trenches.
We’ll be updating this live blog all day (and running live blogs every day of the draft) and packing in every rumor, piece of news, and mention of the Jaguars.
10:21 PM: The Jaguars... called them? Says a lot about how they feel about Leonard Fournette.
Bucs get their running back. The Jags called them about Leonard Fournette, I'm told, but Tampa Bay opted to fill the position through the draft, with Ke'Shawn Vaughn.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) April 25, 2020
10:06 PM: LET’S GO! We’re stopping the run this year, y’all.
9:38 PM: I would be surprised if it weren’t an offensive lineman in the third round.

8:36 PM: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
8:30 PM: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
And the Rams replace Todd Gurley with Florida State RB Cam Akers.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 25, 2020
8:03 PM: Oh, so Laviska Shenault is good good, huh?
8:01 PM: Draw Play Dave is just playing the hits, y’all.
I appreciate the Jaguars drafting 3 straight players I had drawn, good on you, Jags pic.twitter.com/jy9N0UGhrx— Social Distance Dave (@DrawPlayDave) April 25, 2020
7:49 PM: Jacksonville goes offense with their first pick of Day 2 — Laviska Shenault is a talented guy who fell due to injury.
7:38 PM: Did... did a dog just make a draft pick for the New England Patriots?
let’s cut to the patriots making their selection (no seriously - that’s what happened) pic.twitter.com/62IkmftwPU— Chris B. Brown (@smartfootball) April 24, 2020
7:16 PM: Ugh. Really wanted him to last to the Jaguars pick. Oh well.
5:01 PM: Day 2 is the Dave Caldwell Day. The second and third rounds are where he’s (arguably) gotten his best players and (definitely) his best value.
#Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell has moved up plenty of times into the second round (2014) and within the second round (2016, 2019) to land his guys.— Demetrius Harvey (@Demetrius82) April 24, 2020
Wouldn’t be surprised if something of the sort happens tonight with the amount of capital they have.
3:22 PM: Yup. Both C.J. Henderson and K’Lavon Chaisson are high character guys. The front office made a point to mention that several times last night. Not an accident.
Definitely seems like a high character guy, which they clearly wanted https://t.co/gh65EXggxX— John Shipley (@_John_Shipley) April 24, 2020
2:54 PM: That is a ton of money for an offensive lineman.
More specifics on the #Texans extension with LT Laremy Tunsil, who blew up the tackle market: 3 years, $66M with $57.85M guaranteed (more than I initially said) with $40M over the first two years and a $13M signing bonus, per me and @wyche89.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 24, 2020
1:24 PM: WE STAN A KING.
12:27 PM: Kent Lee Platte is very, very good at this and it’s encouraging to see C.J. Henderson rated so highly.
11:18 AM: Great insight here from Ian Rapoport. Jacksonville obviously targeted C.J. Henderson from the get go. Doesn’t seem to be a player they settled on.
#Falcons wanted to trade up for #Florida CB CJ Henderson. Why didn’t they?— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 24, 2020
— #Dolphins & #Chargers took QBs & wouldn't move.
— Not trading with #Panthers, same division.
— #AZCardinals wouldn’t move, wanted to take Simmons.
— ATL knew Jax was taking Henderson… and they did.
9:38 AM: The virtual access the Jaguars marketing department is getting us is really cool. Check out this Zoom call between Dave Caldwell, Doug Marrone, Tony Khan, and C.J. Henderson.
9:03 AM: Need a deep dive on new Jaguars cornerback C.J. Henderson. BCC alumni Zach Goodall has the remedy.
