NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault with the No. 42 overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

This is AWESOME.

When the ball is in his hands, Shenault is a big play waiting to happen. He has the speed and the shiftiness to take a short route to the house every time. His 40 time scared a lot of people, but he was battling an injury throughout the season. His play speed is a lot faster than his combine speed, and Shenault can take the top off of any defense with his speed and playmaking.

Playmaking is something this wide receiver group needs in Jacksonville. Outside of Chark Jr., no wideout really established themselves as the number two receiver in the offense. However, with new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and his West Coast offense, there needs to be a guy who can take short routes the distance and take the top off of a defense. Shenault can do that in bunches.
