We’re two days down and one more to go on the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone defense in three of their first four picks — selecting cornerback C.J. Henderson and pass rusher K’Lavon Chaisson with their two first round picks, wide receiver Laviska Shenault in the second round, and run-stopping nose tackle Davon Hamilton in the third round.
Now it’s time to help Gardner Minshew. We need more weapons on offense.
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.
4:58 PM: Usually Dave Caldwell doesn’t pick for need this late in the draft, so if it was a tight end he must really like him.
4:22 PM: Is... Jake Luton good? This is a serious question.
3:50 PM: Oh man, Collin Johnson is an absolute talent and if it weren’t for injuries he’d have gone in the second or third round.
3:17 PM: The Jaguars are picking Collin Johnson with their second pick in the fifth round!
2:55 PM: Another defender? That should tell you all you need to know about where this team thinks a rebuild needs to happen.
1:53 PM: The Jaguars grabbed linebacker Shaquille Quarterman with their third and final pick of the fourth round. He’s a thumper, a great blitzer, and will stop the run. Solid pick at a position of need.
1:44 PM: Josiah Scott is the second pick of the fourth round. Good insurance policy at nickel cornerback. This team needs depth at that position.
1:15 PM: This is the grossest thing I’ve ever seen. My goodness.
1:01 PM: Oh my!
Jacksonville’s 4th-round pick: Ben Bartch’s college transformation pic.twitter.com/Ohv53XYveV— PFF Draft (@PFF_College) April 25, 2020
12:55 PM: Bartch is projected to be a guard at the next level, but has the agility and mean streak to be a quality starting tackle for the Jaguars. What he lacks in prototypical arm length he makes up for in flexible knees and ankles that allow him to bend more than most offensive linemen. He should immediately get looks at tackle and guard, and if he develops quickly, challenge AJ Cann for starting right guard, and even be a tackle for the Jaguars.
12:50 PM: And our first pick of the fourth round is in! We’re going to the trenches and beefing up our offensive line with St. John’s offensive tackle B Bartch.
11:59 AM: Some interesting names on Fil’s list of top available in Day 3. I’d hope we’d go after cornerback Bryce Hall, personally.
