2020 NFL Draft results: Grade the Jaguars picking Josiah Scott

NCAA Football: Michigan State at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Michigan State cornerback Josiah Scott with the No. 137 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Needed depth at cornerback. Let’s go.

We featured Scott in our list of cornerbacks who could go to the Jaguars on Day 3 and guess what... here he is!

A prospect I’ve gotten to watch closely during his three-year career at Michigan State. The only real knock on Josiah Scott is his small stature at 5-foot-9, 185 pounds. While it’s possible that may force him into the slot in the NFL, his size didn’t deter him from thriving as an outside cornerback for the Spartans. Scott started immediately as a freshman, and finished his college career with 98 tackles, seven interceptions and 32 passes defended, according to MSU’s official stats. He showed off his speed at the Combine with a 4.42 forty-yard dash time (ranked top-five for all cornerbacks), and is lauded for his coverage traits and ball skills. If teams can get over his height and durability concerns, he will be off of the board early on Day 3.

Go Jaguars.
