The later rounds of the NFL Draft are normally used to take developmental players at positions that already have been filled. The Jaguars have taken this to heart with their selection of Georgia Tech Tight End Tyler Davis with the 206th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Davis, the transfer from UConn is a big target who can move down the field. He ran a 4.71 40 at his pro day, and he can use that speed to separate from defenders in the intermediate levels. He didn’t have a lot of production at Georgia Tech, but in his last season at UConn, he caught 6 touchdown passes.

Davis profiles as a developmental tight end who could work into the rotation in the case on injury. The Jaguars signed Tyler Eifert in free agency, and also still have Josh Oliver and James O’shaughnessy on the roster. So Davis can come in and develop behind the current tight ends, and play if needed.
