The Jaguars have selected Chris Claybrooks with the 223rd pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. This is the final pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for Jacksonville, and they go back to the defensive side of the ball with it. Claybrooks is a speedy defensive back who can immediately contribute on special teams.

Claybrooks, despite only being 5’9 and 177 pounds, has game changing speed. He can use that 4.36 40 yard dash time to cover ground and make plays. That speed also makes him a contributor on special teams and in the kick and punt return game.

For the Jaguars, this is the 4th defensive back selected this year, and Claybrooks will probably begin his Jaguars career as a returner and special teams contributor, and play in the slot cornerback position behind DJ Hayden.
