Calais Campbell named to PFF’s “Top 101” All-Decade list
Former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell has continued to rack up the accolades since the 2019 season ended. Earlier this offseason, Campbell was the lone Jaguars played named to the NFL’s all-decade team for the 2010s, and this week he found himself on a similar list.
Campbell, who was traded to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2020 fifth-round pick in March, dominated for the Jaguars from 2017-2019 and as a result has been named to Pro Football Focus’ list of top 101 players from the 2010s. Campbell slots into No. 48 overall on the list, ahead of players like Travis Kelce, Andre Johnson, Trent Williams, and Patrick Peterson.
Why did the Jaguars draft Jake Luton?
The Jacksonville Jaguars knew they had to add a quarterback to their arsenal of offensive players at some point this offseason. Most just didn’t know if it would come in the form of a veteran free agent, a high draft pick, or, in the case of Jake Luton, a late-round selection.
The Jaguars opted to go through the main periods of free agency without signing a quarterback and didn’t target a quarterback early in last month’s draft after three went in the first six selections. Instead, they waited until the No. 189 overall selection, eventually pulling the trigger on Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton.
In 2019, the 6-foot-6 signal-caller three 28 touchdowns to just three interceptions, putting him on NFL radars and landing him a spot at the NFLPA all-star game. Combine this solid regular season and offseason with his traits, and it became clear why the Jaguars had an interest in him.
How many games are the Jaguars winning in 2020?
The 2020 NFL regular season schedule is out and the Jacksonville Jaguars will have their work cut out for them, especially in the middle of the schedule.
