The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Clemon running back Travis Etienne with the 25th overall pick in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, their second first round selection of this draft. The Jaguars picked quarterback Trevor Lawrence first overall and doubled back with the second first round pick they got in the Jalen Ramsey trade from the Los Angeles Rams to add to their offense.

It’s clear that head coach Urban Meyer has a plan for the Jaguars offense, not just adding Etienne because of his connection with Lawrence, but for his versatility in the backfield and the ability to have a two-headed monster with James Robinson also in the backfield.

Many people expected the Jaguars to continue to add weapons to make the transition for their rookie quarterback easier, and Meyer and general manager Trent Baalke did just that. It’s possible the Jaguars offense will put up some points.
