Jacksonville Jaguars Day 2 NFL Mock Draft

Jaguars bolster both sides of the ball in this Day 2 mock draft

NCAA Football: Maryland at Penn State Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Good news, draft fans! Rounds two and three of the 2021 NFL Draft will be happening tonight! The draft is still loaded at multiple spots, especially on defense. The Jaguars loaded up on offense drafting quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne with their first two picks in the draft. With Day Two set to begin later tonight, here is an absolutely perfect mock draft for the day that I’m sure everyone will love.

33. Jacksonville Jaguars — Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

The Jaguars need help literally everywhere on defense, and Campbell is a physical corner who fits the athletic profile that Baltimore coveted in their corners. If the Jaguars plan on playing a defense similar to the Ravens, physical coverage guys are what they need, and Campbell gives them that. He’s also a willing and tough tackler who isn’t afraid to mix it up with other players, making him a good fit for a man-heavy scheme. I worry a bit about his potential in zone, but he won’t have to worry about that in Jacksonville.

45. Levi Onwuzurike, DT, Washington

OK, so I REALLY wanted Christian Barmore to fall here, but the mock draft simulator said otherwise (thanks TDN). I honestly think Barmore falls to 45, and if he does, Jacksonville shouldn’t hesitate to draft him at all. However, as the simulator says, I have to go with the next best option. Onwuzurike is an explosive defensive tackle who plays with his hair on fire every snap of the game. He’s stout against the run and offers a high ceiling with his pass rush. Jacksonville’s defensive line is in need of serious help, and with Onwuzurike they’ll finally have an explosive pass rusher from the interior.

65. Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State

This pick was set in stone from the moment the Jaguars hired Tyler Bowen as their tight ends coach. Bowen, who coached Freiermuth at Penn State, knows firsthand what kind of player Freiermuth is. Now, Freiermuth isn’t the explosive athlete that Kyle Pitts is, but he’s a sure handed receiver who can create separation with his body-not with his athleticism. He has a lot of potential aligned as an in-line tight end as well as flexed out.
