The 2023 NFL Draft is finally, officially here.
John Shipley and I delivered our final predictions for who the Jacksonville Jaguars will select at 24th overall before answering listener questions.
At last Thursday's pre-draft press conference, Jacksonville’s general manager and head coach were asked about the team’s first-round pick. Trent Baalke responded:
I think you’re always looking, always looking to improve the team any chance you can, and obviously right now is a big chance to do that with the draft a week away, but I certainly feel good about where we’re at, but never complacent with where we’re at.
Doug Pederson followed:
I echo Trent’s comments. We love, obviously, picking later in the first round, not first, like we did the last couple years. There’s going to be some good players there at 24, and we’re excited about that, but again, we’re in that position, too, where we’re always looking to add talent, to add depth, add competition, from a coaching perspective, and we’re excited about that.
