The Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2019 season was a wild one. They finished last in the AFC South for a second straight year after signing Nick Foles to a four-year, $88 million deal. But Foles went down with a broken clavicle early in the year, making Gardner Minshew Jacksonville’s starting quarterback.

The Jaguars had a bottom 10 scoring offense last season and could use more firepower to compete with the other teams in the division. On one hand, Minshew needs protection. The ninth pick is a good spot to land a top offensive lineman. On the other hand, Jacksonville could also get its hands on an elite wide receiver prospect.
Losing Ramsey means there’s a need for another top cornerback. D.J. Hayden holds that spot now, but his expiring contract will make him an unrestricted free agent in 2021. The defensive line could also need reinforcements soon though, as the Yannick Ngakoue — Jacksonville’s franchise player and star pass rusher — could be traded ahead of the draft in April.
Dream first pick
Getting an offensive lineman might be the most practical move, but getting budding star with game-changing potential like Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb would be a dream pick for Jacksonville. Pairing him with D.J. Chark and Dede Westbrook would give the Jaguars a formidable, young receiving corps. They already have a productive back in Leonard Fournette, so this addition would make the offense even more complete.
