The Jaguars are well positioned to improve their team in the 2021 NFL Draft. They are armed with 10 picks overall, including four picks that will be in the top 45, so they will be able to add some serious impact players to their roster.
Jacksonville is No. 1 in this year’s draft, and it’s basically set in stone that they’ll take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with that pick. Beyond that, no one can guess what the team will do, as the team needs a lot of updates to get back to the form they showed when they almost went to the Super Bowl in 2018.
Here’s a look at the Jaguars’ picks in the 2021 NFL Draft:

Jaguar’s NFL draft needs
- Attack player: Gardner Minshew has shown some promise, but the Jaguars will almost certainly take Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick.
- Hard ending: The Jaguars will need to surround Lawrence with weapons. They have a good receiving corps, but they need a top tight end to complete it.
- Offensive line: Cam Robinson is playing in the franchise bidding at left tackle. The Jaguars need someone to compete with him and potentially replace him.
- Defensive line: Jacksonville averaged 1.1 sacks per game last year, tied for the fewest in the NFL. They need better pass runners on the edge and as a defensive tackle.
- Safety: The Jaguars filled a cornerback need by signing Shaquill Griffin. Now, they need to add a safety to pair up with Rayshawn Jenkins to improve the rear end of their defense.
