The Jacksonville Jaguars have undoubtedly taken the most decisive step in franchise history last week by exchanging cornerback Jalen Ramsey against a top-ranked player in 2020-2021 and a fourth in 2021. ' is a movement in which fans are divided, but one thing we can agree on is that the faux-projects for the upcoming season become much more interesting.
Draft Wire comrade Luke Easterling recently came up with a new model with an upset order and the Jags got a very interesting result:
After arguably exchanging the league's best corner in Jalen Ramsey, the Jags obviously have a gaping hole in the lineup. This scenario allows them to fill that void with the best possible prospect in the draft class and the most recent of a long line of talented artists in production stop to get out of Columbus.
As our own Daniel Griffis pointed out earlier this week, the 2020 class looks strong in the corner half, which is a good thing for Jacksonville. Landing Okouda would be great for the Jags after losing the unhappy Ramsey. Okudah is one of the hottest names in the draft for now, and it's easy to understand why. Most experts tend to admire his athleticism, his hip fluidity and his ceiling as a man-to-man defender. Okudah is no slouch in the zone blanket either and he has shown it repeatedly in the Ohio State system that uses a combination of blankets.
Later, Easterling gave the Jags a versatile offensive weapon with their brilliant new Rams pick.
After replacing Jalen Ramsey with his first-round pick earlier, the Jags can use one of the choices they've got back to give their offense the # 1 receiver they so badly need. Shenault is a complete prospect with size and explosiveness who does his best after the shot.
With just under 300 yards and two touchdowns, Shenault did not get the most anticipated stats from him this year, but he's evolving into a fundamental muscle tension, which he's still not 100% at. However, before the injury, he was a monster when it came to scoring after the match and college defensemen simply struggled to get him into the field.
In addition, he proved his effectiveness from several places in the Colorado Offensive, playing outside, in the slot and as a wild quarterback. With good offensive spirit, the Jags could give the defensive coordinators the match of his versatility, while giving Nick Foles or Gardner Minshew II a player who also represents a dangerous vertical threat.
