Round 1, 25th Overall

1
Rashawn Slater
OL Northwestern

Cam Robinson has grown into a solid left tackle for the Jaguars, but he is unlikely to ever be one of the top-tier players at the position in the league. Robinson will hit the open market as a free agent this offseason and will likely look to be paid like a true franchise left tackle. Paying Robinson a massive contract this offseason would be a mistake. I would fully support the Jags bringing back Robinson for a fair price, but they need to back out if the price gets out of hand.

Whether Jacksonville brings back Robinson or not, Rashawn Slater stands out as a strong pick for the team. If Robinson is gone, he fits right in as their new left tackle. If Robinson is back, either player could slide inside to guard and be an impact player at that position.

Slater is quick off of the ball and powerful at the point of attack. He is a tough and aggressive player who shines in the run game and is at his best when he is allowed to attack. Slater also shows good footwork in pass protection and anchors against power at an extremely high level. Make no mistake about it, Slater is a high-level prospect who would be a great addition to the Jaguars’ offensive line mix.

Round 2, 34th Overall

Azeez Ojulari
EDGE Georgia

Azeez Ojulari is one of the most exciting defensive prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft class and would be a massive steal for the Jacksonville Jaguars in this range. Ojulari is an extremely athletic edge rusher who can consistently win with speed around the edge. He is incredibly quick off of the ball and shows tremendous natural bend, getting low and getting around the corner in an instant.

Ojulari is undoubtedly a gifted player who has a lot of upside as a pass rusher, but he can also hold his own against the run. Ojulari sets the edge well and can knife through and make plays in the backfield as well. Snagging Ojulari here and pairing him with Josh Allen would give the Jacksonville Jaguars an incredibly exciting and talented duo at arguably the most important defensive position.
