The Jacksonville Jaguars will continue the rebuilding process in the 2021 NFL Draft. It would be an absolute shock if the team did not take Trevor Lawrence with their first pick in the draft.

However, the real question becomes what will the team do with the other 11 choices it has in the 2021 NFL Draft. It would make sense if the Jaguars and new head coach Urban Meyer used at least a couple of these picks on some of his former college players from Ohio State.

The biggest need for the Jacksonville Jaguars is finding a franchise quarterback.

For the second straight year, the team changed quarterbacks during the middle of the season and overall saw three quarterbacks take significant snaps last season. The only quarterback who might have a future with the team is Gardner Minshew but that will likely be as a backup.

In Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville gets one of the highest-rated quarterbacks to come into the NFL in recent memory. Lawrence has all the skills to be successful in the NFL including a high football IQ, strong arm, and enough mobility to be a running threat.

This pick is really a no-brainer for the team and would be one of the worst decisions in franchise history if they took someone else with this pick.

Even with Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer recently stating that there is no need to completely rebuild the team’s offensive line, left tackle is still a need.

This is a need as Cam Robinson will be a free agent in a couple of week’s and it is unsure if the team will resign him. Even if the team resigns Robinson, tackle could still be a need as right tackle Jawaan Taylor had his struggles last season.

Texas offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi has the potential to become a starter for Jacksonville at left tackle. He has impressive size coming in at 6-foot-7 and has the long wingspan to go along with his size. He also has the quick feet needed to play left tackle.

One more reason Cosmi might make sense here is that he has the versatility to play either left or right tackle.
