Round 2, 33rd Overall: George Pickens, WR, Georgia

The Jacksonville Jaguars could select Hutchinson and make a crazy move up to get Williams if he is indeed their guy to give Trevor Lawrence a lightning fast receiver, but they can stick here and bet on potential as well. It’s hard to know much about the rumored maturity issues with George Pickens without talking to him and relying on the league, but it sounds like he will slide.

How far? Maybe the Jaguars do go with him here. He has the potential to be that number one, “X” type that the league is still looking for. The flashes are outstanding, from positioning well at the catch point to acrobatic catches. His hands are great, there’s explosion in a straight line, and he’s shown the ability to work blind spots.

Round 3, 65th Overall: Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State

Is linebacker a sneaky need for the Jaguars? Maybe because of the Foye Oluokun signing, but unless you’re a big believer in Shaq Quarterman, day two is an excellent place to look for a linebacker.

Troy Andersen is certainly a bit raw in the instincts and run fits department, but he tested out of his mind and is a phenomenal athlete to potentially pair with a seasoned vet. He can fly around as a run and chase linebacker, and has plenty of speed and transitional quickness to hang in coverage.

Round 3, 70th Overall: Jamaree Salyer, OL, Georgia

Now it’s time to finally help Lawrence by investing up front. The argument for tackle at one makes sense, because after Charles Cross, tackle is rough. Jamaree Salyer would bring more stability to the interior. His balance, anchor, and quick feet are perfect in a phone booth for left guard, and he got reps at both spots down in Mobile.
