The Jaguars addressed their defense in round one with cornerback CJ Henderson and EDGE K'Lavon Chaisson. Dave Caldwell and company kicked off day two with an explosive offensive weapon, wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr.
With their second pick on day two of the draft, at 73 overall, the Jaguars selected defensive tackle, Davon Hamilton, out of Ohio State. Hamilton was a game wrecker for Ohio State during his senior year in 2019 and proved to be extremely stout against the run. He has a high motor, and at 6'4'' and 320 pounds, he'll be tough for interior offensive lineman to handle. Hamilton's strength at the point of attack is undeniable. He used strong hands and quickness to wreak havoc in the Big Ten last season. Hamilton racked up six sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss last season.
Hamilton will compete for reps at nose tackle or 1-tech from day one. Al Woods will be stiff competition for Hamilton, but this young defensive lineman should be able to find the field early on, even if it's in a rotation. The Jaguars defensive front now has more than enough talent and depth to compete at a high level in 2020 and beyond.
Jacksonville still has immediate needs at offensive tackle, offensive guard, safety, and potentially running back, depending on what happens with Leonard Fournette. The Jaguars don't have any more day two picks, but with eight selections on the final day of the draft, Dave Caldwell could trade back up into the third round if there's a player he covets.
