To kick off day two of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Jaguars added Georgia GB Tyson Campbell to their draft haul. The Jaguars have now picked QB Trevor Lawrence, RB Travis Etienne, and Campbell.
Campbell, a 21-year-old junior, stands 6'1" and weighs in at 193-pounds. The former Bulldog is still a bit raw, especially when it comes to competing once the ball is in the air. But his length and recovery speed give him the potential to become a shutdown corner if he can develop his ball skills and tracking.
Campbell aligned primarily as an outside cornerback at Georgia, and projects to play the same role at the next level. He allowed a completion percentage of over 65 in primary coverage, allowing five touchdown passes, picking off one pass, and registering five pass break-ups during his final year in college.
Campbell grew up in south Florida and will return back to the Sunshine State. The former five-star recruit didn't quite live up to his billing in college, but at just 21-years-old, Campbell's best football could be ahead of him. This is another clear indication that the Jaguars are sticking to their board instead of reaching for needs, as the team has three-four quality cornerbacks already on the roster. Right or wrong, general manager Trent Baalke and head coach Urban Meyer appear to be sticking to their guns.
Campbell was not anywhere close to the top available prospect on the board. Several players who I believe should have been first round picks, including LB/S Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, S Trevon Moehrig, CB Asante Samuel Jr., EDGE Azeez Ojulari, OT Teven Jenkins, and TE Pat Freiermuth remain on the board.
The Jaguars' next pick is at 45 overall, followed by 65, 106, 130, 145, 170, and 249. The Jaguars still need a safety, defensive tackle, defensive end, tight end, and offensive tackle.
