After a stunning series of events, including Daniel Jones being drafted by the Giants and the Raiders taking Clelin Ferrell — commonly mocked in the late teens to early twenties — the Jaguars had their pick of some exceptionally talented players.
Tom Coughlin and company went with the 2018 SEC defensive player of the year, defensive end Josh Allen. Allen was one of the most productive pass rushers in college football over the last three seasons, recording 31 sacks in his final three years for the Wildcats. In 2018 Allen recorded an SEC record 17 Sacks (since the NCAA started keeping official sack records). In the end his elite production and skill set, combined with his athletic ability, was too much for the Jaguars to pass on.
One of the most talented defensive players in the draft, Allen will likely take over Dante Fowler's former role as the third edge rusher on the Sacksonville defensive line. It's also possible that the Jaguars could move Calais Campbell to the three tech position and start Allen opposite Yannick Ngakoue.
The Jaguars next pick is #38 overall in the second round.
