In the first three rounds of the draft the Jaguars added a workhorse running back with a rare combination of size and speed, a left tackle that projects to start sooner rather than later, and a pass rusher that will be the heir apparent to free agent signing Calais Campbell on the strong side.
Entering the final day of the draft the Jaguars still had several holes to fill. They needed a starting left guard and tight end and depth at cornerback.
All three positions had value players for the Jaguars with their fourth round pick.
With the 110th overall pick and the third pick of the fourth round the Jaguars selected wide receiver Dede Westbrook from Oklahoma. The electric playmaker projects as an excellent slot receiver and dynamic kick and punt returner. While his selection didn't address a need on offense or defense it does give the Jaguars a great special teams player.
Westbrook has off field issues, but he has the talent to be a year one impact player. He may spell trouble for Rashad Greene this offseason if he comes in with the right mindset.
The Jaguars still need to address guard, tight end, and cornerback.
