1010XL Draft Guide: Weekly roundtable #4

todayMarch 1, 2024


Welcome to the latest edition of our 2024 NFL Draft weekly roundtable! All the football heads at 1010XL/92.5 FM have gathered to preview the upcoming draft in April.

Today’s question: What’s an under-the-radar positional need for the Jaguars following the 2023 season?

Dave Campo: A lot of underlying needs are based on whether Calvin Ridley, Cam Robinson and Josh Allen are going to be here. With the chances being good that Allen will be with us, plus Travon Walker’s improvement (171/2 and 10 sacks), not many are talking about a 3rd down pass rusher which I would say is an underlying need!

Hays Carlyon: Receiver: Jags must prioritize interior of both sides of lines of scrimmage and corner, but receiver must be addressed as well.

Ryan “Hacker” Green: The Jaguars have needs all over the roster, but one that many don’t seem to be talking about is interior defensive line. They got pushed around towards the end of the year and that needs to change in 2024.

Matt Hayes: Wide receiver. At some point this franchise must draft and develop a wide receiver. There’s nothing wrong with taking a wide receiver Day1-2, especially if it’s an impact pick. It’s on your scouting department/GM to find as close of a lock as possible if picking a receiver that high.

Gus Logue: How about special teams? Punter Logan Cooke is signed under contract through 2025, but kicker Brandon McManus and returner Jamal Agnew are impending free agents who seem unlikely to return.

Tony Smith: Not because it hasn’t been discussed, but perhaps it hasn’t been discussed enough: Interior Defensive Line. The Jaguars spent over 30 million dollars on Roy Robertson-Harris, DaVon Hamilton and Foley Fatukasi in 2023. The team did an adequate job against the run last year, but got virtually nothing from any of their interior three defensive lineman against the pass. The three of them combined for 3.5 sacks (all from RRH). Maybe they get a big bounce back year from DaVon this year. They probably move on from Fatukasi. I’ve had interior pass rusher as my number three need since the offseason began behind interior offensive line and cornerback.
