To say that the Jacksonville Jaguars had one of the best hauls in the 2016 NFL Draft would be an understatement. The team ended up with both cornerback Jalen Ramsey and linebacker Myles Jack, both of whom they were eyeing with the fifth overall pick in the first round.
The Washington Post recently shared an article from Pro Football Focus that shows off the top five teams that got the best value for their draft picks last weekend. The Jaguars were sitting right at the top of the list.
The Jaguars ended up rebuilding their defense by taking three defensive ends in Maryland’s Yannick Ngakoue, Montana’s Tyrone Holmes and Central Arkansas’s Jonathan Woodard as well as Notre Dame defensive tackle Sheldon Day. They also used a sixth-round selection on Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen to provide a good backup for Blake Bortles.
Jack was rated as PFF’s sixth overall prospect and he landed with the Jaguars with the 36th pick, while Day was PFF’s 34th overall player and he went to the team in the fourth round.
The Jacksonville Jaguars not only had the best haul in the 2016 NFL Draft, but they might have solidified their spot as the favorite to win the AFC South this year
