The Jacksonville Jaguars are making big changes with their organization, as they recently got rid of Tom Coughlin, and have now let their offensive coordinator go. Jon DeFilippo did a nice job bringing sixth-round quarterback Gardner Minshew along in 2019, but in the end, the team decided it was time to move in a new direction.
On the other side of the ball, the Jaguars need to get better on all three levels, including at linebacker, and safety. With the No. 9 overall selection, they could bring in a guy who could fill both voids, as Isaiah Simmons from Clemson is by far the most versatile defensive player available in this draft class.
Many though the Jaguars had enough talent to challenge in the AFC South last season, but it appears that they are going to go back to the drawing board in 2020. Whether or not it is Minshew or Nick Foles starting at quarterback, the bottom line is the defense needs to be better, and Simmons can help them accomplish that this offseason.
It is still pretty incredible to me that the Cleveland Browns have a top-10 pick this year, as they went into the 2019 season with so much hope, and hype. Heading into his second season as the starter, quarterback Baker Mayfield was supposed to dominate, but instead, he appeared in more commercials than he did victories.
Looking ahead, you have to think Mayfield turns things around, and he will have a young offensive head coach in Kevin Stefanski in 2020. Stefanski replaces Freddie Kitchens, who lasted only one year with the team, and really lost control of the organization as the team severely underachieved this past season.
In the 2020 NFL Draft, the Browns would be wise to bring in some offensive line help, and Jedrick Wills Jr. from Alabama is one of the best of the bunch. Wills can play both sides of the line, and if Mayfield is ever going to return to his rookie form, he needs more protection, as he has the weapons on the outside to do damage if he can get some time in the pocket.
