Jacksonville Jaguars. Javon Kinlaw. 9. player. 52. . Defensive Lineman

The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of a handful of teams who hold multiple first round picks, this after trading away star cornerback Jalen Ramsey during the 2019 NFL season. Already this offseason, the Jaguars are continuing to make wholesale changes to their defense, including moving on from Calais Campbell and A.J. Bouye.

Looking at their defense, they are going to need upgrades everywhere, and they may choose to use the No. 9 overall pick on the defensive line. The loss of Campbell is going to be a tough one for the Jags, but if they can bring in Javon Kinlaw in the first round, he can help lessen the void left by the Pro Bowler.

Kinlaw is arguably the most versatile defensive linemen in this draft class, and would be an immediate impact player for the Jags. The AFC South is going to be wide open once again, and while the Jaguars have lost veteran talent on defense this offseason, they can get younger, and possibly better in the first round this April.

Offensive Tackle. Cleveland Browns. Mekhi Becton. 10. player. 53.

The Cleveland Browns are once again having a busy offseason, and in 2020, they are going to be relying on a first-time head coach for the second straight season. Freddie Kitchens was fired after only one season on the job, and has been replaced by Kevin Stefanski, and the newly-minted head coach has a lot of work cut out for him.

One area they need to get better is up front along the offensive line, and they should use the No. 10 overall pick to dip into an offensive tackle position group that is loaded this year. Mekhi Becton is a mountain of a man who can help this team immediately, and protecting Baker Mayfield has to be the priority for this franchise right now.

Mayfield took a major step backwards last season, but that does not mean that he cannot go back to the form he showed during his record-breaking rookie season. The Browns have the talent on both sides of the ball to be a playoff team next season, and the hope is that Stefanski is the right guy for the job, and Mayfield is still the real deal.
