. 52. Pick Analysis. AFC South. 1.. player. Scouting Report. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars will have a new head coach and probably a new general manager in 2021, with Doug Marrone and David Caldwell on their last legs. The team is 1-8 with an eight-game losing streak heading into Week 11, and if not for the Jets they’d be the lead dog in the race to tank for Trevor Lawrence.

If they secure the No. 2 overall pick in next April’s draft, or even a pick in the top-5 depending on how it shakes out, the Jaguars would be in prime position to draft Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields. Day would of course be intimately familiar with his current signal caller, and if nothing else he’d be able to offer an assessment (hopefully honest, good and bad) of Fields in a fully fleshed out interview to be a head coach in Jacksonville or anywhere else.

If the Day-Fields head coach/quarterback pairing leaves Columbus and stays intact in the NFL, Jacksonville is the easiest spot to envision it right now. The Jaguars will have plenty of options to consider, as they eye a new future after tearing down the 2017 AFC runner-up roster. Day could lead the charge into a new era, with his current quarterback following him to #Duuuval shortly after.
