Jacksonville Jaguars

Perfect draft pair: LSU RB Leonard Fournette (Round 1, pick 4); Colorado CB Chidobe Awuzie (Round 2, pick 35)

Brooks on Fournette: One common denominator for the most successful teams the Jaguars have had: the presence of a feature back who can get it done with power and explosiveness. Fournette could be the next one. They want to alleviate some of the pressure on QB Blake Bortles -- the best way to do that is to get him a workhorse like Fournette.

Jeremiah on Awuzie: This is a little bit of a luxury pick for a really good defense. The Jaguars got A.J. Bouye in free agency and they already have Jalen Ramsey. Those are two great, young corners. Now, you get Awuzie, who can play the nickel spot or safety. He's a very valuable commodity in this draft.
