September power rankings have pushed the Jags out of the top pick heading into their Week 1 opener at home against Indianapolis. This move is primarily attributed to the so-called "Continuity Rankings" that several media outlets have published in recent weeks. Here's the continuity scoring from ESPN. The teams that made a lot of off-season coaching and player moves are disadvantaged in this year of COVID --much more than usual. The elimination of pre-season games, OTA's, and minicamps may very well spell Clobberin' time for teams at the bottom of the list, at least early in the season.

The Jags fared quite well in continuity. Per ESPN's list, they're sitting at a lofty #8. Unfortunately, the Colts rank #3, and their QB change (Rivers) likely represents an upgrade over 2019.

"Tank for Trevor" takes on more meaning for the QB-needy teams in the 2021 Draft. What earlier-on had looked like a draft class with potentially three top-10 QBs (Lawrence, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance) is looking dicier. Both Fields and Lance have just one year of starting experience, and both their schools (Ohio State, North Dakota State) have seen their seasons postponed until winter. I personally cannot see these guys entering the draft with a one-season body of work, they've got to play the season out even if in early 2021.

Here's hoping that Gardner Minshew continues to improve in 2020, making the selection of a QB in the 2021 Draft a non-necessity.

Before digging into the Etienne pick, first a word about the trade of Yannick Ngakoue: Good riddance. We are all aware that the toxic atmosphere created by Tom Coughlin resulted in 25% of the player grievances in the NFL being filed by Jaguar players. Most sucked it up like professionals. I personally cannot recall where a big-time "complainer" has moved onto a new team and made it a better place. Further, these players tend not to experience longevity in the NFL, I'd be surprised if Ngakoue is able to duplicate his 2017/2018 success in Minnesota.

Big news keeps coming out of 1 TIAA Bank Field Drive as GM Dave Caldwell showed the door to 2017 4th-pick-overall, Leonard Fournette, citing a lack of trade interest. The team indicated that Fournette's north-south running style doesn't fit the team's current strategy. The only drafted RB on the Jags' roster is 2019 5th-rounder Ryquell Armstead, whose rookie season did not portend great things: 35 carries for 108 yards, and a 3.1 YPC average. The team will also evidently rely on journeyman pass-catching RB Chris Thompson (career stats) and Devine Ozigbo (career 9 carries for 27 yards) to keep opposing defenses honest.

Needless to say, the Jags will need to upgrade at the RB position and now with 4 picks in the first two rounds (adding a second RD2 with the Ngakoue trade), expect Caldwell to pull the trigger on a top tailback. Travis Etienne is already one of CFB's best RBs ever --he currently ranks #134 with a full season to go. With a potential 1600 yards in 2020, he'll move up into the Top-10 of all time. Etienne became a 3rd-down back in 2019, catching 37 balls for 432 yards and 4 TD. Should he repeat his 2000 yards-from-scrimmage performance in 2020, he'll move into the Top-10 all-time CFB in that category, too. Here are Etienne's highlights from 2019 --draw your own conclusions.

JAGUARS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
