Owner Shad Khan fired GM Dave Caldwell on Sunday. In Caldwell's 9-year tenure, there was one golden season (2017) where QB Blake Bortles brought the team within one game of the Super Bowl, succumbing to a 4th-quarter Patriots' comeback in the year when the Nick Foles-led Eagles upset the Pats. Until HC Doug Marrone took over, the Jags went 9 seasons without a winning record (2008 to 2016), averaging 4.5 wins per season (and 11.5 losses). However, success is fleeting. Through Week 12, the team stands at 12-31 since 2017. Caldwell has been with the team since 2013. Much is made about the fact that only the most recent three RD1 picks are still with the team, but scan Caldwell's roster of draft picks and it's surprising how many are still playing in the NFL.

Marrone and his staff, BTW, will be with the team until the end of the season; this is more a function of the new GM picking his own guy. On the positive side, Caldwell gifted the new GM with 11 draft picks and the league's 4th-best cap situation, and (probably) the #2 pick in the 2021 Draft, one where they'll be able to land the best-rated QB prospect in the franchise's history.

Justin Fields had his poorest outing of the season against #9 Indiana on 11/21, throwing 3 interceptions in the game --doubling his career pick total in one game. However, Fields overcame the poor throws for another Ohio State win.The Buckeyes have taken the field just 4 times in 2020 so far, with only 2 more games on the slate. Could Fields opt for another season at OSU? Possibly, but for now, he's squarely in the Jaguars' sights.

The new Jaguars' GM will have a ton of draft capital with which to build his new team --5 selections among the first 66 picks!. With a possible --now looking probable-- selection of QB Justin Fields with the #2-overall pick, the highest priority becomes protection of "The Asset" from the 50+ sack seasons that have hampered the development of rookie QBs in recent years. To wit: In the 2020 season, Joe Burrow was on his way to 50, with 32 in 10 games prior to his season-ending injury.

In the 2019 NFL Draft, many draft sources pegged Jags' ROT Jawaan Taylor as a top-10 pick; however, he wasn't selected until Jacksonville with pick #34 in RD2. Were GMs privvy to information not available to general draft community? In his second season, Taylor leads the NFL in total pressures allowed with 46. Cam Robinson is a little better, but still ranks in the bottom quartile with 26. Robinson is a free agent following this season, and it seems likely that the team will let Robinson walk without favorable financial concessions from his agency.

Using the Rams' pick, the Jags select Texas Tackle Sam Cosmi here. The durable Cosmi has made 34 consecutive starts in his career, but has chosen to opt out of the remainder of the 2020 season following the Black Friday loss to Iowa State.

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.
