Selection Comment - Pick #27

Return to Mock Draft

Jacksonville
Devin Lloyd
27

Utah

OLB



The Jaguars traded picks 33, 106 and 180 to snag Devin Lloyd at pick 27. Lloyd is pretty much unanimously considered the top LB in this year's class. A former safety and receiver, Lloyd saw time at both "Mike" and "Will" at Utah. He has sideline-to-sideline range and solid closing speed to deliver the tackle on ball carriers whatever running route they choose to take. He is also a smart and instinctive commander on the field. In 14 games last season, Lloyd tallied 111 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 4 INTs, 6 pass deflections, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and 2 defensive TDs.

Lloyd is this year's version of Micah Parsons. Add in top pick Travon Walker and the Jaguars' front seven just got a whole lot better. For the value alone, I actually like this pick better.

Grade: A
