The Jacksonville Jaguars will have the first overall pick for the second straight draft.
Last season they drafted Trevor Lawrence, who has the skills to run their offense for a long time.
But while the former Clemson standout player’s selection was a no-brainer, the Jaguars haven’t decided who to pick in 2022.
Sports betting places Georgia’s Travon Walker as the likely number one pick.
There was also talk of Ikem Ekwonu’s rise to the top spot.
However, NFL insider Kyle Brandt argues for the Jaguars to make a solid choice.
For Jaguars. You need a double, guys. Do not strike again trying to reach 500 feet. https://t.co/SoGxkUFUES

Brandt tweeted: “For the Jaguars. You need a double, guys. Stop punching while trying to reach 500 feet.
He also pointed to the team’s futility and draft mistakes over the past few years.
Along with having had four head coaches over the past seven years, they have also averaged 4.2 wins per year over the past decade.
Of their ten first-round picks before Lawrence, only two are still with the team, and many are out of the league.
Brandt defended Aidan Hutchinson
The advantage is the biggest blow against Michigan point carrier Aidan Hutchinson.
Some football pundits say Walker has the ability to become a better player in the long run.
However, Brandt argued that Hutchinson is a solid option despite the low cap.
He added that Hutchinson’s measurables are comparable to those of Myles Garrett and Khalil Mack.
On his last appearance on Good Morning Football, Brandt added: “I’m watching this guy, and there’s no way he’s gonna be a bust. I don’t know if he’s gonna be Reggie White, but I know he’s gonna be Reggie White. will be solid as a rock.
The Jaguars only have one day to think about Brandt’s argument.
If they choose Hutchinson over Walker, the NFL insider has his case closed.
