After a 1-0 start to the 2020 regular season, there were some that remained optimistic about the Jaguars. Soon thereafter, the team would experience a 15-game slide that resulted in the organization cleaning house. Going with a true outside-of-the-box hire, the team opted to hire Trent Baalke and Urban Meyer—two individuals that had a previous working relationship, but neither to this magnitude on this level.

Meyer enters the NFL as a first-time head coach on the professional level, but his first draft class was indicative of what he knows on the college level. Early on, his philosophy was to collect many players that were former highly-touted recruits. Coming from the college ranks, it was a clear tendency that was revealed through the first few selections. In order to build what will be known as the foundation of his new team, he elected to go that route as that’s what he knows best from his previous days as a successful college evaluator.
