It honestly wouldn’t shock me to see Urban Meyer take Najee Harris here. He’s always been about running the football and unless Carlos Hyde rediscovers his old magic, the Jaguars are lacking in that department.

Of course, there are some other really good running backs in this draft, and there’s a good chance one could be had later in the draft.

Moehrig is an impact defender and intercepted six passes over the past two seasons. He’s got elite size for the position and even has a background in corner.

Leaving the first round of the 2021 NFL draft with the top safety and top quarterback isn’t a bad haul.

LB. Zaven Collins. 26. player. Scouting Report. Tulsa. 53. Pick Analysis

Some players just bring a lot of different things to the table to Zaven Collins is one of them as last season, he racked up four sacks, four interceptions and 54 tackles, with 7.5 for loss.

Cleveland has a clear need at linebacker and Collins who is 6-foot-5, could fill it. He might look more like an edge rusher, but he holds up pretty well in coverage and returned two interceptions for touchdowns last season.
