The Jaguars won the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on Sunday, but the arrival of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is not the only reason for Jacksonville’s optimism.
In addition to the No. 1 pick in the draft, the Jaguars also received a lot of additional picks in the trade, plus more cap space than any other team in 2021.
The Jaguars have the first and fourth round picks of the Rams traded by Jalen Ramsey. The Jaguars also have a second-round pick for the Vikings traded by Yannick Ngakoue and a fifth-round pick for the Browns traded by Ronnie Harrison.
According to a report from OverTheCap.com, when most people in the NFL lacked cap space, the Jaguars entered the 2021 offseason with about $75 million in cap space, the most in the league.
Therefore, this is not only related to Lawrence. This is also related to having the resources to build a good team around Lawrence. The Jaguar may be full of talent in the next few years.
