The Jacksonville Jaguars elected to address the defense with their two first-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, selecting C.J. Henderson and K’Lavon Chaisson. But with the No. 42 pick in the second round, the Jaguars drafted Laviska Shenault.

By taking Shenault, the Jaguars add yet another wide receiver to their receiving corps. It’s safe to assume that Gardner Minshew won’t complain about the number of weapons he’ll have in the team’s passing attack next season.

Though, besides Shenault, Jacksonville has to configure ways to get the ball to the likes of D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, and Keelan Cole. At the least, that seems like a good problem to have if you are Jay Gruden — the new offensive coordinator of the Jaguars.

Even though he was a second-round pick, fans may want to temper their expectations for Shenault in his rookie campaign. With that in mind, here is what to expect from Shenault in his first season with the Jaguars in 2020.
