Shenault will be utilized in the running game

Regardless of what Jacksonville does with Shenault in the aerial attack in 2020, he is going to be used in the team’s running game. Without a doubt, Leonard Fournette — barring a trade — is likely going to carry the majority of the workload once again next season.

While he plays the wide receiver position, Shenault is built like a running back. Listed at 6-foot-1, nearly 230 pounds, Shenault runs with an intention to initiate contact with defenders. His uncanny ability to break tackles coupled with his impressive quickness allows him to be a dangerous weapon in any offense.

In his three seasons at Colorado, he carried the ball 42 times for 280 yards and seven touchdowns. Given his ability to create with the ball in hands, the Jaguars should utilize him on jet sweeps and even direct snaps to add another wrinkle to their offense.
