Jags Draft DaVon Hamilton; Adding DL Depth

The Jaguars add another piece to the defense and draft DaVon Hamilton. They seem determined to fix the defense. Hamilton brings a strong rush defense with the ability to rush the passer when needed.

On top of the Titan’s Derrick Henry, the Colts added Jonathan Taylor to their rushing attack, and Hamilton should be a key piece in shutting them down.

Working in his favor is the presence of Josh Allen and newly added K’Lavon Chaisson. The attention offensive lines will pay to them should open up some gaps to create pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

DaVon Hamilton recorded 10.5 tackles for loss and six sacks, more than any Buckeye not named Chase Young. He is still extremely raw having played no more than 357 snaps in a season at Ohio State and only blossomed as a fifth year senior. Despite playing limited snaps, he had a higher pressure rate than new Panthers DT Derrick Brown.


Jaguars draft pick DaVon Hamilton also fits the mold the front office is looking for. He approaches everything with a quiet, team-oriented approach. When talking to reporters after being selected, he declined to talk about his strengths and just said he is happy to be a part of the team. He is more of a project at this point, but the Jags hope they have another piece in recreating “Sacksonville”.
