Cornerbacks should be a cornerstone for the Jaguars defense


After poaching A.J. Bouye from the Houston Texans in free agency, the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerbacks are in star-studded company entering 2017.

  • Paired with Jalen Ramsey, who’s coming off an impressive rookie season, the Jaguars now have a cornerback tandem that ranked as one of the league’s best, based off PFF’s 2016 grades.
  • Both Bouye and Ramsey finished 2016 among the top ten corners in pass breakups with 11 and 10, respectively.
  • An edge this Jaguars tandem has is youth is in their favor. They are the youngest corner duo of the top three tandems as Bouye turns 26 before the 2017 season, while Ramsey will be turning 23 this October.
  • While the Jaguars could go almost any which way with the No.4 pick on Thursday, it’s safe to say that cornerback is a position they will not need to address.
