Jacksonville Jaguars defense: Josh Allen, EDGE
I loved Josh Allen coming out of college, but I don’t understand why the Jacksonville Jaguars were the ones to draft him when they had so many other needs. However, when Yannick Ngakoue missed last week’s game, it made a lot more sense.
Not because the Jaguars were psychic and knew that they would need him so early, but because without Ngakoue their defense became a lot easier to attack even for a bad offensive line.
I loved Allen as a prospect and I think that he will become one of the better EDGEs in the AFC South by next year. So while it may be a relief for the Tennessee Titans if Ngakoue doesn’t play or if he is limited, the day doesn’t just become a breeze with him out.
Instead you have to adapt to the stronger Allen and concern yourself with how to block the talented rookie on the edge. Luckily, the Titans just got done blocking Justin Houston, Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon in back to back weeks so the team should be up to the task or at least they should understand what limitations they may have.
