What are the Jaguars getting in Correa?
Like someone who lied confidently on their resume, K’Lavon Chaisson is not good against the run no matter what he said when he came out in the draft.
The Jaguars looked like they were going to try to let him figure it out while supplementing him with some bigger bodies, however, it isn’t working like they hoped. Throw in some injuries at linebacker and EDGE and you can see why they made a move like this.
Luckily, Correa is a do-it-all type of defender who has experience lining up as a true EDGE in a three-man or four-man front, and he also played some off the ball linebacker in a classic 4-3 look at times in Baltimore.
Correa is coming off of his best year in 2019, and while the Titans let him test free agency, they were quick to bring him back once they didn’t instantly get Clowney.
For a team like the Jaguars who lack any sort of leadership or experience winning in their front seven, you can see why they might want someone like Correa in their locker room beyond what he can bring to the field.
I think his role in Jacksonville will be as an EDGE on 1st and 2nd down who moves out of the lineup to make room for Josh Allen and Chaisson on 3rd downs. That was his role last year with Roberson coming in to clean up pass rush situations while Correa did the dirty work.
