Chicago Bears draft outlook: 2020, Jacksonville selects K’Lavon Chaisson
K’Lavon Chaisson started three games in his debut season with the Jaguars posting 19 total tackles with 12 solo tackles and seven assist tackles. He finished with three TFL’s, nine quarterback hits, one pass deflection and one solo sack against Tennessee in Week 2. Drafted at the age of 21, Chaisson proves to be a building block for the Jaguars defense moving forward.
Notable selections after Chaisson include Justin Jefferson (WR) to the Minnesota Vikings at Pick 24, Brandon Aiyuk (WR) to the San Francisco 49ers at Pick 25, Patrick Queen (LB) to the Baltimore Ravens at Pick 28, Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB) to the Kansas City Chiefs at Pick 32, and the Chicago Bears first selection of Cole Kmet (TE) at Pick 43 in the second round.
The Vikings landed a star in Jefferson with the 24th overall pick. The former LSU Tiger posted 88 receptions on 125 targets with 1,400 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie season. He’s at the top of most people’s “Rookie of the Year” lists with Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers making a strong case as well. Aiyuk is another name that flew under the radar on a depleted 49ers roster finishing with 60 receptions on 96 targets, 825 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns.
This year’s draft is expected to have another deep class of wide receivers. The Bears could find a playmaker in the back-half of the first round if guys like Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller or Cordarrelle Patterson are no longer on the roster.
