JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars focused on the offensive line in Round 1.
They also focused on acquiring draft selections.
Anton Harrison, an offensive tackle from the University of Oklahoma, on Thursday night was selected by the Jaguars No. 27 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Jaguars traded their original '23 Round 1 selection, No. 24 overall, to the New York Giants for the No. 25 selection. They also received the Nos. 160 (Round 5) and 240 selection (Round 7) in that trade. They then traded the No. 25 selection to the Buffalo Bills for the No. 27 selection and the No. 130 selection (Round 4).
