28 – Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars were once a feared defense, loaded to the gills with some of the best young defensive talents in the NFL. Inside linebacker Myles Jack would be a significant boost to the Rams defense and would be well-timed for the second half of the schedule.
The Rams have not been good in the running game. When the offense has the football, the Rams struggle to run with the ball. When the defense is on the field, they struggle to stop the run. Getting a player to enforce the middle of the defense would be the ideal solution, and Jack is an ideal player for the job.
Myles Jack is a former teammate of defensive back Jalen Ramsey and has been a solid defender for Jacksonville for the past six seasons. Originally hailing from UCLA, the 6-foot-1 244-pound backers has played in 79 NFL games and started in all but one. While he is solid in run defense, he is surprisingly effective at pass defense over the middle as well.
The Jaguars may need some coaxing to part ways with Jack, but they are clearly not ready to compete for the NFL playoffs just yet. Meanwhile, Jack is reaching his NFL peak. He is proficient at all aspects of defense, recording 441 tackles, 6.5 quarterback sacks, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 17 tackles for a loss.
He is an ideal piece to bolster the Rams’ defense. And his own production would likely spike from the moment he plays in the shadow of defensive lineman Aaron Donald.
