The Jacksonville Jaguars just got the best player in the NFL Draft in Kentucky’s Josh Allen.
With the No. 7 pick, the Jaguars have selected the 6-foot-6, 260-pound linebacker out of Montclair, New Jersey.
As a Kentucky Wildcat, Allen won the Chuck Bednarik Award, the Lott Trophy, and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, making him the consensus National Defensive Player of the Year. He was also named SEC Defensive Player of the Year, along with being a unanimous First Team All-SEC and All-American selection.
His senior season, Allen managed 51 total pressures, 14 sacks, nine QB hits, and 28 hurries. Over the course of four years at Kentucky, the former Wildcat accumulated 31.5 career sacks.
Now, Allen will take his talents to Jacksonville.
