ANALYSIS: The Jags have had one of the best sets of defensive tackles in the NFL for a long time with Stroud and Henderson. Now that Stroud has been traded, there is a glaring hole alongside "Big" John Henderson.
Defensive End was going to be the primary choice, but the 5th best D.End in the draft is probably not the best bet for a first round pick. The biggest need on this team is definitely replenishing their defensive line, as a whole. That is why I believe Balmer is a good choice here.
Balmer has exceptional height. He is also very strong and athletic. He has pretty good speed and quickness, as well. If paired with a good veteran like Jon Henderson, it should help push Balmer to be as good as possible, as some critics doubt his ability to read plays and doubt his drive. Balmer has the physical tools to be a good fit in either a 4-3 or 3-4 set.
