  • Jaguars' Dontavius Russell: Drafted by Jacksonville

    The Jaguars selected Russell in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 235th overall.

    Russell is a hulking prospect at 6-foot-3 and 319 pounds who has potential as an interior defensive lineman. While he was pretty much a starter at Auburn the day he stepped on campus, Russell's technique was historically a problem according to scouts. However, with NFL-caliber coaching, it's possible he could develop into a defensive anchor in the middle of a defense. In Jacksonville, he'll compete for a depth role behind Marcell Dareus and Abry Jones.
