It was going to be easy to name Shenault as a breakout candidate in 2021, as he was the clear-cut No. 2 option behind D.J. Chark on the Jaguars depth chart. Suddenly, the Jaguars have a new play-caller, a proven veteran receiver (Marvin Jones), and a first-round running back (Travis Etienne) they're calling a wide receiver. This has created some doubt in the role that Shenault will play under Urban Meyer. There's upside in selecting him as a bench receiver, though, as Trevor Lawrence should be a massive upgrade at quarterback, and it's not like Chark/Jones haven't dealt with injuries over the last couple years (Jones is also getting up there in age). Shenault is purely an upside pick that you stash on your bench until you find out just how he's being used.
