The Jaguars now have seven picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, including one selection in the first, second, fourth, sixth and seventh (acquired from Baltimore in a trade for OL Luke Bowanko on Sept. 2, 2017) rounds, as well as two selections in the third round (one acquired from the Los Angeles Rams in today’s trade). The Jaguars have eight picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, including one selection in the first, second, third, fourth, sixth and seventh rounds, as well as two selections in the fifth round (one acquired from the Los Angeles Rams in today’s trade).

In 2018, he’s registered five tackles, 2.0 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. In 2017, he recorded a career-high 8.0 sacks and played in all 16 regular season games. Fowler recorded a career-high 32 tackles in 2016 after missing his rookie season with a knee injury.
