NASHVILLE, TN Kentucky's Josh Allen, the national defensive player of the year (Bednarik Award) and a fast, physical linebacker, went to Jacksonville at the seventh spot.

The Jaguars have some significant needs on offense, but Allen generally was projected to go in the top five picks.

It's the second successive draft in which Josh Allen went seventh. Buffalo took the Wyoming quarterback by the same name in 2018.
