The NFL Draft shook up a number of depth charts. Many veterans whose roles looked secure now have questionable futures. But on the flip side, many veterans whose futures were in doubt leading up to the draft dodged a bullet. Several teams were expected to add to their depth charts at various positions, but many chose not to. Which players had the biggest wins because of who their teams did not draft early last weekend?

Gardner Minshew

A number of mocks had Tua Tagovailoa falling to Jacksonville at No. 9. Although the Jaguars did eventually draft a QB, it wasn’t until the sixth round when they took Jake Luton out of Oregon State. Of course, Gardner Minshew himself was a sixth-round pick. But considering his performances last season, the lack of early draft capital spent on a QB means the team has some confidence he’s their QB of the future. Minshew was a QB1 in six different games last season and only dropped below a QB2 rank twice.

Instead of drafting a QB, Jacksonville gave Minshew some intriguing weapons, including early-second-round pick Laviska Shenault. Although a handful of the names speak to the risks, it would be hard to have a more exciting group of top comps than Shenault.
