In Devin Lloyd News...
- Devin Lloyd was taken #27 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He promptly stole the show by picking up the NFL commissioner on stage.
- Lloyd on the now-viral moment.
- I love how excited Lloyd is. If you watch to the end of this clip you can hear him do the famous Jacksonville “DUUUUUVALLLL” cheer and a joyful laugh afterward. Many fans were commenting that it’s the best player “DUVAL” they have heard in a long time.
- Lloyd invited Kyle Whittingham and LB coach Colton Swan to join him and his family in Las Vegas for the Draft.
- Coach Whitt on Lloyd going to the Jags.

- Lloyd’s draft fit was great. A lot of people are talking about the suit jacket lining, and rightly so, but those shoes look downright dangerous!
- Jacksonville is EXCITED for Devin Lloyd. I love it. I’ve seen lots of positive response from their fanbase. Many are more excited about him than their #1 overall pick.
Good morning to all you Devin Lloyd having beauties!— Jordan de Lugo (@jordandelugo) April 29, 2022
Still kind of in shock the Jaguars actually pulled the trigger. I know LB isn’t a value position but Lloyd will impact the game in sooooo many ways. I’ll break his entire game down shortly.
