Who Will The Jaguars Select In The First Round?

I took a look around the web today to see who all the mock drafts had the Jaguars picking in the upcoming draft.  This is assuming they stay at the number 8 spot which I could easily see them trading down to avoid a high rookie salary.  Now, in my mock draft  last week, I had OT Michael Oher from Ole Miss falling to us.  If he is there I have no doubt we will take him but the big question is whether or not someone else will take him first.  Let’s begin the rundown: - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor -  Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor – Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri - Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State - Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri - Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri (Lee) - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor (TJ) - Rey Maualuga, LB, USC - Rey Maualuga, LB, USC - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor – Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor – Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia - James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State – Andre Smith, OT, Alabama - Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri


So the most common names to come up are Jason Smith and Jeremy Maclin.  I don’t see the Jaguars picking either of these players in the draft.  I don’t think there is any way we take a receiver in the first round and I think that eventhough Jason Smith has a lot of upside, he is a reach that high in the draft as a converted TE.
