Staying in the mocking mood, here’s my attempt at a full Jaguars only 7-round mock.

I’m going to present multiple players and multiple scenarios, so try to keep up. I’m using my mock as a reference for the 1st round and Draft Countdown, NFL Draft Scout, DraftTek, other sites and BigCatCountry’s interest board in order to fill out the full 7 rounds. I’ve linked each player to their NFL Draft Scout profile. Enjoy.

ROUND 1

  • If the Jaguars stay put @ 7 –Fletcher Cox, DT/DE — I just don’t see someone that I’m “all in” for at 7. I’ll stick with the rising hype of Fletcher who fills both a talent roll and need for depth at DT. He could potentially play DE on run downs and team up with Alualu on passing downs, giving the Jaguars a more formidable defensive line either way.
    Alternate — Quinton Coples, DE — A guy that could potentially bookend the DE position. Could flip inside on passing downs to get someone like Chick on the outside. Cullen could problem handle his ‘work ethic’ issues.
  • If the Jaguars trade back to ~15 — Stephen Gilmore, CB — Gilmore’s stock is rising and he might be the #2 CB by the time all is said and done. Drafting Gilmore gives the Jags a future starter to play along side Cox for the next 5-8 years. The secondary becomes really formidable if he pans out.
    Alternate —  Whitney Mercilus, DE — A nonstop motor DE who fits the mold of the Jaguars persistent, hard working defense.
  • If the Jaguars trade back to ~25 –Stephen Hill, WR — How could anyone resist Hill at this point in the draft. 800+ yards on less than 30 catches? Pretty amazing. If anyone can get the full potential out of him, it seems like Sullivan would be that man. Hill could be the jump ball guy the Jags have been looking for. He could also be the guy that finally causes opposing defenses to stop playing 8 in the box.
    Alternate —  Coby Fleener, TE — What, a TE in 1st . . . again? Yes, you heard it here first. Fleener would provide the offense with another good TE with which to work. TE seems to play a prominent role in Mularkey’s playaction offense and could excel.

From here on I’m just going to list 3+ guys so that no matter how many picks the Jaguars have in that particular round, I’ll have my bases covered. 

ROUND 2

  •  Chandler Jones, DE — I don’t think he’ll be here, in fact, I think he could sneak into the first round, but if he’s available, he offers good upside. — Brother of Jon Jones
  •  Alshon Jeffery, WR — Big, physical WR who has upside. If Sullivan is as good as they say he is, he could help Jeffery be all that he can be. — Team Captain
  •  Bobby Massie, OT — Massie is a big boy with RT potential. He could be drafted and play as the swing man along the offensive line, filling in where necessary until he takes over.
  •  Vinny Curry, DE — If the Jaguars wanted a pass rusher and hadn’t gotten one up to this point, Curry offers the prototypical up tempo player that they covet. — Team Captain
  • Lavonte David, LB – Russell Allen is the only real backup of note at LB. David could play all three spots, much like the Jag’s very own Daryl Smith. David would do well behind the Jaguars front four, even as a rookie. — Team Captain

Round 3

  • Brian Quick, WR –Big, strong receive with good (not great) speed. Productive against lesser competition.
  • Chris Givens, WR — Adequate size and good speed. Productive in the ACC.
  • AJ Jenkins, WR — Slot receiver potential. Speed. — 3-time Academic All-American
  • Dwight Bentley, CB — Probably a Nickel corner, but has the skills to play in the NFL. Coleman won’t last forever.
  • Tyrone Crawford, DE — Blue collar DE.
  • Nigel Bradham, OLB – Physical freak who could stand to learn behind some of the best technicians in the game in Poz and D. Smith. Duffner would probably love the potential.
  • Ladarius Green, TE – Athletic playmaker who could fill the same sort of role Zach Miller fills. Could potentially bulk up and be a better all-around prospect.

Round 4

  • T.Y. Hilton, WR — Speedster, with returning potential.
  • Michael Egnew, TE – Catches the ball well, good size, needs to block better.
  • Josh Chapman, DT — This is a personal leaning here. He’s a lunch pail guy. Hard working, plays tough. Not the best but could exist as a rotational guy on the DL.
  • Ryan Broyles, WR – Injured? Who cares. He is a good productive player on his way back from injury. Could be had for cheap.
  • SLEEPER ALERTChris Greenwood, CB – great size and great speed. Knock? DIII player.

Round 5

  • Chris Rainey, WR/RB — Homer pick. All speed, all the time. Teach him to run a route and he could be a great slot main. Could easily be a return man.
  • Jaye Howard, DT — No homer pick. I think he has the skills to be a good rotational guy on the DL.
  • Joe Adams, KR/PR/WR — Return man who timed slower than anticipated. Still has game speed.
  • Devon Wylie, WR/KR/PR — Return man first, slot receiver second. Great speed and shiftiness.
  • Jake Bequette, DE — High motor DE who showed better every year.
  • Justin Bethel, CB/FS — Small school. Decent production. Decent speed. Jaguars have shown interest.
  • Josh Norman, CB – Good size and speed, SMALL SCHOOL, RAWR.

    If I was choosing from your list for rounds 2-7, I’d be thrilled if it ended up with:
    2. Chandler Jones
    3. AJ Jenkins
    4. Michael Egnew
    5. Chris Rainey
    6. Coty Sensabaugh
    7. Dale Moss
    And hopefully we can trade back in the first. Good stuff!

    This is the most spineless mock draft Ive EVER seen. Pick a guy and stick with him. You’re throwing darts dude. You cant say it will be this guy….this guy…..or this guy. Thats weak man. I’m not saying you’re wrong…..and with that many guesses per pick, I’m sure you’ll get SOMEBODY right. But choose one guy per round, and own it!

     @NickelandDime All I’ve done is list possibilities for each round, nothing more. Be my guest if you want to nail down an exact pick for all seven round without knowing the number of picks or what every single team before it the Jaguars pick has done. What I’m trying to do is inform the reader as to who to expect come draft day, especially if the Jaguars trade down.
     
    If you want a more thorough mock in the manner of which you so demand, look at my round one mock I did a few days ago.

    Its not my job, as the reader, to create a mock draft. I wouldnt go to a restaurant as a customer and start taking everyone’s order, because thats the waiter’s job. My job is to enjoy, and if theres something I dont enjoy, to vocalize it. You still have too many candidates per round. Seriously, you need to narrow it down to 2-3 per round at the most, because as it stands now, it looks like what you’re saying by this mock alone is that anyone and everyone is a possible draft pick…..which does not help me out at all. If I claimed to know everything about football, I wouldnt be here reading all of your articles. I understand what you were going for, but its too broad. I will not look at any of these guys because its too much work.
     
    one more thing….I’m not personally attacking you, just having a good time on this website is all!

     @NickelandDime I believe that Mr. Love’s goal was not give an exact pick to anticipate (as he mentioned, it is terribly difficult with 32 picks per round and seven rounds and a constant jostling of position by teams), but rather to inform the reader. 
     
    Not anyone and everyone will be picked.  But Mr. Love did outline fairly well which rounds some players may be picked in and who the Jags may target of those players.
     
    With a goal of informing, this was an incredibly handy mock.
