NFL Mock Draft 2013: Jacksonville Jaguars Select Werner

Fansided has released its weekly mock draft again and the Jaguars continue to stick with defensive linemen.  This time it’s the all-to-common pick of Bjoern Werner.

I like Werner and think that he could be an asset for the Jaguars, especially since they are so desperately short on consistently good pass rushers.  Fansided’s Josh Hill seems to agree:

The Jaguars are under new leadership from top to bottom but don’t think that means they’re going to take a quarterback. The Jaguars need a pass rusher to come off the edge and get pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Werner is hands down the best edge rusher in this years class and he’s quickly risen to the top of the draft. Had the Chiefs a need for a pass rusher, Werner would be in discussion for the No. 1 pick, so Jacksonville’s getting a stud in the former Seminole.

In this week’s mock, Hill has the Chiefs taking Luke Joeckel first overall, resulting in a big opportunity for any team wanting quarterback Geno Smith to take him.  The Bills finally pull the trigger at number eight.

As the combine approaches, we’ll have to see how things shake out for Werner as the other premier pass rushers in this year’s draft class as they prove their athleticism to the NFL teams.

Check here for the entire mock draft.
