Jaguars Go Defense in Post-Super Bowl Mock Draft


More from Jaguars Draft

The Jacksonville Jaguars played no part in the 2014 NFL postseason, but they’ll have a chance to improve the likelihood they participate next year during the offseason. With oodles of cap space and the third overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, general manager David Caldwell should be able to make this team more competitive.

There likely won’t be too much variation in who mock drafters around the web have the Jaguars taking at number 3 overall. For the most part, it’s been Leonard Williams or Randy Gregory, with the occasional misguided soul slotting in an offensive tackle.

Josh Sanchez over at Fansided didn’t stray too far from the norm in his first post-Super Bowl mock draft, as he has the Jaguars taking a defensive lineman.

"3. Leonard Williams, DE, USCGus Bradley knows all about the importance of a stellar defensive line from his time with the Seattle Seahawks, so it would not be a surprise to see him address the defensive side of the ball early in the 2015 NFL Draft. While the Jaguars could certainly look towards pass rushers, a well-rounded player like Williams is someone who could be the star they need for years to come."

While Williams seems like a completely logical choice, David Caldwell’s wizardry last year in hiding his intentions to take Blake Bortles should make us all take a step back. Williams is probably the frontrunner, but don’t be surprised if the Jaguars move down given a quarterback falls to 3 and a team is willing to move up.
