We’ve gone through a 2015 two-round Jacksonville Jaguars mock draft and a three-round Jaguars mock draft so far and today we’re bringing you a four-round Jaguars mock draft as we get closer to the actual 2015 NFL Draft.
In the past two Jaguars mock drafts, I have highlighted getting the best player available and I have highlighted filling needs with high value as well. Like all mocks, it is possible that the Jaguars could go in a completely different direction than I am proposing, but where would the fun in a mock draft be if we weren’t constantly speculating?
So, without further ado, let’s jump in.

Amari Cooper is a talented wide receiver and one who could easily join the ranks of best wide receivers in Jaguars history. He has the ability to elevate the entire receiving corps – which struggled in 2014 despite being playing surprisingly well in some cases – and help Blake Bortles become the dominant quarterback the team so eagerly hopes he will become. While others are still hung up on pass rushers at third overall (and they are certainly worthy of the honor) I am becoming more and more sold that picking a wide receiver like Cooper here is a good decision. He may not be the best player in the draft but he is definitely the best player at his position and could come in and immediately be the best at the position on the team.
