The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the 4th selection in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday night, and their intentions remain a total mystery.
The 2017 NFL Draft usually takes place in New York City at Radio City Music Hall, but the NFL has decided to mix things up in recent years. This iteration of the draft is being held in Philadelphia, PA and will actually be held outdoors (cue the lightning strikes).
The Cleveland Browns are technically on the clock right now and almost everyone assumes they will be selecting Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, but the draft industrial complex is in full swing and rumors are flying that they also desperately want quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
The drama doesn’t stop there, as almost no one has a good feel on what the teams in the top 5 plan on doing, including the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With that in mind, we should all be on the edge of our seats over the course of the first round.

While there should be plenty of interesting developments in the first round on Thursday night, there will be a number of storylines to follow after the high-profile selections are made in round 1. If the Jaguars don’t select a quarterback in the first round (as some rumors are suggesting), then it’s only a matter of time until they take a signal-caller who can come in and challenge Blake Bortles. It will also be fascinating to see when and how often the Jaguars will invest in offensive lineman.
