1st round (Jaguars Trade 7th pick to the Washington Redskins for the 15th overall selection): T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa
Summary: The Jaguars trade the 7th overall pick with the Washington Redskins for their 1st round (15th), 2nd round (46th), and 5th round (153rd)picks.
The Redskins jump up past the Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, and Cincinnati Bengals to select their QB.
The Jaguars still draft a talented player in T.J. Hockenson who sits at the top of their draft board, fills a huge need, and get other picks later in the draft. Nick Foles put it best when discussing with the media last Tuesday,
"“You have to be able to run the ball with the tight end in the game, but they also have to be able to go out and catch the ball. It’s very hard to find guys that are good at both, but a key to a great offense is you really do need a good tight end.”"
2nd round: 38th Overall: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Summary: Greg Little is a talented offensive tackle, he fills a major need on the offensive line and will make an immediate impact for the Jaguars.
So far in this mock draft Jacksonville has done a good job of filling voids but still taking top talent. Little has talent but will need some coaching to unleash his full potential. He could start at right tackle or left tackle and move Cam Robinson to the right side.
46th Overall (via Washington): Paris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
Summary: Paris Campbell has speed, consistency, and is a very good route runner. He could be one of the steals of the draft. The trade with Washington opens up the opportunity for the playmaking receiver.
Early on in the mock draft the Jaguars look to improve their offense with players that have loads of potential.
3rd round: 69th Overall: Deionte Thompson, Safety, Alabama
Summary: Deionte Thompson is joining his former Alabama teammate Ronnie Harrison in the secondary for what the Jaguars hope will once again be one of the most feared passing defenses in the NFL. Thompson will compete for a starting role in the secondary.
4th round: 109th Overall: Oshane Ximines, DE, Old Dominion
Summary: The Jaguars pass rush lacks depth, Oshane Ximines is a player who would provide immediate depth. He is a talented pass rusher who will be able to fill Dante Fowler’s role and allow for more flexibility along the defensive line.
5th round: 153rd Overall (via Washington): Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
Summary: Bryce Love is a big play spark plug running back who will complement a bruising back like Leonard Fournette well.
He also can serve as a very good receiving threat out of the backfield, something TJ Yeldon developed to be a big part of his game.
6th round: 178th Overall: Deion “Shaq” Calhoun, OL, Mississippi State
Summary: Deion Calhoun is a player who will add depth at guard in case of injury and may be groomed into a starting role given time. He has good size, strength, and toughness. He’s a great value pick.
7th round: 236th Overall: Kyle Shurmur, QB, Vanderbilt
Summary: With the last pick in the mock draft the Jaguars decide to pick Kyle Shurmur out of Vanderbilt. He faced tough competition in the SEC in a pro style offense. He would serve as a backup and learn behind Nick Foles.
