The Jacksonville Jaguars could get a quality guard in the fourth round.

The Jaguars could wait until the third or fourth round to take a guard, here are a few that would make sense.

10. Ben Cleveland, Georgia

Ben Cleveland has the size and the strength to play guard in the NFL and he does a good job of recognizing blitzes and stunts. While he dealt with injuries early in his collegiate career, he managed to stay healthy in his senior season, starting all nine games in 2020.

9. David Moore, Grambling State

David Moore made the most out of his Senior Bowl invitation and was named the top offensive lineman on the American team by the defensive line group. Although he will need time to refine his technique, he could end up becoming a solid starter.

8. Aaron Banks, Notre Dame

Aaron Banks isn’t overly athletic but he has good size and length for the position. He needs to keep an eye on his weight and work on his hand placement but the Notre Dame product could be worth a third-round selection.

7. Trey Smith, Tennessee

Trey Smith showed flashes at Tennessee but has medical red flags heading into the draft, having dealt with blood clots in his lungs during his collegiate career. If he gets a positive medical evaluation, he would be a solid addition in the third round.

6. Royce Newman, Ole Miss

Royce Newman, like other prospects on this list, has lined up at tackle but may be better suited to play guard in the NFL. He lacks elite strength but is a superb run blocker and is adept in pass protection.
