Jaguars 7-round mock draft: 5th round, No. 157 pick: Andrew Stueber, OT.
The Jaguars sent their 2022 fifth-round pick to the Carolina Panthers as part of the C.J. Henderson trade last season. However, they acquired an extra one from the Minnesota Vikings when they traded edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue back in 2020. With that selection, Jacksonville takes Andrew Stueber, who started at right tackle for the Wolverines last season but may need to switch to guard in the pros.
Stueber plays better when he operates in a tight space and has the “stature, length, mental process, and craftiness” to move be a solid backup and maybe turn into a starter down the road. At this point of the draft, you need to target development prospects and selecting the Michigan product could end up paying off in the long run.
Jaguars 7-round mock draft: 5th round, No. 165: Troy Andersen, LB.
Again, the Jaguars will enter the draft with too many draft picks, which would be a good problem to have if most of them were in the first round but half of them are either sixth or seventh-rounders. Thus, it makes sense to use a few of them as part of a trade package. In this case, they send a sixth-round pick (No. 197) and a seventh-rounder (No. 235, via the Baltimore Ravens) to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for the 165th selection. With that pick, they take Montana State linebacker Troy Andersen.
The former Bobcat logged 47 total tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, two sacks, and two interceptions in 15 games last season. While he struggles to shed blocks, his speed makes him an interesting developmental prospect that could become a key cog on special teams.
