Jaguars final mock draft: 6th round, No. 180 pick – Max Mitchell, OT.

This is the point of the draft where teams are looking for developmental prospects, special-teams contributors, and potential hidden gems. The Jaguars haven’t had a good track record of identifying talent in the later rounds and that has to change. With their first sixth-round pick, they take Lousiana offensive tackle Max Mitchell.

The former Ragin’ Cajun made 15 starts at right tackle last season and played both tackle spots in college. Moreover, he earned First-Team All-Sun Belt honors and was a Third-Team All-American selection in 2021. He needs to add strength in the pros but has the length and speed to become a solid backup.

With Jawaan Taylor slated to start and Walker Little possibly competing for the right tackle job, Mitchell could sit and learn during his rookie campaign while he works on his craft.

Jaguars final mock draft: 6th round, No. 188 pick – Josh Jobe, CB.

The Jaguars got this pick when they traded cornerback Sidney Jones to the Seattle Seahawks before the start of the 2021 season. Coincidentally, they add depth to their cornerback room here. Alabama cornerback Josh Jobe. The Florida native uses his 6-foot-1 frame to press receivers and in the running game.

Last season, Jobe played 12 games and logged 38 total tackles, two interceptions, and four passes defensed. He lacks top speed and needs to work on his coverage skills but would be a solid addition to a cornerback group that has a trio of solid starters but could use some depth.
