Jaguars final mock draft: 6th round, No. 197 pick – Jack Coan, QB.

Here’s another pick the Jaguars acquired after trading a player last year. This time though, they traded quarterback Gardner Minshew (remember him?) to the Philadelphia Eagles. Here, Jacksonville takes Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan.

Trevor Lawrence is entrenched as the unquestionable starter and C.J. Beathard is a dependable backup but he’s set to become a free agent in 2022 and Jacksonville needs to develop a quarterback in case he walks away. Coan completed 65.5 percent of his passes for 3,150 yards with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The former Fighting Irish has the prototypical size to play the position in the NFL and is quite mobile, running the 40-yard dash in 4.9 seconds. He needs to work on putting the right amount of touch in his passes and his ball placement isn’t always the best. If he can improve in both of these areas, he could develop into a solid backup.

Jaguars final mock draft: 6th round, No. 198 pick – Kyle Philips, WR.

With their last pick in the sixth round, the Jaguars select UCLA wide receiver Kyle Philips. In case you were wondering how the Jags got his pick, they obtained it when they traded linebacker Joe Schobert to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2021.

Last season, Philips hauled in 59 receptions for 739 yards for 10 touchdowns. He also returned kicks and scored a touchdown. The former Bruin is a solid route-runner that needs to rely less on his body and use his hands when catching the ball. Philips doesn’t have much experience lining up outside and projects as a slot receiver.
