Speaking of a good value in the middle rounds, the Jaguars find another Big Ten man in the trenches. Ohio State's Michael Hall Jr. was a standout at this year's Reese's Senior Bowl and even put up some impressive reps against the draft's best center in Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson.

Hall is an explosive, tightly-wound interior lineman. He stands 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds, so he's a bit undersized. However, Hall's tenacity and hand usage can help him out against those bigger and stronger linemen. If anything, Hall is going to be a huge help in stopping the run as a rotational guy.

Even if Jacksonville retains Josh Allen, they still need to add some depth off the edge, and start doing so here with Kansas State's Khalid Duke. Although he has a thinner frame, Duke still projects well as a situational pass rusher at the very least.

Last year with the Wildcats, Duke finished with 8.0 tackles for loss including 6.0 sacks. He relies on his speed and agility more than technique, which is where he'll have to improve going into the NFL. His athletic profile and quickness, though, will help him.
