Around the Net: First Wave of Mock Drafts

Here is a quick look at what different Mock Drafts are predicting the Jaguar's select in the first round now that the Jaguars have been locked into 16th pick.

NFL Fanhouse -

16. Jaguars: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
Clayborn was an absolute beast in 2009, recording 70 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 11 1/2 sacks in his junior year. But after posting a mediocre senior season, Clayborn needs a solid combine to remind teams that he's going to be a good defensive lineman for a long time. The Jaguars tried to address the DE position in 2008 by selecting Derrick Harvey, but that hasn't worked out so well.

SBNation - 

16. Jacksonville Jaguars (8-8): Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State (SO). This team hovers on the edge of playoff contention yet again, but can't get there because of their lack of offensive firepower. Adding a sophomore with 111 catches and 20 touchdowns in one season seems like an OK idea. - 

Jacksonville Jaguars: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Florida  
The Jaguars need an upgrade across from Rashean Mathis. Derek Cox played well at Indianapolis, but has been way too inconsistent this year. 

In a division with Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub, you can never have too many talented corners. -

16. Jacksonville Jaguars (8-8)

Top Needs: DE, S, ILB, TE

Selection: DE Adrian Clayborn, Iowa Hawkeyes, 6'4'', 285 lbs

Reason: Jacksonville's defense has not been very effective against the run, and their pass defense was one of the worst in the entire NFL. Clayborn would be a great fit because he has an everlasting motor and is constantly hindering the opposing offensive line.

Bowl Game: Insight Bowl vs. Missouri (win 27-24); one - 

16. Jacksonville Jaguars- DE Ryan Kerrigan (Purdue)

The Jaguars ranked dead last in YPA allowed. Their pass defense needs to be their #1 priority this offseason. The top 3 cornerbacks are all off the board, so that doesn’t mean they can’t upgrade their pass defense. Their pass rush, with only 26 sacks, was a huge part of the problem. Top pass rusher Aaron Kampman has torn his ACL in each of the last two seasons so his career is in serious doubt. - 

#16 Janoris Jenkins Ht/Wt: 5-11/188 lbs
Position: CB
School: Florida
Class: Junior - 

16. Jacksonville Jaguars - OLB Travis Lewis – Oklahoma

The Jaguars have been a surprise team this year.  Depending on who is available they could go with a QB but in my 2011 NFL mock draft I think they will turn to the defensive side of the ball.  Travis Lewis is a great athlete who can track down any running back as well as pass the rusher.

17. Jaguars: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Florida – A solid talent and this team could use another corner.
