The 2012 NFL Draft will begin to become a focus for the Jacksonville Jaguars and many teams that are out of the NFL playoffs. The Jaguars pick 7th overall this year and could go a bunch of different ways, despite what many seem to think. In last week's mock draft the Jaguars got South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey, which would be a useful pick. This week, the Jaguars get a player from the 2012 BCS National Championship team.

Click the jump to find out who the Jaguars get in the latest SB Nation 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars, Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

The Jaguars really, really need a wide receiver. Alshon Jeffery (mocked here last time), Michael Floyd and Kendall Wright could all be in play here with a good pre-draft season. For now, they go with Kirkpatrick. Rashean Mathis tore his ACL in 2011, and he's 31. William Middleton, who showed some promise in six starts, landed on IR in December. They need help, Kirkpatrick could beef up a secondary with Derek Cox and a healthy Middleton, assuming they keep the RFA, in 2012.
