2012 NFL Mock Draft: Who do the Jaguars take?

It's been a while since I've posted the SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, but that's because it's been the same draft pick over and over. Frankly, we've discussed Quinton Coples to death, so there was no real point in discussing it further. This selection for the Jaguars however is an excellent one and an ideal scenario. It's looking more and more like it's a real possibility in the draft too, the way things are shaking out.

Hit the jump to see who the Jaguars take.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars, Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Claiborne takes a precipitous fall in the first mock draft following free agency. Jacksonville is just fine with that. The Jaguars wisely re-signed Rashean Mathis, but he is 32 and recovering from a torn ACL. Claiborne is a brilliant cover corner with fine ball skills that should have an impact even as a rookie.

Outside of being able to move down in the draft, this is the ideal scenario for the Jaguars even with the Aaron Ross signing.
