NFL.com ran a group mock draft that featured a panel of experts, including Mike Mayock, Steve Mariucci, Brian Billick, Marshall Faulk, Rich Eisen, Michael Lombardi, Melissa Stark and Charles Davis, making selections for each time with live explanations. While the Jaguars pick isn't a particularly fresh take, the top six players selected in front of them was and provided an interesting strategy available to Jacksonville.

Trent Richardson, whom most believe to be a consensus selection for either the Browns at fourth or the Buccaneers at fifth, slipped past both teams when they took Justin Blackmon and Morris Claiborne, respectively. Then with Richardson available to them, the Rams went an entirely different route, taking Alabama safety Mark Barron at six.

While Marriucci selected South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram for the Jaguars, the possibility of Richardson being available at seven would present a very interesting trade possibility, especially considering news that the Jets could be interested in trading up for him.
