It's the day after Thanksgiving, I'm full of turkey and wisdom and felt like making yet another Jaguars 2014 mock draft. It's extremely early, but I cover a few valuable position that I think will go a long way to improving the Jags next year. This draft is a result of the Jags winning two of the last five games and landing the third overall pick.
Jaguars record: 4-12
Round 1-Pick 3
Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State - Brother of David, this kid is a gamer. He still has room to improve, but has the tools to be a franchise QB. Better than his brother in multiple areas at this stage of his career. Obviously this will be the most controversial pick I have, but if you watch film on him he has improved mechanics this year and will be a riser come draft time; think Ryan Tannehill from a couple years back(not skill-set). We miss out on Bridgewater, but still get our QB.
Round 2-Pick 35
Cyril Richardson, G/T, Baylor - Interior offensive line needs to be upgraded and Richardson will help. Has the versatility to play multiple positions, but he will be slotted at the guard spot and will send Will Rackley packing.
Round 3-Pick 67
Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina - A bit of a homer pick, but Gus Bradley will enjoy him. Quarles is a force on the inside and shows great quickness for a man his size. He is an underclassman who is expected to declare and will be a solid contributor on the line.
Round 4-2 Picks
Adrian Hubbard, OLB, Alabama - Hubbard is a mammoth for OLB standards. Well-coached and will be an upgrade at either the Will or Sam position.
Storm Johnson, RB, UCF - I've had the priveledge of seeing this kid play and he just has that "it" factor certain backs have. Playing for a school like UCF limited his exposure but he will be a solid tailback at the next level. Ideally a 1-2 punch of Storm and MJD would be great.
Round 5-3 Picks
James Stone, C, Tennessee - Brad Meester is in the twilight of his career and its time to move on. Stone will compete with Mike Brewster for the center position moving forward.
Nick O'Leary, TE, Florida State - Grandson of the Golden Bear. Has the mold of a Chris Cooley type player. Will add a bit more versatility to the growing young offense.
Henry Anderson, DE, Stanford - Adding to the Defensive line. Staying with the mold of a well-coached, large. athletic lineman.
Round 6-1 Pick
Ross Cockrell, CB, Duke - Another six-foot tall corner who can work in the system.
Round 7- 1 Pick
Chaz Sutton, DE, South Carolina - It's a crapshoot at this point so I'm making another homer pick. Good tackler and will add size to the DE spot.
