Two times the mock Draft

I created two mock drafts, one that focuses on fixing the defense and the second on the offense. Both mocks include a trade with Arizona: they get the second overall pick ( used on Joeckel), the Jaguars get seventh overall and the 38th overall picks. The first mock assumes we sign some O-Line free agents this off season to fix the problems at right tackle and guard/center.

First Scenario ( Defense early)

1. ( 7th overall) Dion Jordan, Oregon or Barkevious Mingo, LSU - LEO

Both of these players make great LEO's and I can't decide which one I like more.

2. (33 overall) Sylvester Williams, DT UNC

Williams should be a good anchor in the middle of the defense, greatly improving the run defense, which was atrocious last year.

2.(38 overall) Desmond Trufant, CB Wash

After this pick the Jags have addressed their three biggest needs on defense: getting sacks, stopping the run, having cornerbacks not named Aaron Ross.

3 (64overall) Chase Thomas, OLB Stanford

Even if they resign Daryl Smith we still need another OLB either to start or for depth. At 6'4" 245, Thomas is the perfect tweener size Bradley likes in linebackers.

4 (95 overall) Travis Kelce, TE Cincinnati

This guy may start climbing up draft boards as the draft gets closer. The Jags get great value here with a solid blocker and capable pass catcher to run 2 TE looks.

5. (127 overall) Zac Stacey, RB Vanderbilt

After last year can anyone argue that the Jags need a quality RB back up. I watched a surprising number of Vanderbilt games this year and was impressed by Stacey every time. He was a work horse for that offense and if he is there this late in the draft the Jags should pull the trigger.

6.(159 overall) Vaughn Telemaque, S Miami

Cut Proninski. I only watched limited tape of this player but he appeared to to fill the role of box safety in the Bradley's defense.

7. (192 overall) Take the fastest guy still available to return kicks and punts.

The jaguars return game was terrible last year. The seventh round is the perfect time to take a flier on a speedster that could noticeably help the team.

Second Scenario (Offense Early)

This scenario assumes they fill the major holes on defense through free agency. Signing a CB, DT and LB.

1. (7 overall) Chance Warmack, G Bama

This could be too high to take a guard but it is definitely too high to take a right tackle and those are the two biggest needs on offense.

2. (33 overall) DJ Fluker, RT Bama

We need a right tackle badly. I know taking Alabama linemen 1 and 2 is unlikely but Flucker is the best RT prospect.

2.(38 overall) Zach Ertz, TE Stanford

He may be gone by this point but the jags could definitely use another TE to run two TE looks.

3. (64 overall) Margus Hunt, DE SMU

Add another LEO to the roster.

4. (95 overall) QB

Taking a QB here to compete with BG11 and at worst be the longer term back up. I really don't want to get into a discussion of who the QB should be here so write in your favorite from the group: Nassib, Dysert, Bray, Jones, Manuel, Glennon, Wilson.

5.(127 overall) Rex Burkhead RB, Nebraska

We need depth a RB. Rex could develop into a good player if he can add more leg strength.

6. Earl Wolfe, S NC State

We need safety depth. Cut Proninski.

7. (192 overall) Take the fastest guy still available to return kicks and punts.

The jaguars return game was terrible last year. The seventh round is the perfect time to take a flier on a speedster that could noticeably help the team.

I like the defensive (first scenario) more but wouldn't be upset at either.
