Rhett's Mock Offseason 3.0

Free Agency:

Clay Harbor TE JAC; 2 Years 1.5 Mil

Cameron Bradfield OT JAC; 2 Years 1.5 Mil

Will Blackmon CB JAC; 2 Years 2.5 Mil

Austin Pasztor OT JAC; 2 Years 1.5 Mil

Mike Brown WR JAC; 3 Years 2.75 Mil

Chad Henne QB JAC; 2 Years 4 Mil

Jordan Todman RB JAC; 2 Years 1.5 Mil


Jonathan Dwyer RB PIT; 2 Years 2 Mil - Solid runner, and good blocker. Dwyer can come in and compete for a starting position. Starts out with a 2 year prove it deal.

Kris Durham WR DET(RFA); 2 Years 3 Mil - While he is an RFA, the Lions may not match the offer sheet while they look for a real #2 wideout to pair with Megatron. Durham is 6'6" 216 lbs and will only be 26 entering his 4th season this year. Originally drafted by SEA, Durham had his best season with the Lions this season while filling in for Nate Burleson. Durham had 38 receptions, 490 yards, and 2 touchdowns this past season. Durham is a big red-zone threat and outside receiver who is loaded with potential. The Jaguars offer him a contract that is more then his current value, hoping that Detroit fails to match it. With Jerry Sullivan, Durham can become a dangerous receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the future.

Jon Asamoah OG KC; 4 Years 18 Mil - Asamoah is a very good guard, only allowing 1 sack and 13 hurries through 682 snaps this past season. He only had 3 penalties this season as well. He's quite disciplined, and a great pass blocker, but only solid as a run blocker. Regardless, Asamoah is only 26, and will finally solidify the line by stitching the bleeding wound we call the LG position.

O'Brien Schofield DE SEA; 1 Year 900k - Schofield is a situational pass rusher, only playing 149 snaps this season. Out of 89 pass rushing snaps, Schofield hurried the QB 7 times, hitting him 4 times, and sacking him once. While these aren't very good numbers, they are adequate especially for his first season with his hand on the ground. Schofield needs to add some strength, but looks like he can be a solid situational pass rusher for the Jaguars.


TRADE: Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade #7, #38 for Jacksonville Jaguars #3 and take Jadeveon Clowney, DE South Carolina.

1(7). Khalil Mack LEO/SLB Buffalo - The Jaguars don't think Bortles or Manziel meet the value of the #3 pick and Clowney is on the board. Tampa Bay calls offering their 2nd round pick so they can slide up and take the prototype defensive end. With Clowney not really being a scheme fit, as he is more of a traditional 4-3 end the Jaguars take the trade and slide back. At #7 the Jaguars take "the best scheme-fit pass rusher"(Alfie) to play the LEO. As Alfie pointed out, he can also play the Strongside linebacker role which i great. The Jaguars can put him at the LEO spot with a 4 man rush, and then use a blitz the following play. They can slide Branch into the LEO spot and slide Mack to the SLB spot and blitz. Mack gives the Jaguars more versatility and creativity for their defense that Babich and Bradley would love. is comparing him to Von Miller.

2(38). Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois - Garoppolo has good arm strength, with a super fast release, excellent vision, and he looks off defenders with his eyes. Although he's not a big name QB like Louisville's Bridgwater or the Aggies' Johnny Manziel, Garoppolo has a lot of tools to be a succesful QB in the NFL. He has a great passion for football, and is a strong leader. He's also good at evading the rush and still delivering the pass. His decisions making skills need to be tweaked as does his footwork. CBSSports compares him to Tony Romo due to similar traits in their game and attending the same college. Hopefully it's Romo without the choke factor.

2(39). Christian Jones LB FSU - Jones has great size at 6'4" 240 lbs with incredible athletiscm and speed that gives him the range to cover the entire field. Jones is a good tackler, but isn't the best at shedding blocks. Does a good job in run support and his athleticism gives him the ability of covering tight ends and running backs with ease. Jones routinely blankets the reciever he is covering, and has even shut out slot receivers. While Jones has had college experience with his hand on the ground, he routinely struggles getting off blocks, and is usually engulfed by tackles. He's a much better pass rusher from the LB position, as he can shoot gaps unblockers and hurry the QB. After Daryl Smith left via free agency, Russell Allen became the SLB and has good a very solid job, while Geno Hayes signed to be the WLB. While Hayes has done very well in coverage, he is below average when pass rushing, and terrible against the run. Jones can improve the run defense and push rushing from the WLB position.

3(70). DaQuan Jones DT Penn State - Jones has a very high motor and is very athletic for his 6'3" 320lb size. Jones has the versatility to play the 1-tech, 3-tech, and 5-tech DL positions in our defense. With Roy Miller struggling in both pass rush and run defense, the Jaguars need a better 1-tech to pair with Sen'Derrick Marks. Jones demands double teams(he prefers them too), but still has a good anchor and holds the point of attack. He's a good pass rusher, and a good blocker. Jones needs more active hands, and needs to be a better tackler. Too often he attempts to arm tackle a player, and misses the tackle. Jones offers versatility to the Jags line.

4(101). Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers - At 6'5" 220 lbs, Coleman has the size to be a big-play receiver. Coleman has a knack for making big time plays in traffic, but too often lacks concentration and drops easy passes. It also seems that he lack top-end speed and his 40 yard dash time will help determine his draft stock. If Jerry Sullivan can succesfully develop Coleman, Coleman can have a career similar to Malcom Floyd if not better. Consistently making big plays across from Cecil Shorts.

4(110). Bryan Stork C Florida State - Stork is a good all-around blocker who is athletic enough to play in the ZB scheme,

5(132). Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska - At 6'2" 220 lbs, Baptiste has similar size, ball skills, and fluidity to the play of Gus Bradley's former player, Brandon Browner. Baptiste has the great inital jam that this scheme requires, and he is comfortable playing both man and zone coverage. While Baptiste is capable of delivering a big hit, he needs to be a more aggressive tackler. With Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Dwayne Gratz, Will Blackmon, Alan Ball, and Mike Harris there will be one hell of a battle in training camp for the starting CB gigs.

5(138). James Gayle LEO Virginia Tech - Gayle is strongly built with natural burst and quickness combined with raw power. Gayle needs to improve his pass rushing repetoire, but can be a good situational pass rusher and will compete for playing time with Branch, Davis, and Schofield.

5(147). James White RB Wisconsin - Great running between the tackles, White has great vision, burst, and power. White is a competetive blocker, and a solid receivers who can make defenders miss tackles in space. White will come in and compete for playing time.

6(163). Storm Johnson RB UCF

Jaguars release Jason Babin.
