NFL Mock Draft 2014: 2 rounds for the Jaguars

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Mocking the Draft has a new two-round NFL Mock Draft where the Jacksonville Jaguars get some interesting picks.

NFL Draft season is in full swing, which means we're going to get Mock Drafts out the wazoo from now until May. With the 2014 Senior Bowl coming to conclusion, mock drafts are certainly going to change with the ebb and flow of "draft stock" with the all-star circuit.

Matthew Fairburn of Mocking the Draft has a new two-round NFL Mock Draft with some very interesting picks for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars - Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville

The Texans might regret passing on Bridgewater. They will really regret it if he ends up becoming a Jacksonville Jaguar. Bridgewater has been getting knocked for his frame. He's a bit short and could stand to add a few pounds. His size doesn't make him any less of a quarterback prospect, though. Instead of fretting over 10 pounds or a few inches on his frame, teams should pay close attention to Bridgewater's ability to sense and deal with pressure in the pocket and his consistent display of accuracy on all levels of the defense. He still needs to refine his vertical passing game, but Bridgewater has the arm strength and anticipation to be a big-time passer. The Jaguars are obviously in dire need of a quarterback, and they get a gift here as the best prospect at the position falls to them at No. 3.

39. Jacksonville Jaguars - Louis Nix III, Defensive Tackle, Notre Dame

One of the biggest needs for the Jaguars is a plug in the middle of the defensive line. Roy Miller was a failed experiment in 2013. Injuries caused Louis Nix to struggle this season for Notre Dame, and as a result he falls to the Jaguars in the second round and gets to play in his hometown.

Honestly, if you could promise me this is how the draft will shake out in May I would say thank you and start looking towards free agency. We've talked about Bridgewater quite a bit, but the snagging of Louis Nix in the second round I think is a savvy and under-the-radar type pick from Fairburn. While a pass rusher at 39 would be ideal, getting an interior presence like Nix would also help a ton.

Roy Miller was mediocre most of the 2013 season, albeit playing injured, but someone like Nix in the rotation or even starting at the one-technique could do some nice things for the Jaguars defensive line, freeing players  up around him.
