Rhett's Mock Draft 1.0

1(3). Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville: I believe the Texans will take Clowney, and the Rams will take either a Tackle or Watkins. With the Jaguars recent free agency pick ups it gives the Jaguars more flexibility in the draft. They don't feel that they have to fill a need, and they can take the Best Player Available. At pick #3 the Best Player Available is either Khalil Mack or Teddy Bridgewater. The Jaguars resigned Chad Henne to a two year deal and told him he would start. The Jaguars signed Clemons and Babin to play the LEO and signed Watson to play the SAM/LEO role. With the value of a quarterback being higher than a pass rusher, the Jaguars select Bridgewater. Bridgewater can compete for the starting position in his rookie season. He's a great QB with excellent poise, decision making, and accuracy.

2(39). Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt: This is a great value pick that also fills a need. Matthews has all the tools to be an excellent #1 receiver in the NFL, but he relied too much on his speed and athleticism in college. A good receiver coach like Jerry Sullivan can help him use all his tools, like using his body to shield off defenders. Matthews would be a good possession receiver early in his career across from Cecil Shorts for QB Chad Henne or Teddy Bridgewater.

3(70). Weston Richburg C Colorado State: Great value here that fills a huge need. Richburg is an extremely athletic, smart, and durable center who can come in and compete with Mike Brewster for the starting position.

4(101). Daniel McCullers DT Tennessee: The Jaguars now have great depth along their offensive line except for one position, the 1-tech. The only true 1-tech DT on the Jaguars right now is Roy Miller, who wasn't good last season. McCullers is a bit of a project, but he has massive potential. McCullers is 6'7" 351 lbs, with 36 5/8" arms and 11" hands. He's very durable and very strong. He needs DL coach to refine his mechanics and help him use his raw tools, because he could be a great player. With his size, if he can put it all together, the Jaguars might end up having the best D-Line in football in a few seasons.

4(110). Anthony Steen OG Alabama: Steen is a technically sound, tough, and durable guard. While not super athletic, he is athletic enough to play the zone blocking scheme. Steen had surgery for a partially torn labrum in December, but should be ready to go by OTAs.

5(132). Crockett Gilmore TE Colorado State: Gilmore is a good Tight End who can get up and snag the ball out of the air while in tight coverage. He's also a solid blocker, and can make a solid #2 Tight End early in his career.

5(138). Ahmad Dixon SS Baylor: A very aggressive and reckless Safety who has excellent range and hits hard. The knock on Dixon, is he's poor in coverage. He is a good fit for an in-box safety position as he's a safety/linebacker hybrid. He's stout in run defense, and a very good hitter and tackler. He can come in and compete with Prosinski for the backup Bandit Safety role. Also, he'd be a very good special teamer.

5(147). Walt Aikens CB Liberty: Despite playing for a smaller school, Aikens has potential. Aikens is physically gifted, but needs good coaching to put his tools together has he's still quite raw. He's very active in run support and great in zone coverage. He possesses 32 1/4" arms and he has solid upper body strength that allow him to be a good press corner. Aikens is a good scheme fit, who has a high ceiling if he can be developed.

6(163). Cassius Marsh DE UCLA: Extremely high motor player with outstanding effort. He always play through the whistle. Marsh had a disappointing combine, but may be a solid pass rusher in the Jaguars' scheme. Marsh isn't fast or strong, but he's very quick and agile, and is usually the first one off the snap. Marsh can play the LEO position and the blitzing SAM role for the Jaguars similar to Watson.

6(189). Justin Britt OL Missouri: Britt played every position at Missouri, but mostly Left Tackle. In the NFL, he'd be best suited as right tackle or back up swing tackle who can step in and play any position on the line if needed.

7(199). LaDarius Perkins RB Mississippi State: Jaguars use their last pick on a priority free agent. He's a competitive and well rounded change of pace back. He will have the opportunity to compete for a roster spot.
