1(3) - LEO - KHALIL MACK – BUFFALO – 6’3
Mack is the best fit in Coach Bradley’s defense. He is a hard worker, relentless, and a dynamic player. Many fellow Jaguar fans are probably thinking we need to draft a QB or Clowney with the first pick. The reason for not picking a QB is the Jaguars first need to set up our offensive line to give whoever we draft at QB a chance to be successful. As for Clowney, I just do not trust him. I do not see that killer instinct in Clowney consistently. Further, Mack tested better in almost every drill with the exception of the 40 dash. Clowney’s & Mack’s best 10 yard split in the 40 was at 1.56 seconds, which is really the only important factor when dealing with the defensive linemen. There are far fewer red flags in drafting Mack.
2(39) - LG - GABE JACKSON - MISSISSIPPI STATE
A mammoth of a man but nimble on his feet with the power to steam role defensive line man. He reminds me of 3rd pick Larry Warford who was one of the best guards in the NFL last season as a rookie. The Jaguars need a LG very bad as Will Rackley has been a disappointment. Jackson can be a plug & play in the Jaguars offensive line.
3(70) - RB – TRE MASON – AUBURN
Powerful runner that is a one cut guy that attacks the hole. Showed that he can manage a full work load and more when at Auburn.
4(101) - WR - DONTE MONCRIEF – MISSISSIPPI
Athletic, big bodied Wide Receiver will be needed as Blackman’s future with the Jaguars is uncertain.
4(110) - C – MARCUS MARTIN – USC
A tough player with coachable flaws. Looks the part of a future Pro Bowl player in the NFL. Martin will be a perfect replacement for long time Jaguar Brad Meester.
5(132) - QB - AARON MURRAY – GEORGIA
Murray does not have all the measurables that scouts want in a QB. What you get with Murray is the traits that cannot be measured. He is a true leader with a great football mind to at-least develop into a back-up QB role with the jaguars if not be the future QB surprise.
5(138) - 5-tec/3-tec - CARAUN REID – PRINCETON
A bit raw but will not need to start right away. I see Reid as a rotation player at the 5-tec & 3-tec.
5(147) - NT - DANIEL MCCULLERS – TENNESSEE
Mccullers would demand a double team freeing up the rest of the line to get to the QB. He also offers a massive body to contribute to stopping the run.
6(163) - CB – WALT AIKENS – LIBERTY
Aikens is exactly what Coach Bradley looks for in a CB.
7(199) - C/LG/RG - RUSSELL BODINE - NORTH CAROLINA
Can play along the interior of the offensive-line.
