Christmas in May: Jaguars 2014 NFL Mock Draft

3) Sammy Watkins WR - Clemson: Dave Caldwell obviously believes Justin Blackmon will not play anytime soon for Jacksonville in the 2014 season so why not give Chad Henne the best offensive weapon in the draft. His skills sets are similar to JB with strong hands and running with physicality but he possesses more speed. He's an immediate impact player and allows Cecil Shorts to be more comfortable as the secondary option.

*TRADE: #39 & #70 to New England Patriots for #29

29) Teddy Bridgewater QB - Louisville: This only happens if Cleveland pick a QB at 4! Going into the draft this was pretty much everyone's consensus signal caller. But due to a poor pro day and questions about his slender frame it forced his stock to plummet which Jags capitalize on. He would develop for a year physically and mentally which would have him primed to take over in 2015.

105) David Yankey G - Stanford: With the center position being limited with only 3 potential starters in this draft you move over to the other interior lineman position and take the best available guard. He's a strong and smart player like most Stanford players and would be a viable option for the RG starting spot.

114) Devonta Freeman RB - FSU: With Toby Gerhart being named the starter we are in the business of a back up RB and I'm not quite sure Todman can handle the load and Denard Robinson's ball security and unfamiliarity with the position could allow Freeman to man the spot. Small in stature but muscular, quick feet and decent speed and his a reliable pass catcher.

144) Aaron Lynch DE - USF: A freak of an athlete at 6'5 249 he has the speed, size and length for the LEO position but effort and technique has him in the 5th round. He has all the tools a coach loves but needs to focus and be guided in the right direction. Situational pass rusher at worst his first year and potentially a prime contributor in the future.

150) AC Leonard TE - Tennessee State: The former Florida Gator transfer isn't the biggest at his position but he is the fastest after posting a 4.5 at the combine. He fits the H back position which allows him to be flexed out on corners where he can out muscle. Value pick.

159) Jon Halapio G - Florida: Pure road grater with an attitude. Needs to work on pass protection but should be able to be a viable reserve.

179) Ronald Powell OLB - Florida: Another athletic pass rusher who can quickly disrupt a QB. The skill set is there because he's a former # 1 high school player but knee injuries has hurt his stock. Played similar LEO role at UFC known as the BUCK.

205) Avery Williamson ILB - Kentucky: Quick to the ball and shows good awareness in pass coverage. Should help immediately on special teams.

222) L'Damian Washington WR - Missouri: At 6'4 he gives the Jags a tall target with leaping ability. Red zone target and special teamer.
