Mel Kiper NFL Mock Draft: Jaguars Go Offense and Defense

As we inch closer and closer to the 2011 NFL Draft at the end of the month, we get a clearly picture of where people think the Jacksonville Jaguars will be going in the draft. ESPN Analyst Mel Kiper recently released his 2-round mock draft and has some interesting picks for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville Jaguars - Record: 8-8 - Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri

Another guy I'm sticking with from the previous mock, Smith offers a raw talent package with a lot of upside. He's a player who could easily have been a top-10 pick in 2012 had he stuck around Missouri for another year of development. The Jags went for veterans to spackle over the holes at defensive end last year, but it's time to develop some edge talent to go with what is a really promising defensive interior. Smith is an ideal developmental option who can still help in 2011.

Kiper has the Jaguars taking wide receiver Torrey Smith from Maryland in Round 2. In his mock draft, Jake Locker, Andy Dalton, and Ryan Mallett are all gone.
