2012 NFL Mock Draft: Who do the Jaguars take?

New, comments

It's the Monday after the 2012 Senior Bowl, so that means we're due for another fresh 2012 NFL Mock Draft from SB Nation. The Jacksonville Jaguars picks in mock drafts have been all over the place, from offensive lineman to cornerbacks to wide receivers. This next pick done by Ryan Van Bibber is a pick I like, but I'm not sure if it's a selection the Jaguars will pull the trigger on. What happens in free agency however will obviously have a big impact on who the Jaguars draft.

Hit the jump to see who the Jaguars pick.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars, Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

Coples was the big winner at the Senior Bowl this week. He salvaged his draft stock after a mediocre senior season, and looks like the best pass rusher in the draft. Jacksonville needs help all over the roster, but pass rushers are at a premium. If they can keep Jeremy Mincey from walking away in free agency, the addition of Coples gives the Jaguars a nice one-two punch along their defensive line.

Van Bibber makes an excellent point about pairing Mincey at RDE and Coples at LDE. This would give the Jaguars a relatively young and versatile defensive line.
