Todd McShay's 2013 NFL mock draft has the Jaguars taking a DE

The Jaguars get some pass rush help, but it's probably not who you think.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to wind up with a Top 5 pick in the NFL draft and are on a collision course for the first or second overall pick, unless they put together some wins to close out the season. One of the biggest areas of need the Jaguars will try to address in the draft is the pass rush. There are plenty of guys to choose from in that regard in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Todd McShay has the Jaguars picking a defensive end, but probably not the one you think, Demontre Moore of Texas A&M.

The Jaguars have a league-low 14 sacks this season. They signed the recently-released Jason Babin as a Band-Aid, but even if Babin returns in 2013, upgrading the pass rush will be a huge priority. Moore can win with quickness or power, shows very good closing burst and is the kind of high-motor, high-character prospect the Jags are known to value. He also flashes the ability to hold the point against the run and has the versatility to line up in multiple spots.

Moore certainly fits the Jaguars here, but I'm not sure I like him more than guys like Bjoern Werner or Dion Jordan.

What do you think?
