As we get set for the second and third-rounds of the 2012 NFL Draft, we can begin to look at where some people think the teams are going to go. Quite a few experts have released second round NFL Mock Drafts, including Don Banks of Sports Illustrated.

Jaguars - 38 - DE, Vinny Curry, Marshall, Sr., 6-4, 263 pounds

The Jaguars got aggressive and moved up to No. 5 in the first round to get the receiver they needed in Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon. Now it's time to address the woeful pass rush with Curry, who should walk into the starting lineup opposite defensive end Jeremy Mincey.

This pick would make a ton of sense for the Jaguars if Curry is still available. There are a few teams that pick before the Jaguars who could be interested in him, including some teams that run the 3-4 defense. I also wouldn't rule out the Jaguars looking at offensive line or defensive back.
