2014 NFL Mock Draft: Jaguars go quarterback

With sole possession of the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Mocking The Draft has the Jaguars going after the top quarterback, unsurprisingly.

After the Week 11 games have been played, the Jacksonville Jaguars now sit firmly with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and control their destiny, so to speak. Without having to worry about tie breakers and coin flips, it's easy now to run an all too early NFL Mock Draft so we can all laugh six months from now how inaccurate it is.

In the latest rendition, Matthew Fairburn of Mocking The Draft naturally has the Jaguars picking the top quarterback in the 2014 class, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater.

1. Jacksonville JaguarsTeddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville: It's been a long year in Jacksonville. New general manager David Caldwell stripped the roster down before the season, starting the rebuilding process from scratch. An 0-8 start to the season was part of the growing process for a team in complete rebuilding mode. Even with a win against the Titans in Week 10 and a more competitive effort against the Cardinals in Week 11, the Jaguars are the favorites to land the No. 1 overall pick.

This is an easy pick for the Jaguars to make. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is the most complete prospect at the position eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft. Bridgewater is skilled at moving throughout the pocket and avoiding pressure while keeping his eyes downfield. He also has a quick release and strong enough arm to make all of the throws. He's the quarterback Jacksonville has been waiting for.

Naturally there is a lot of debate who the Jaguars should pick if they end up with the No. 1 pick, but only one thing is certain.

QB fear is real. QB fear is strong.
