NFL Draft 2013: Jaguars down to 'less than a half dozen' choices

Jaguars general manager David Caldwell noted the team has narrowed their possible draft choices.


The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the second overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, but have seemingly narrowed down their choices to "less than a half dozen" according to general manager Dave Caldwell in an interview with 1010XL on Tuesday morning.

Caldwell also made mention that private workouts with players typically mean genuine interest, which means it should be a bit easier to narrow down who the four to five players the Jaguars have legitimate interest in with the second overall pick.

Dion Jordan, LB/DE, Oregon

The Jaguars already worked out Jordan privately but will also host him for a visit on Tuesday. Jordan would seem to be a good scheme fit for the Jaguars and should be a day one starter at the linebacker position.

Sharrif Floyd, DT/DE, Florida

I'm not the biggest fan of Floyd, but he's a good player who would likely fit into what the Jaguars are wanting to do on the defensive side of the ball. He can play the three-technique or the five-technique on run heavy downs and has nice athleticism for his size. Floyd had a private visit with the Jaguars recently.

Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

Feelings on Smith aside, it would seem the Jaguars interest in the Mountaineer quarterback is genuine. The team sent a large group to his Pro Day and held an impromptu private workout, in which head coach Gus Bradley came away saying he was more impressed with him than he originally expected.

Outside of those three, there is a little guess work involved but I think we can narrow it down to either Star Lotulelei, Sheldon Richardson, Ezekiel Ansah, and Barkevious Mingo. They all would seem to fit the same style of what the three players mentioned have.
