SB Nation 2014 NFL Draft

The Jaguars took the quarterback that they hope to be the future of the franchise on Thursday, but there are still plenty of holes in the still-under-construction roster that need to be filled before the team is truly considered a contender. Barring a trade, the Jaguars will have their next chance to add talent when they go on the clock with the No. 39 selection on Friday.

With a list of needs still to be met, including interior offensive line, wide receiver and pass rusher, the Jaguars will have plenty of available options. With 32 players off the board, the top 10 players still available, according to SB Nation's draft experts, Dan Kadar and Matthew Fairburn, are as follows:

# Name Height Weight Pos School
12 Louis Nix 6'2 3/8 326 lbs DT Notre Dame
14 Xavier Su'a-Filo 6'4 1/8 307 lbs G UCLA
17 Kony Ealy 6'4 273 lbs DE Missouri
20 Ra'Shede Hageman 6'5 7/8 310 lbs DT Minnesota
29 Marqise Lee 5'11 3/4 192 lbs WR USC
33 Derek Carr 6'2 3/8 214 lbs QB Fresno State
34 Stephon Tuitt 6'5 304 lbs DL Notre Dame
35 Cyrus Kouandjio 6'6 3/4 322 lbs OT Alabama
36 Jace Amaro 6'5 3/8 265 lbs TE Texas Tech
37 Demarcus Lawrence 6'2 7/8 251 lbs DE Boise State

Kadar and Fairburn's full board of available prospects is available here, but some other players worth keeping an eye on include USC's Marcus Martin, Colorado State's Weston Richburg and BYU's Kyle Van Noy.

Martin and Richburg could each fill the void left by the departure of Brad Meester, while Van Noy could provide the Jaguars with a jack of all trades linebacker who is able to get after the quarterback. The Jaguars have shown interest in all three prospects and could select one with the 39th pick.
