NFL mock draft 2015: Jaguars still picking Leonard Williams

New, comments

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft is still predicting the Jaguars select USC's Leonard Williams with the No. 3 overall pick, but they're also mocking a trade between the Titans and Browns.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are still drafting USC's Leonard Williams with the No. 3 overall pick, according to SB Nation's Mocking The Draft.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Williams, DT, Southern California

What the Jaguars do at No. 3 will be similar to how the Buccaneers evaluate quarterbacks at No. 1. The Jaguars could have their choice of defensive linemen in Williams and Nebraska's Randy Gregory. Both fit a big need and offer a big impact. Williams rates out as the better player and gets the nod for now.

Nothing new there, as that's what Mocking The Draft said last week. But what's different is that their AFC South rivals in the Tennessee Titans will not be selecting their franchise quarterback with the No. 2 pick right before them.

Their trade partner? The Cleveland Browns, who hold two first round draft picks and have been involved in top-six picks in three of the past four years.

That will leave the Tennessee Titans trading down to the No. 12 and No. 19 overall picks and selecting a top pass rusher and offensive tackle.

12. Tennessee Titans: Vic Beasley, OLB/DE, Clemson

The first of Tennessee's two first-round picks lands them a top pass rusher who can line up at outside linebacker. Beasley may be light, but his first step is incredible. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton would work wonders with a player like Beasley.

19. Tennessee Titans: T.J. Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh

The Titans could continue to add pieces along the offensive line targeting a right tackle like Clemmings. Yes, getting a quarterback in the first round is more fun. But we're going with the assumption the Titans want to roll with Mettenberger.

Mocking The Draft's thinking is that the Titans aren't sure Zach Mettenberger can't be the guy and will roll with him for at least one season.
