The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't need the 2015 NFL Combine to tell them what they already know: USC's Leonard Williams is one of the best defensive linemen available this year.

And according to Dan Kadar of Mocking The Draft, Williams will be the first non-quarterback taken in the 2015 NFL Draft, with the Jaguars sitting tight at No. 3 overall and selecting the versatile lineman.

Kadar believes the Combine assured Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota as the No. 1 and No. 2 selections, respectively. And the Jaguars will stay with Williams as they have in the last few mock drafts from Kadar:

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

If Williams is available for the Jaguars, he should be the choice. There are few questions about his game, and those in the NFL are intrigued by his potential to get even better with added bulk and strength.

As far as the rest of the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans will stay at No. 2 and select Mariota, the Houston Texans will pick up Washington linebacker Shaq Thompson at No. 16 overall, and the Indianapolis Colts will get Oregon defensive end Arik Armstead at No. 29.
