The 2015 NFL Draft looks to be a deep one and for a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars who have a lot of roster holes, it could prove to be one of the most important in this season of the franchise.

And according to Dan Kadar of Mocking The Draft, the team will immediately upgrade two of their most lacking positions -- pass rusher and running back -- in the first two rounds.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler, DE, Florida

We may find out a bit more about the choice this week. Jacksonville is hosting Fowler for a visit on Tuesday, and who knows what information might leak. Fowler has said he’ll be stunned if he’s not the choice by the Jaguars, and he has reason. Fowler is a nice fit as Jacksonville’s Leo because of his versatility as a pass rusher. It’s hard to find many big flaws in Fowler’s game.

36. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jay Ajayi, RB, Boise State

The Jaguars need to add talent at running back and Ajayi is the top one available. He’s a good all-around back, though the comparisons to Marshawn Lynch are off the mark. He’s more of a Matt Forte.

While Fowler isn't my first choice at pass rusher, I like addressing the LEO and running back with the top two picks. And with pass rusher a deep enough class, I don't think trading down to the 11-15 spot, gaining an extra pick, and still grabbing someone like Vic Beasley or Randy Gregory is out of the question.
