2016 mock draft: Jaguars pick Myles Jack after free agency

With free agency over, the Jaguars have addressed their secondary enough to move away from Jalen Ramsey and get Myles Jack with the No. 5 overall pick.

The Jacksonville Jaguars did a lot to upgrade their secondary in free agency last week, signing free safety Tashaun Gipson away from the Cleveland Browns and cornerback Prince Amukamara away from the New York Giants. Does that mean the team moves away from Florida State standout safety/cornerback Jalen Ramsey in the first round?

Dan Kadar of MockingTheDraft.com feels that way and has the Jaguars picking the best linebacker in the draft with the No. 5 overall pick.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

Although the Jaguars tried and failed a few times to sign a pass rusher in free agency, it would be hard to take one here and pass on Jack. With Paul Posluszny potentially entering his final season in Jacksonville, Jack's talent is needed. In passing on Buckner, the Jaguars could target someone like Kamalei Correa of Boise State or Oklahoma State's Emmanuel Ogbah in the second round.

I think this is the best pick at No. 5 overall with Gipson and Amukamara fixing the team's need to address the secondary. Even though the Dallas Cowboys picked Ramsey with the No. 4 overall pick, even if Ramsey were on the board it would be hard to turn down a playmaker like Jack.

As for the rest of the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans took offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil with the No. 1 pick, the Indianapolis Colts took linebacker Leonard Floyd with the No. 18 pick, and the Houston Texans took defensive end Kevin Todd out of Clemson.

What do you think of the Jaguars' pick of Myles Jack?
