Jalen Ramsey's confidence even more impressive than his skill set -
Jalen Ramsey's considerable physical gifts are matched only by his confidence. In fact, his confidence may even surpass his skills. The former Florida State defensive back, who is likely going to be a top-five draft pick next month, is not shy about saying he should be the No. 1 overall pick. Or discussing how good he is. Or mentioning how competitive he is.

PFF releases mock draft: Jacksonville Jaguars pick... Sheldon Rankins? -
The Jacksonville Jaguars need help on defense. They need some help with their pass rush, most notably around the edge, but we'll take it where we can get it. We need to grab a linebacker too. And another defensive back wouldn't be a bad idea. What they don't need is another interior defensive lineman, no matter how gifted. That's why Pro Football Focus and their latest mock draft where the Jaguars select Sheldon Rankins with the No. 5 overall pick makes zero sense. Zero. None.

Why the Jaguars should trade up in the draft -
There seems to be a sentiment among Jaguars fans that trading up in the draft is a bad thing. It's understandable. A draft pick is like a lottery ticket and the more tickets you have, the better the chance of you winning. Last time the Jaguars traded up in the first round it was to acquire wide receiver Justin Blackmon. Say no more.
