ESPN Mel Kiper mock draft: Jacksonville Jaguars pick Jalen Ramsey

Another mock draft, another prediction that the Jaguars will get Jalen Ramsey.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars need to pick a defender in the 2016 NFL Draft. It'd be great if that were the best available player at that point. Maybe someone who can play multiple positions and help our pass rush. And upgrading our secondary would be great.

In short, can the Jaguars pick Jalen Ramsey?

ESPN's Mel Kiper has released his third mock draft and just like his first and second rounds of predictions, the Jaguars are picking Jalen Ramsey with the No. 5 overall pick.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars

If there's a debate among evaluators on Ramsey, it's whether he'll end up at cornerback or safety. I think a little patience with him at cornerback will go a long way. He has star potential. Jacksonville should be thrilled if he's available here.

Free-agency effect: The Jags have the money to get multiple players in free agency, and should target the secondary. But when it comes to the draft, I think they should be taking the best player available, period.
