5 mid-round draft fits for the Jacksonville Jaguars -
The Jacksonville Jaguars are still a year or two away from competing, which means they need to crush this draft by hitting on mid-round picks. There shouldn’t be a position on the roster that Jacksonville is content with heading into the draft. So they should adhere best player available philosophy throughout the entire draft. Let’s look at five mid-round players who the Jaguars should target in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Jacksonville Jaguars scouts “really like” Solomon Thomas if he’s there at No. 4 -
We are a couple of weeks away from the 2017 NFL Draft and one name reportedly getting more and more buzz at the top of the draft is Stanford pass rusher Solomon Thomas — and Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller hears the Jacksonville Jaguars are a very interested suitor if he falls to them. In his latest scouting report, Miller believes the San Francisco 49ers could get him at No. 2 overall, but also says not to count out the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye set to grow in 2017 -
Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was every bit as good as advertised following his selection in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. A stud rookie who made the NFL Network’s under-25 team, Ramsey proved he could hang with the best wide receivers in the NFL and also make some plays while doing so. Meanwhile, A.J. Bouye emerged as a dominant cornerback with the division rival Houston Texans in 2016. Bouye’s fourth season in the NFL saw him rise to the rank of starter and locking down opposing receivers as the best cornerback on a dominant Texans defense. He made Pro Football Focus’ list as the seventh-best cornerback during the 2016 season.
