The 2017 NFL Draft is here. It is actually here. And the rumors about what the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to do in the first round are swirling. Will they go with the chalk pick in Leonard Fournette? Will they shock the world with Deshaun Watson? Will they try and trade down a few spots and grab an extra Day 2 pick?
We’ll be updating this live blog all day (and running live blogs every day of the draft) and packing in every rumor, piece of news, and mention of the Jaguars.

8:24 PM: When you spend four draft picks on Mitch Trubisky >>>>>
The Bears are heavily invested in the quarterback position. Paid Mike Glennon and now traded all that for Mitch Trubisky. Wild.— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) April 28, 2017
8:19 PM: WHAT IN THE WORLD?
John Lynch is doing work. 49ers get 67, 111 and 3rd round pick in 2018 to move down one spot— Kevin Jones (@Mr_KevinJones) April 28, 2017

7:40 PM: Someone is trading up for Solomon Thomas or Leonard Fournette. I KNOW IT.
Here we go: Bears are considering trading back from No. 3, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 27, 2017
4:08 PM: Do the right thing, Jaguars.
Ryan o just said he thinks they take Watson— Austin (@aus10jag) April 27, 2017
3:35 PM: Oh.
FACTS‼️‼️ https://t.co/9ZH7fVrf1D— Jalen Ramsey (@jalenramsey) April 27, 2017
2:19 PM: Why would you do this? Why is this in the best interest of anybody?
MMQB's @AlbertBreer tells me #Jaguars may take DeShaun Watson & sit him behind Blake Bortles for a year. https://t.co/wM67swNNBi— Damon Amendolara (@DAonCBS) April 27, 2017
1:33 PM: If you want a quarterback, don’t play around. Get him.
@AlfieBCC I've found 2 times in last 22 years a team has traded down and taken QB (Kerry Collins, EJ Manuel) - when they want a qb they get their guy— Jason Matheny (@jasonmatheny) April 27, 2017
1:26 PM: The Tennessee Titans are gonna have Christian McCaffery and Marcus Mariota 2:109in their backfield, aren’t they?
I believe the Titans already have a trade (back) in place and ready to go for this evening. I expect it to happen.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 27, 2017
1:15 PM: My heart wants Deshaun Watson. My head says go with Solomon Thomas.
Interview w/ Solomon Thomas this week in Philly. I think Jags love this guy and now could slip to Jags pending qb at 1. #ASJax #Jaguars pic.twitter.com/MxZ88UgpF6— Brent Martineau (@BrentASJax) April 27, 2017
11:35 AM: Definitely would not hate it. Set up the offense well for whoever the quarterback is in 2018.
Brian Baldinger mocks OJ Howard to #Jaguars on NFLN— Matt Hoffman (@MattHoffmanNFL) April 27, 2017
9:49 AM: Tom Coughlin seems like the kind of guy who would say, “I can like a player and not draft him.”
"From what I understand Tom Coughlin likes Deshaun Watson." - @AlbertBreer to @DAonCBS #Jaguars— CBS Sports Radio (@CBSSportsRadio) April 27, 2017
9:14 AM: Not only this the least exciting player they could draft who isn’t an offensive lineman, I still don’t think Leonard Fournette is a good fit for the Jaguars. And neither does Maurice Jones-Drew.
Todd McShay on ESPN says "it is close to a lock" that the Jags take Fournette if he's there at 4— Ryan Green (@RyanGreenGN) April 27, 2017
8:35 AM: If Deshaun Watson is the guy at No. 4 overall, it’s an obvious sign that Tom Coughlin is in charge. It’s a hell of a power play (and it’s the right pick).
And there is growing chatter about Deshaun Watson to #Jaguars at No. 4. #QBHysteria— Jason Cole (@JasonColeBR) April 27, 2017
I heard Coughlin loves him https://t.co/PltI2OpEQl— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) April 27, 2017
7:00 AM: If Alvin Kamara can fall to the top of the third round, I think that would be huge. I doubt the Jaguars wait that long to get a running back though.
We don't know the blocking scheme for sure, but I would think it'll be zone blocking scheme. In that case, McC/Cook. Favorite: Kamara https://t.co/XiVs3vVD0X— Mike Kaye (@mike_e_kaye) April 27, 2017
