Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: How much money will 2017 draft picks make?

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

How much money will Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2017 draft picks make? -
With his projected signing bonus estimated to be more than $17.8 million, Jaguars first-round pick Leonard Fournette apparently did some gift shopping last week. Fournette surprised his mother, Lory, by buying her a Mercedes SUV and shared the video on social media. As the fourth-overall pick in the April 27-29 NFL Draft, Leonard can expect to earn a hefty payday from the Jaguars.

53-man roster prediction: Post-draft edition -
The 2017 NFL Draft is over and after a lot of activity in free agency, the predicted Jacksonville Jaguars’ 53-man roster could (and should) look quite differently than it did at this point last year. Are there any UDFAs who could squeeze onto the roster? (I think so.) Any draft picks who might not make it? (Probably.) Will there be any players not currently on this roster who make the team? (Yup.)

Should the Jaguars move Brandon Linder back to guard? -
With the NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, plenty of new questions have popped up regarding the Jaguars' roster. This week's Jaguars Mailbag features questions about the offense, undrafted free agents and potential bubble players.

Will Leonard Fournette make a difference for Blake Bortles? -
On the clock with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, many people suggested that the Jacksonville Jaguars had an obvious choice before them. Sure enough, they went the route of taking that obvious choice. The Jags selected running back Leonard Fournette out of LSU, giving their offense the viable bell cow back it’s long been lacking. Though he’s been under intense scrutiny, the film, size and most of the testing for Fournette speaks for itself.

Where the Jacksonville Jaguars stand on offense -
The 2017 offseason isn’t over, but much of the heavy lifting is done. That’s true for the Jaguars’ front office, anyway, with the first and second (and even third) waves of free agency very much in the rear view and the 2017 NFL Draft now completed, too. The Jaguars aren’t necessarily done acquiring players. Still, with those parts of the offseason complete, the roster now looks much as it will Week 1. So, what happens now? Who will start where?
