2019 NFL Draft: Iowa TE Noah Fant declares and will skip bowl game, should Jaguars target him?

NCAA Football: Iowa at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Iowa tight end Noah Fant, the school’s all-time leader in touchdowns, has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. He will forego the team’s bowl game this year and his senior season and look to be drafted presumably in the first round this coming spring.

With the Jacksonville Jaguars likely picking in the top 10 of next year’s draft, it bears asking — should we target the tight end at the top of the draft?

Earlier this week, USA Today’s Luke Easterling released a three-round mock that saw Fant slip to the top of the second round with the Jaguars making the easy choice to grab him there.

But what if he doesn’t last that long? Is he worth a top-10 selection? Is it worth trading up from the second round or back in the first round to get him somewhere closer to the middle or end of the first round?
