The coming week is busy for the Jacksonville Jaguars, as the players report for the offseason conditioning program on Monday. The team will also have its “State of the Franchise” press conference on Thursday, where the team will unveil its new uniforms and helmets.

The NFL is also expected to release the 2018 schedule later this week.

In the meantime, let’s get caught up on everything that took place regarding the Jaguars in the past week.

News and notes:

  • Likewise, GMFB’s Kyle Brandt named Yannick Ngakoue as one of the NFL’s top-three pass rushers, while Reggie Bush listed Calais Campbell in his top-three.
  • Donte Moncrief has apparently switched jersey numbers. He was originally going to wear 15, but according to his Twitter, has convinced Jaelen Strong to let him wear his same number from Indianapolis: 10.

(It’s important to note Moncrief is still listed as No. 15 on the Jaguars official roster.)

Mocks and draft notes:

  • Dane Brugler of NFL Draft Scout released a full-seven round mock. We analyzed each Jaguars pick.
  • Todd McShay released a full three-round mock draft. Who does he have going to Jacksonville? Lamar Jackson in Round 1.
  • Florida cornerback Duke Dawson is a name that continues to be linked to the Jaguars. He would be a good fit.
  • Ryan Day is giving his thoughts on where the “sweet spot” is in the draft for each position. Check it out.
  • Have you been participating in the Big Cat Country community mock draft? The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock, with the Dallas Cowboys coming up later today.
  • SB Nation recently unveiled its Draft Database for 2018. The Jaguars have three players that are most commonly mocked at pick No. 29: Connor Williams (OT, Texas), Lamar Jackson (QB, Louisville) and Christian Kirk (WR, Texas A&M). Each player accounts for 11 percent of qualifying mock drafts.
  • NFL.com’s Adam Rank released a mock draft with what every team “should do.” He slots Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey at No. 29. Am I the only one that disagrees that the Jaguars will take a tackle in the first round?
  • Jaguars legend Maurice Jones-Drew released his first mock draft on NFL.com. He sees Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander going to his former team, as does fellow analyst/former Jaguar Bucky Brooks, in his fourth version.
  • The SB Nation staff put out an article with only original picks — selecting players that they had not mocked to those teams previously. Georgia guard Isaiah Wynn falls to Jacksonville in this scenario. Yes, please.
  • Jared Dubin of CBS Sports took Christian Kirk for the Jaguars in his latest mock draft. Dubin notes that Kirk is a fringe first-round player, but believes the pick makes a lot of sense with Kirk’s potential and the need the Jags have at the position.

As always, keep up with Big Cat Country throughout the week to stay up to date on everything Jaguars.
