The 2018 NFL Draft is just hours away. It is actually here. And the rumors surrounding the top of the draft are swirling. Will the Cleveland Browns really pick Baker Mayfield with the first pick in the draft? Can the Denver Broncos or Buffalo Bills afford to trade up and get Sam Darnold or Josh Allen? WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO WILL HERNANDEZ?

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.

Live blog

11:26 PM: What grade are you giving the Jaguars for the Taven Bryan pick?

11:18 PM: Wow, the Jaguars took Taven Bryan. I am stunned.

8:49 PM: Quenton Nelson is going to the Colts with the No. 6 overall pick. When you have a chance to protect a quarterback who can’t throw a regulation football, you’ve gotta do it.


8:37 PM: The Browns just picked cornerback Denzel Ward with the No. 4 overall pick. I will never hate on a team taking the best cornerback in a class in the top five.

8:30 PM: The New York Jets just got Sam Darnold. Folks, Sam Darnold vs. Blake Bortles is happening in the year of our Lord two thousand and eighteen.

8:25 PM: The Giants took the best non-quarterback in the draft in running back Saquon Barkley.

8:17 PM: The Browns did a good thing. In related news: pigs can now fly.

1:11 PM: Jaguars scouts attended every Oklahoma State game. People forget that. Whether or not it was to watch Mason Rudolph is up to you.

10:47 AM: Doug Marrone is low-key very handsome. That is all.

10:32 AM: If Baker Mayfield is the pick at No. 1 overall it will be amazing. Who would have thought at the beginning of last season that one of Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, or Sam Darnold wouldn’t be the top quarterback picked in the draft?
