2019 NFL mock draft: USA Today gives us a 4-round prediction for the Jaguars

New, comments

We are going to have to trade up to get Dwayne, I’m afraid.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

After winning a meaningless late season game, the Jacksonville Jaguars are out of the top-five in the 2019 NFL Draft. That means that contrary to USA Today’s Luke Easterling’s former 3-round mock, Dwayne Haskins is not available to this team.

So, does Easterling think the Jaguars reach for a guy like Daniel Jones or Will Grier? Or do they grab the best available player and wait until the top of the second round to grab their guy?

Let’s find out!

2019 NFL mock draft

7. Jacksonville Jaguars | Clelin Ferrell | EDGE | Clemson

Easterling doesn’t want this team reaching for a second-tier quarterback in such a premier draft spot — not with a ton of talent at defensive line still available. Ferrell is an explosive pass rusher out of Clemson who finally gives Jacksonville what they need in Calais Campbell’s true replacement at defensive end and a stud edge rusher to pair with Yannick Ngakoue.

For context, Haskins went the pick prior to the New York Giants and if all it would take to grab the Ohio State quarterback is a leap frog from No. 7 to No. 5 overall, I can’t see the Jaguars not doing it.

37. Jacksonville Jaguars | Will Grier | QB | West Virginia

There it is — the quarterback of the future for the Jaguars at the top of the second round. Grier is one of the most prolific passers in the Big 12 and he’s absolutely adored by his teammates. You can read more about him here.

69. Jacksonville Jaguars | Bobby Evans | OT | Oklahoma

He’s a mobile, flexible offensive tackle but not very powerful although he can anchor and reset well enough. Jacksonville is going to need to do something at the tackle position so why not?

93. Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR) | T.J. Hockenson | TE | Iowa

Yes, yes, and more yes. I don’t think this year’s Mackey Award winner as the best tight end in college football falls to the bottom of the third round — and if he’s available in the second round I’d go as high as there to get him — but if he’s still here I would be very, very happy to have him on the Jaguars.
