The 2019 NFL Draft is just hours away. It is actually here — and the Jacksonville Jaguars are once again picking in the top 10. Will they try and trade down? Will they stay put at pick Jonah Williams? What about T.J. Hockenson? Noah Fant? DWAYNE HASKINS?!?!
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.
9:31 PM: Tom Coughlin and Dave Caldwell confirm that Josh Allen will fill Dante Fowler’s spot as a versatile linebacker who can be a pass rushing specialist. No brainer.
Caldwell confirmed the part about filling Fowler's spot. https://t.co/QT7MBW4lfE— Daniel Popper (@danielrpopper) April 26, 2019
Coughlin says Allen can be a pass rusher, play defensive end in base defense and play outside linebacker. Sounds like they like his versatility. I expect him to move into role Dante Fowler filled before he was traded. #Jaguars— Daniel Popper (@danielrpopper) April 26, 2019
9:13 PM: Jalen Ramsey approves the Josh Allen pick. I stan.
9:12 PM: Oh my God, Josh Allen’s walk up music was Pennywise’s “Bro Hymn” and I am openly weeping.
9:09 PM: What a dream scenario for this front office. God bless you, Jon Gruden.
9:06 PM: JOSH ALLEN IS THE PICK FOR THE JAGUARS AND I AM SCREAMING!
8:32 PM: Nick Bosa to the San Francisco 49ers with the second overall pick. Hell of a defense they’re building to pair with Jimmy Garoppolo.
8:26 PM: And the Arizona Cardinals make Kyler Murray the first overall draft pick this year.
8:17 PM: Hilarious.

8:06 PM: Nashville looks ELECTRIC. Damn.
8:00 PM: IT’S DRAAAAAAAAAAAFT TIIIIIIIIIIIIME!
1:49 PM: Washington is rumored to want to trade up for a quarterback, but they’re currently apparently fighting between what looks like an actual good quarterback and Blake Bortles with an un-fun name.
The Redskins are not only in disagreement about whether to go quarterback with their top pick but which quarterback to select. While we know by now that Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder are fixated on Dwayne Haskins, there is a case being pled for Duke QB Daniel Jones per sources— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) April 25, 2019
1:05 PM: Some teams think Montez Sweat was misdiagnosed at the combine and the heart issue may not actually be a risk or a big deal.
Teams think Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat's heart condition was misdiagnosed at the combine, per @RapSheet. Additional tests indicate no risk. Teams doing last-minute research now.— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) April 25, 2019
12:30 PM: The Houston Texans are open to trading Jadeveon Clowney, which seems really weird!
11:58 AM: Looks like after changing defensive schemes AGAIN the 49ers are looking to see if they can get anything for 2017 first round pick Solomon Thomas.
Just heard 49ers are shopping Solomon Thomas, the third pick in the 2017 draft.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 25, 2019
10:00 AM: The Oakland Raiders allegedly moved Dwayne Haskins up their board today. Multiple quarterbacks going ahead of the Jaguars would be a great thing.
As the #Raiders ponder where to go with their fourth overall pick, worth noting: Oakland brass moved QB Dwayne Haskins up their board late this week, source said. He impressed them in his workout, and could be a consideration at No. 4 .— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 25, 2019
8:51 AM: Don’t be surprised if/when the Jaguars trade down when a guy like Ed Oliver or Josh Allen falls. This is a deep class at positions of need for the Jaguars and picking up an extra first or second round pick would be hugely beneficial for this team.
Two teams that have shown a willingness to trade into the top 10, doing their homework on what it would cost: The #Falcons and the #Redskins. For Washington, it would likely be for a QB. For Atlanta, the options are varied.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 25, 2019
7:18 AM: I am ready. My body is ready. My soul is ready.
7:14 AM: Agree. The Jaguars need a right tackle and Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams checks a lot of boxes. Although a game changing tight end is important, getting some help on the right side of the offensive line is key.
Right now I think it’s Jonah Williams. It will probably change 10 times before noon.— Harry Montana (@AlfieBCC) April 25, 2019
