With the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, the NFL season is officially over (sad face).

Jacksonville Jaguars news is relatively quiet right now, but will be picking up in the next few weeks and months with the re-signing of players, NFL Combine, free agency, and NFL Draft all on the horizon.

For now, here is a roundup of all news and notes currently regarding the Jaguars:

Updates:

Mock Drafts:

I am on record as saying that I find early mock drafts to be highly inaccurate and somewhat useless at this juncture in the offseason before the combine, but now that the Super Bowl has been played, mock drafts are going to dominate content right now. Here are a few notable recent ones below:

  • In the latest Jaguars.com mock draft tracker, Clemson linebacker/safety Isaiah Simmons is a popular pick for the Jaguars at No. 9 overall, while many analysts project at cornerback at No. 20 overall, although the player varied.
  • Matt Miller of Bleacher Report just posted his post-Super Bowl mock draft. He also projects Simmons at No. 9 and South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw at No. 20. Many Jags fans would love this scenario.
  • Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports also published his post-Super Bowl mock, and Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas is the pick at nine. Wilson mocks a bit of a surprise at 20, with Justin Madubuike, a defensive lineman out of Texas A&M.
  • NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein recently posted his mock draft 1.0, and he actually thinks the Jags go for Kinlaw at No. 9 overall. He slots in Flroida cornerback C.J. Henderson at 20.
  • Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network unveiled his mock draft 5.0, and the Jaguars take Aubrun defensive tackle Derrick Brown and LSU linebacker Patrick Queen.
  • Todd McShay just released his lasted mock draft (ESPN+ Insider access required). He goes with Kinlaw at No. 9, and a bit of a reach at No. 20, with USC offensive tackle Austin Jackson.

The theme with the above mock drafts is defense. Problem is the Jags need a lot of help on both sides of the ball.

There you have it, all of the Jaguars news and notes here in early February 2020. Stay tuned to Big Cat Country for all of the latest happenings for Jacksonville.
