The 2020 NFL Draft is just hours away. It is actually here. And the Jacksonville Jaguars have two picks in the first round and a player in Yannick Ngakoue who could be traded for a third first round pick. Will they try and trade down? Will they stay put and go after a defensive lineman? What about Isaiah Simmons?

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

10:40 PM: And here were are. LSU defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson is the second pick of the first round for Jacksonville.

10:24 PM: Ugh. The Dallas Cowboys got CeeDee Lamb just a few spots ahead of us. Hopefully Justin Jefferson is still available at No. 20 overall.

9:29 PM: Jaguars select CB C.J. Henderson with the No. 9 overall pick. Okay.


9:11 PM: The Carolina Panthers have taken Derrick Brown at No. 7 overall. We might get Isaiah Simmons. Oh my God.

9:07 PM: Oh man, the Los Angeles Chargers have made Justin Herbert the No. 6 overall pick.

9:06 PM: They did it. The Miami Dolphins tanked for Tua. I am so proud of them.

8:48 PM: I really thought Isaiah Simmons would go No. 4 overall to the New York Giants. This is good news, folks.

8:39 PM: Noooooooooo... Jeff Okudah is off the board at No. 3 overall to the Detroit Lions. No Dave Caldwell magic yet.

8:37 PM: As expected, Chase Young is going No. 2 overall to Washington.

8:26 PM: Joe Burrow is officially the top pick. Let’s go.

7:38 PM: Well, there you have it. Joe Burrow will be the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2020.

4:33 PM: Dave Caldwell recently called Lions general manager Bob Quinn. Could a trade up be in play for Jacksonville? And for which player? Jeff Okudah makes sense, as does a quarterback.

3:18 PM: More clarity on a potential Yannick Ngakoue trade. Please, please, please let a deal get done.

2:50 PM: Oh no.

1:40 PM: Leonard Fournette is playing on this team in 2020.

10:58 AM: I... did not expect Marqise Lee to sign with the New England Patriots.

10:09 AM: Apparently, it’s not the trade compensation that’s holding up a deal but Yannick Ngakoue’s trade demands. You love to see it.

9:06 AM: Call me crazy, but I still think a deal gets done today.

7:24 AM: How many legs are we talkin’ here, Big Blue?

7:13 AM: This is an absolutely insane mock draft and I am here for it no matter how bad it would be for Jacksonville.

7:00 AM: This is from last night. Thank God it’s Jason La Canfora and therefore not correct at all.
