It feels like Christmas morning, folks. The 2021 NFL Draft is finally here and the Jacksonville Jaguars (again) have two picks in the first round.

We know exactly what they’re going to do with the No. 1 overall pick — it’s Trevor Lawrence, full stop. I mean, the city changed its colors to purple and orange all over the city and its bridges, for God’s sake. But what about that second first-round pick? Will Urban Meyer force Trent Baalke’s hand and move up for a pair of future playmakers? Will he trade down and scoop up even more selections? Stay put and grab a guy in the trenches?

We’re about to find out!

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.
