Worst Case Scenario - Jaguars Mock Draft


Recommended Posts

I thought it would be fun to tease out a Jaguars mock draft. They are in an interesting spot. The are set at QB and have some offensive talent in place. The #3 pick could be in play for a team interested in Marcus Mariota. A strong draft could go a long way in making this team much more competitive.

 

TRADE: Cleveland is fed up with their QB situation and trades their #12, #19, and #108 to Jaguars for the 3rd pick which they use to select Marcus Mariota.

 

Jaguars Draft

 

#12) Danny Shelton DT Washington - 6'2" 330lbs

Jaguars go with a young building block on their defensive line to team with Red Bryant and Sen'Derrick Marks. Shelton is too good to pass up at this point.

 

#19) La'el Collins OT LSU - 6'5" 310lbs

The Jaguars have to improve their offensive line. Collins gives them a boost at either guard or right tackle. In order for Bortles to improve in year 2, the line must block better.

 

#36) Eric Kendricks ILB UCLA - 6'0 230lbs

Gus Bradley needs a Bobby Wagner type for his defense. From what I have read, Kendricks is one of the best cover linebackers in the draft. He will likely time as one of the fastest as well.

 

#67) Mario Edwards Jr. DE - 6'3" 285lbs

This is Gus Bradley's Michael Bennett. Edwards was a bit of an underachiever at FSU, and he needs a strong combine. I think he might be a great fit for Bradley.

 

#81) (TRADE) David Cobb RB Minnesota - 5'11" 225lbs

Jaguars package their two 4th rounders to move up to get a RB. A favorite of mine. Cobb improves on a shaky group of running backs currently led by underachiever Toby Gerhart. An improved offensive line will along with an improved stable of running backs will help Bortles and the Jags offense this season.

 

#131) Ladarius Gunter CB Miami - 6'1" 205lbs

Big corner who can press. Jags are quietly building a solid secondary.

 

#164) Jamon Brown OT Louisville - 6'6" 330lbs

Depth on the offensive line

 

#195) Darius Kilgo DT Maryland - 6'3" 310 lbs

Depth for defensive line

Worst case scenario for the Colts when dealing with the Jags is for Bortles to make a big step up along with his young wr's and then for them to land an edge rusher like Shane Ray or Vic Beasley for the next 10+ or so years or Fowler

That would be a really good draft for the Jags. I'm worried about them in the near future too. I think Bortles will take some big steps this next season.

I'm not worried. I'm actually really glad. Not sure if this is weird but I have some AFC South Pride so I want to see all the teams in our division do good. ( Just not better than the colts.)

    • Regardless of whose idea it was that move doesn’t happen without Irsay’s okay so your point is very good.     It’s no secret Irsay wanted smooth transitions with a line of succession to keep continuity going like they had with Dungy to Caldwell. I know several here will argue Caldwell wasn’t good but he started 14-0 and got to a Super Bowl in his first year and made the playoffs the next.  Up to that point Irsay would have said it was working.  So I fully believe Irsay wanted the samething with the Polians.  Also it’s not like Bill went out and just brought Chris in out of nowhere.  He had worked his way up through the draft scout team, not unlike Ballard and most GMs do, and had been groomed for years for that job.     Lets not forget a few years before this the Falcons explored brining Chris Polian and Jim Caldwell to Atlanta to run that franchise and try to copy what the Colts had done.  That’s why both Chris and Caldwell got title changes in Dungy’s last season.  So the Colts weren’t the only team eyeing Chris for a GM job.     Now it didn’t work and we have the benefit of hindsight to say the Colts should have never done it but at the time it seemed very logical.  
    • They dont have Grover's extension figured into 2021 cap number yet and our roll over is already figured in.   We are setting at the $65-$66m currently depending on that fi ao cap number($175/ or $176m).   https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/indianapolis-colts/   https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/cap/2021/   Spotrac doesnt have Grover figured in either but I think the numbers are easier to read there by scrolling all the way down.
    • That would require a new CBA among other things. And it’d turn that into what the NBA did. So I sure hope the league does not grant any exceptions nor make any concessions. Period. All but 2-3 of those teams were over the cap prior to the cut. They mismanaged the cap so it’s on those teams. 
    • He was a rookie that didn't get much time in preseason due to being banged up. That's an unreasonable expectation.   Here's the video of the hit:   Keep in mind that this is slowed down and Harrison Smith hits like a mac truck, so any contact from him usually carries a LOT of force behind it. In this case, all of this force was to the side of Parris' planted leg. This isn't some lingering hamstring or foot issue that just keeps coming back over and over again. Smith doesn't shoot for his knee and we most likely still have Parris Campbell on the active roster.
    • I will give Irsay some responsibility for letting Polian put Chris in as the GM.  Irsay should have kept a better eye on things rather then letting Polian have full rein.
