In our first mock draft of the 2019 draft season on genjag dot com we had the Jaguars going all offense through the first four rounds. That doesn’t change here, but a number of the picks do. Kyler Murray entering the draft makes it a two horse race at QB. Let’s take a look at how things might unfold for the Jaguars on draft day.
THIS is your 2019 GenJag Jaguars Mock Draft 2.0
Round 1 - #7 Overall: QB Kyler Murray, Junior, Oklahoma
Kyler Murray entering the draft changes the entire complexion of the first round and the rounds there after. His combination of accuracy, athleticism, and big play ability — both as a passer and a runner — is unparalleled. He’s not the safest QB back in the draft — that would be Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins — but he is the most electrifying. Here, I have Haskins going off the board to the Giants at six and the Jaguars being gifted Kyler Murray. The idea of Tom Coughlin pulling the trigger on a 5’10’’ QB in round one still doesn’t seem likely, but he’s the obvious choice for so many reasons. He could be the poster boy for the new NFL. And if Darrell Bevell does, in fact, get hired to be the Jaguars new OC, it’s hard to imagine him not having a major man crush on Murray. With Kyler Murray the Jaguars immediately become one of the most intriguing and dynamic teams in the NFL.
Round 2 - #38 Overall: WR Kelvin Harmon, Junior, NC State
Now it’s time to give Kyler Murray some weapons. The receivers that project to be impact players on the Jaguars roster next year have decent height with Marqise Lee and Dede Westbrook at six feet and DJ Chark at six-foot-three, but they lack physicality. That’s where Harmon comes in. The six-foot-three, 214 pound WR from NC State plays with tremendous toughness. He’s ready to be a major contributor now and could become a Pro Bowl type X receiver for the Jaguars down the line. The fact that he consistently gives full effort, both as a blocker and receiver, won’t be lost on Tom Coughlin and company.
Round 3 - #69 Overall: TE TJ Hockenson, Sophomore, Iowa
The 2018 Mackey Award winner (best tight end in college football) has all the tools to be a stud at the next level. This TE class is loaded with upper echelon talent, so the Jaguars get lucky that a prospect with limited risk falls all the way to the third round for them. Like Harmon, Hockenson will help out the Jaguars in the blocking department and as a receiving threat.
Round 3 - #94 Overall: RB Devin Singletary, Junior, FAU
Even with Leonard Fournette expected to return in 2019 the Jaguars will need to fortify their RB position. The signing of Thomas Rawls helped out with that, but the Jaguars should look to add a talented runner in the draft. Singletary only needs to take a quick drive up I-95 to get to Jacksonville. The biggest asset that Singletary has is his ability to cut and cut and cut again. He’ll make a lot of defenders miss at the next level, something Jaguars running backs couldn’t do in 2018. Singletary has starting potential in the NFL, but doesn’t have amazing top end speed. Along with his strong ability to cut and make defenders miss, he’s a load to bring down and will break tackles at the NFL level with his strength and balance.
Round 4 - #103 Overall: Interior OL Michael Deiter, Senior, Wisconsin
Wisconsin has a long history of producing top flight NFL draft prospects along their O-Line. Deiter played both center and tackle in college, but projects as a strong interior offensive lineman. He should be able to transition to guard or center at the next level. The Jaguars need to get stronger at right guard and Deiter will fill in nicely. At 6’6’’ and 321 lbs. with a strong anchor and good strength he’ll be a competent starter as a rookie. The Jaguars could elect to play him at center and move Brandon Linder back to guard. Either way, the combo of Andrew Norwell, Brandon Linder, and Michael Deiter on the inside could develop into one of the best interior O-line groups in all of football.
