JAGUARS MOCK DRAFT 3.0 (7 ROUNDS)
With Kyler Murray now "fully committed" to football, it seems like the perfect time to release our Jaguars Mock Draft 3.0 AND include all seven rounds.
#5 Overall (via Buccaneers): QB, Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
Trade: Jaguars get #5 overall pick. Buccaneers get #7 overall pick, #95 overall pick, and a 2020 third round pick.
6'3'', 220 lbs.
I believe that the Jaguars are going to go all in on Dwayne Haskins. In doing so, they'll trade up to get in front of the Giants. Haskins has the arm. Haskins has the size. Haskins has the desire. He'll need to work on his throwing motion, but he grew throughout his only season as a collegiate starter. In his final three games at OSU Haskins completed 72.5% of his passes and threw 14 touchdowns to just one interception. The Jaguars are reportedly smitten with Haskins and scouted him live at least five teams in 2018. He doesn't have the experience that Tom Coughlin typically looks for with rookie quarterbacks, but he's got everything else. The Jaguars now have their quarterback of the future.
P.S. I also believe Kyler Murray won't be available at five. I see a team like the Redskins or Dolphins jumping into the top five to draft Murray.
#38 Overall: WR, Kelvin Harmon, NC State
6'3'', 214 lbs.
The Jaguars got their QB in the first round and in round two they get his number one weapon. Harmon compares favorably with Michael Thomas and Andre Johnson. He's got the size, speed, hands, route running ability, catch point skills, and physicality to be a top end X-receiver in an NFL offense. Need more convincing? He's already an elite run blocker at the position. It's possible that Harmon will be off the board at this point, but with so many defensive players and offensive lineman taken in the first round, Harmon falls to the Jaguars here.
#69 Overall: iOL, Michael Deiter, Wisconsin
6'6'', 328 lbs.
With AJ Cann on the way out, the Jaguars need a new interior offensive lineman. Michael Deiter played multiple positions along the O-Line at Wisconsin and his skill set projects to work in any NFL blocking scheme.
#103 Overall: TE, Dawson Knox, Ole Miss
6'4'', 247 lbs.
Dawson Knox will step in and fill the role of the seam-stretching tight end. He's a traits guy, as he rarely was utilized in college at Ole Miss on an offense that featured at least three NFL receivers. He shows strong hands, athleticism, strength, and the ability to get open down the middle. With prototypical size, Knox is a tight end prospect in the mold of George Kittle. He lacks production but has the skill set to become a number one tight end at the next level.
#165 Overall: WR, Emanuel Hall, Missouri
6'3'', 195 lbs.
The Jaguars should look to establish as much quality depth at the receiver position as possible. I'm a lot higher on Emanuel Hall than most, and I think he could develop into a contributor in a high powered offense. He needs to add some bulk to his frame, but his natural receiving ability is impressive. Hall plays with fire and has shown the ability to get open against all types of coverages thanks to his crisp routes. His big-play ability should excite Tom Coughlin and company. Hall averaged over 23 yards per catch during his final two years in college.
#199 Overall: RB, Jordan Scarlett, Florida
5'11'', 210 lbs.
There's not much draft hype surrounding Jordan Scarlett. Perhaps that stems from him missing the 2017 season due to a credit card fraud scheme that he and several other Gators were involved in. Or it could be the fact that he was cited with marijuana possession as a freshman back in 2015. Maybe it's due to him being part of a stable at runningbacks at Florida instead of being the lead back. Regardless, Scarlett is a talent at the position. If he's still available when round seven comes along, the Jaguars should sprint to the podium. He's got excellent contact balance, always makes the first defender miss and can take it to the house from anywhere on the field. He's only 210 lbs., which is on the lighter side for an every down back, but that's what Scarlett projects as at the next level. He's shown the ability to get open as a receiver and can pack a punch in pass pro. Two off-field incidents while at Florida are a concern, but the potential reward with this pick dramatically outweighs the risk.
