The Jaguars desperately need to get younger at the quarterback position, and it is not very likely…
Another Mock Draft for Jaguars
Many have had him off the board for character issues, but rumors of a failed drug test were proven wrong. Even Jaguars.com editor Vic Ketchman mentioned a hint towards Raji last week, and everyone loves his "hints". Raji was brought to Jacksonville for a visit in the last couple of weeks and I expect they did their due diligence. Raji becomes an immediate starter at defensive tackle and puts the Jaguars in the position to slowly begin a transition to a 34 defense, which I think they will do.
2. (39) - Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma -
Many people expect a wide receiver at the spot or even a defensive back;I think a player like Louis Delmas from Western Michigan is a strong possibility here. Loadholt offers a massive offensive lineman who can come in immediately and compete for the RT position. The Jaguars have commited to Maurice Jones-Drew and the best way to get the offense going is to ensure he has running lanes. Loadholt is likely not a left tackle at the NFL level, but he's the kind of RT you can rely on for 10+ years. Think John Runyan of the Eagles.
3. (72) - Sherrod Martin, CB/S, Troy -
Martin hails from the same school as last year's first-round pick Leodis McKelvin. While he's not as good of a prospect as McKelvin, he's a bit more versatile. He ran in the 4.45 range and at 6-1, 200 is plenty big to play the safety position. He is viewed as a "Brian Williams" type corner. He's not overly fast, but he is very physical and could double as a safety prospect.
4. (107) - Stephen McGee, QB, Texas A&M -
Might be a tad early for McGee to come off the board, but the Jaguars have shown interest. A lot of teams have shown interest actually, which could cause him to climb a little. McGee came into college as the top-rated pocket passer and played in the option. He was banged up running the option blowing out his non-throwing shoulder. He is a tremdous athlete with a good arm. He's very raw as a passer, but this gives him time to develop under Mike Shula.
5. (144) - Mike Thomas, WR, Arizona -
Mike Thomas is a smaller, speedy type of receiver, similar to alumni Dennis Northcutt. He's probably more suited in the slot, off the line of scrimmage, or as a flanker in the NFL. He showcased his skills at the Senior Bowl and has very good run after the catch ability. He runs very good routes and has great body control when going up for the ball.
6. (180) - Quinn Johnson, FB, LSU -
The Jaguars have shown some interest in pure fullbacks in this draft. I skipped picking any RB's earlier one, despite the fact that the Jaguars really like Andre Brown, because I think they intend to move Greg Jones to running back full time. Johnson is a prototype fullback and Kennedy Pola loves him.
7th round picks (in any order) -
Tony Carter, CB, FSU; Victor Butler, DE/OLB, Oregon St.; Dudley Guice, WR, Northwestern State (LA).
