If you’ve been following me here or on Twitter, you may know that I’ve repeatedly said I refuse to cover the draft in any major detail until the beginning of March. Today is that day.
I’ve been diving into the draft, especially at the top end since that’s where the Jaguars pick, and one thing is becoming apparent. The Jaguars aren’t likely to get to Morris Claiborne with the 7th pick. The mock draft I’m currently working collaboratively on has him going 5th.
That said, there’s a lot of talent at the top end of this draft. Two quarterbacks will most likely be taken in the top 5, making the Jaguars’ 7th pick essentially the 5th non-quarterback pick of the draft.
We’ll be beginning to get deeper in the draft over the next couple of weeks. The beginning of free agency will probably put the draft on the back burner for a little while, but we’ll get right back to it once things die back down.
