Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Jacksonville Jaguars from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jaguars:
The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)
4. Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
Ringo put impressive reps on film, including the pick-six of Bryce Young in the national championship that clinched the victory. Georgia had five defensive players drafted in the first round this past weekend and should have a few more in next year's first round.
Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)
5. Bryan Bresee, IDL, Clemson
The Jags now have a talented pair of edge rushers, but they should use a disruptive force in the middle of the defensive line. Bresee missed most of last season due to injury, but at full strength, can be a dominant player.
Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)
7. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State
Playing alongside two top-20 picks in Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, Smith-Njigba still put up 1,606 yards receiving and nine TDs in 2021, including setting all the Rose Bowl records (15-347-3).
PFF - Michael Renner (5/2)
5. Arik Gilbert, TE, Georgia
After Kyle Pitts was billed as a generational tight end prospect just a year ago, we may not have to wait another generation for another tight end in that mold. Gilbert sat out the 2021 season for personal reasons after transferring from LSU. However, as a freshman in 2020, the 6-foot-5, 248-pounder hauled in 35 balls for 368 yards with nine broken tackles.
CBS - Ryan Wilson (5/2)
4. Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
Ringo is a long corner who moves well in space, and in Jacksonville, the team continues to build around Trevor Lawrence by ... beefing up the defense. Again, who knows what this -- or any -- roster will look like 12 months from now, but there's no denying that Ringo is one of the best CBs in college football.
The Draft Network - Joe Marino (4/30)
5. Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
The Jaguars are committed to Cam Robinson at left tackle but right tackle remains a concern unless Jawaan Taylor finds consistency. If not, Paris Johnson has the makings of the top blocker in next year's class.
The 33rd Team - Michael Schottey (4/30)
7. Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State
At 6'6" and just over 300lbs, Johnson bulked up and played primarily guard this past season for Ohio State. Even as a fish out of water, he was able to secure Second-Team All-Big Ten honors. Moving forward, he'll be the team's top tackle and has the physical prowess, pedigree and polish to be a Top 10 lineman in the NFL Draft.
Pro Football Network - Cam Mellor (4/30)
5. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU
The quarterback situation, unlike the situation at LSU, is settled for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite a shaky quarterback situation, Kayshon Boutte has routinely demonstrated his unreal ability to win at every level of the field. He has great hands at the catch point and an ability to separate anywhere on the field. The Jaguars get a true WR1.
Barstool Sports - Steven Cheah (4/30)
5. Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State
He'll have a lot more opportunities this year, but Smith-Njigba would be a welcome addition to a team that just paid top dollar for Christian Kirk!
