Mock Draft/Pro Day tracker: Staying offensive

Jaguars.com 2018 Mock Draft/Pro Day tracker v3.0: Analysts projections continue varying widely for Jaguars at No. 29 overall in 2018 NFL Draft

 

JACKSONVILLE – Inside or outside?

Skill guy or big guy?

Those are two areas on which NFL analysts continue to disagree when it comes to the Jaguars and the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but those are far from the only areas.

Not surprisingly considering the Jaguars’ position late in the first round – and considering we’re still early in the pre-draft process – opinions continue to vary widely about the team’s projected direction with the No. 29 overall selection in late April.

Offensive line? Quarterback? Tight end? Wide receiver?

All are considered possibilities, and the consensus among those who project such things remains that the Jaguars likely will select an offensive player. But specifics remain elusive, with two prominent analysts releasing mocks in the last week projecting an offensive lineman to the Jaguars late in the first round, while two predict a wide receiver with the selection, two predict a tight end and one projects the team trading up to select a quarterback.

The lone player projected by more than one analyst to the Jaguars in the last week? Tight end Dallas Goedert of South Dakota State, a player Dan Kadar of SB Nation compared favorably to Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.

“The NFL is a copycat league, and there will be plenty of teams this offseason looking for their own version of Zach Ertz — in other words, a tight end who beats defenders with a mixture of crafty route running, athleticism, and size,” Kadar wrote. “That’s basically Goedert in a nutshell.”

NFL Media analyst Charley Casserly projected Texas offensive tackle Connor Williams to the Jaguars at No. 29 overall, while Chris Trapasso of CBSSports.com projected Georgia guard Isaiah Wynn there.

“Wynn landing in Jacksonville would help Leonard Fournette's inside running and keep Blake Bortles from facing inside pressure,” Trapasso wrote.

Josh Norris of Rotoworld and Chad Reuter of NFL.com both saw the Jaguars selecting wide receiver, with Norris projecting Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk and Reuter projecting James Washington of Oklahoma State.

“The Jaguars have decisions to make at receiver with Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee approaching free agency and Allen Hurns out of guaranteed money on his contract,” Norris wrote. “Kirk would give them another big play threat, especially with the ball in his hands.”

R.J. White of CBSSports.com, in a mock draft that featured trades involving every team, projected the Jaguars moving up from No. 29 to No. 10 overall to select quarterback Lamar Jackson of Louisville.

“If they want to chase a guy with a higher ceiling than Blake Bortles, making a Pat Mahomes-type trade to move up to No. 10 for Jackson could be in play,” White wrote.
