’14 Mock draft, v. 3.0

Posted Apr 28, 2014

South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney mocked to the Houston Texans No. 1 overall; Clemson WR Sammy Watkins to the Jaguars at No. 3.

JACKSONVILLE – Ten days and counting …

Already? Really? What took so long? All of those questions may be on your mind as the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, and all would be valid questions with the draft two weeks later than normal and time strangely seeming to drag and race at the same time.

The draft indeed is fast approaching. Yet, to draftniks, it seems like it will never arrive.

But here were are in late April, and if our NFL offseason body clocks are rightfully telling us the draft should have been this past weekend, rest assured it will arrive soon enough.

Which brings us to the Jaguars.com 2014 NFL Mock Draft, version 3.0.

While NFL general managers may use the extra two pre-draft weeks to prepare, we at jaguars.com will use them to explore various scenarios at the top of the draft. In mock draft 3.0 we’ll start over in a sense, but it will be a restart with a twist.

Two weeks ago, in v 1.0, we mocked South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to the Houston Texans at No. 1 overall. That’s one of two ways the Texans seem likely to go, with the other option being quarterback. In v 2.0, we mocked Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel to the Texans at No. 1, projecting Clowney to fall to the Jaguars.

This week, we’ll let the pendulum drift back to Clowney at No. 1, but instead of taking our v 1.0 route of having the Jaguars take the other top pass rusher in the draft – Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack – we’ll project Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Jaguars at No. 3.

As was the case with the Jaguars’ selection in our first two mocks, Watkins makes a lot of sense – and this well could be a scenario that plays out May 8. And as was the case in our first two mocks, a bunch of other scenarios could play out, too.

So, with 10 days and counting, here’s mock 3.0, for your viewing, projecting and arguing pleasure:
