Round by round

There are seven rounds in this year's draft which will result in 254 players being drafted including 32 compensatory picks.  The Jaguars were not awarded a compensatory pick in the 2011 draft.  The first round contains 32 picks.   New England (17th, 28th) has two selections in the first round.  Oakland does not have a first-round selection. 

Did you know?

The Jaguars have selected a player in all seven rounds only once (2009) in the last five years.

Breaking down first round picks

The Jaguars enter the first round of the draft on Thursday with the 16thoverall pick.  It marks the first time since 2007 the club is not scheduled to have a top-10 pick.  

The pick will be the team's 19thoverall first round selection and the club has drafted in the following manner: four defensive tackles, three wide receivers, two safeties, two running backs, two offensive linemen, one linebacker, one quarterback, one cornerback, one defensive end, one tight end. 

Here is a breakdown of the Jaguars' first round picks: 1995 (Tony Boselli, James Stewart), 1996 (Kevin Hardy), 1997 (Renaldo Wynn), 1998 (Fred Taylor, Donovin Darius), 1999 (Fernando Bryant), 2000 (R. Jay Soward), 2001 (Marcus Stroud), 2002 (John Henderson), 2003 (Byron Leftwich), 2004 (Reggie Williams), 2005 (Matt Jones), 2006 (Marcedes Lewis), 2007 (Reggie Nelson), 2008 (Derrick Harvey), 2009 (Eugene Monroe), 2010 (Tyson Alualu). 

Players chosen with 16thpick

When a team chooses a player with their first round pick, the expectations are immediately placed on the player to play a major role as a rookie, if not a starting role.  There have been several players selected with the 16thoverall pick since 1980 that have done more than that. 

Twelve of the 31 players went on to make the Pro Bowl including the NFL's all-time leading receiver, Jerry Rice (1985), and arguably the NFL's top safety in Troy Polamalu (2003).  The Titans owned the 16thoverall pick in 2010 and selected defensive end Derrick Morgan.  The last six players picked 16thoverall were defensive players.
