Jaguars Mock Draft Tracker 1.0: Many Possibilities, Opinions at No. 17

Jaguars 2024 Mock Draft 1.0

JACKSONVILLE – The possibilities are many. So are the opinions.

This is the first 2024 mock draft tracker. With the Jaguars selecting No. 17 overall, and with the 2024 NFL Draft still more than three months away, there not unexpectedly are nearly as many opinions as there are analysts in the first tracker.

Offensive line. Wide receiver. Cornerback.

Analysts in the tracker this past week projected multiple players at all those positions to the Jaguars in the middle of the first round, with Oregon State offensive tackle Taliese Fuaga among the more prominent selections.

"The Jaguars go offensive line to better protect [quarterback] Trevor Lawrence in 2024 and beyond," Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports wrote.

Troy Fautanu, a guard from Washington, also was projected to the Jaguars.

"Troy Fautanu has the kind of footwork you love to see in an offensive tackle and the passion for work that you love to see in an interior blocker," Dalton Miller of Pro Football Network wrote.

Multiple analysts also projected cornerback to the Jaguars, with players at the position projected there including Cooper DeJean of Iowa, Terrion Arnold of Alabama, Kool-Aid McKinstry of Alabama and Nate Wiggins of Clemson.

Cam Mellor of Pro Football Network called Wiggins "an incredibly gifted cover cornerback who has the physicality and reactionary skills needed to play against any receiver."

Other players projected to the Jaguars in this week's tracker: UCLA Edge Laiatu Latu, Florida State wide receiver Keon Coleman, Louisiana State wide receiver Malik Nabers, Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze, South Carolina wide receiver Xavier Legette and Illinois defensive lineman Jer'Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois.

"Jer'Zhan Newton is not only a multi-gap plugger in the run game but will draw double teams at 3-tech early in his career," Ryan Fowler of The Draft Network wrote.
