Mock draft tracker: Focused on the line

Mock12

JACKSONVILLE – A consensus is being reached. For now, anyway.

With the Jaguars having signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles as an unrestricted free agent last week, those who project such things have found a new popular focus for the Jaguars in the Top 10 of the 2019 NFL Draft.

That position is offensive line, with seven of 13 draft analysts included in this week’s 11th 2019 jaguars.com mock draft projecting the Jaguars to select the position at No. 7 overall.

The most prominent projection for the Jaguars in the Top 10?

That was once again University of Florida offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor, who was projected to the Jaguars by Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports, Danny Kelly of the Ringer, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com and R.J. White of CBS Sports.

“If Nick Foles is the face of the franchise (temporarily or otherwise), you're going to need to protect him,” Wilson wrote, with White adding: “The Jaguars addressed their quarterback issue by landing the biggest fish in free agency in Foles, and that frees them up to go a different direction here.”

Brooks wrote that Taylor would “give the Jaguars a rugged edge blocker to help them get back to their run-heavy roots.”

Doug Farrar of USA Today Touchdownwire and Nate Davis of USA Today projected offensive tackle Andre Dillard of Washington State to the Jaguars.

“The Jaguars signed Nick Foles and jettisoned Blake Bortles in hope that they’ve finally got a quarterback who can take advantage of their potentially great defense and above-average run game,” Farrar wrote. “Now, it’s time to give Foles his optimal blind side protector.”

Dan Kadar of SB Nation projected Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams to the Jaguars.

“If [running back] Le’Veon Bell being signed by the Jets was the most expected move this free agency period, the Jaguars signing Nick Foles was right behind it,” Kadar wrote. “The Jaguars also signed [right tackle] Cedric Ogbuehi, but he’s not a starter-level player at right tackle. Williams could be, and he’d help keep Foles vertical.”

Luke Easterling of USA Today Draftwire projected Mississippi wide receiver D.K. Metcalf at No. 7.

“Now that Nick Foles is clearly the team’s franchise quarterback, the Jags need to surround him with as much help as possible,” Easterling wrote.

While Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports was the lone analyst in this week’s mock-draft tracker projecting defense to the Jaguars in the Top 10 with Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary, NFL Media Analyst Charles Davis projected Iowa tight end Noah Fant there.

“Already a top prospect, Fant blew the doors off the combine in Indy, and provides a great -- and needed -- target for new Jags QB Nick Foles, who made great use of Pro Bowl TE Zach Ertz in Philadelphia,” Davis wrote.

Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson also remained a popular selection for the Jaguars, with Will Brinson of CBS Sports and Conor Orr of SI.com projecting him at No. 7.

“Maybe the first woah-eliciting pick of this mock draft, but the rationale is this: Jacksonville needs clean, productive offensive players who can do multiple things right away,” Orr wrote.
