Mock draft tracker: New season, same theme

Mock5

JACKSONVILLE – A change in seasons didn’t change the theme.

With Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII ending the 2018 season, we move full bore into mock draft season – and analysts’ themes for the Jaguars’ likely direction in the 2019 NFL Draft remains the same:

Quarterback, quarterback, quarterback.

As for which quarterback that might be, analysts remain predictably split – with multiple analysts projecting Drew Lock of Missouri, Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State and Daniel Jones of Duke to the Jaguars at No. 7 overall in the ’19 draft.

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner, also received mention to the Jaguars at No. 7 as did a couple of other players at other positions.

Lock was projected to the Jaguars at No. 7 by three prominent analysts in the latest jaguars.com mock draft tracker, with Chad Reuter of NFL.com, Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz of USA Today and Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports all projecting him there.

“The Jaguars have to address the quarterback spot – and in this scenario, they aren't able to land Nick Foles or Teddy Bridgewater in free agency,” Trapasso wrote.

“Lock has been inconsistent, but so was Josh Allen -- the seventh overall pick last year -- coming out of college,” Reuter wrote.

Rob Rang of NFLDraftscout.com, R.J. White of CBS Sports and Luke Easterling of USA Today Draftwire all projected Haskins to the Jaguars – though Easterling projected the Jaguars needing to trade up to No. 4 with the Oakland Raiders to make the selection.

“It's finally time for a quarterback to come off the board,” White wrote. “It'll be interesting to see whether the Jaguars land a potential fix at quarterback before we even get to the draft.”

Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports and Jason McIntyre of the Big Lead projected Jones to the Jaguars at No. 7.

“I don't think Daniel Jones is the kind of talent that should be taken in the first 10 picks of an NFL Draft, but he's a quarterback, and no position is over-drafted more than quarterback,” Fornelli wrote.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report called Murray “the player that NFL scouts continue to be the most excited about.”

“He isn't a sure thing, but the buzz surrounding him is unlike anything I've heard in a long time,” Miller wrote.

Dan Kadar of SB Nation projected Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams to the Jaguars at No. 7 and Thor Nystron of Rotoworld projected Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson there.

“Hockenson is a force,” Nystron wrote. “He was arguably the nation’s best receiving tight end and doubled as a tour-de-force blocker.”
