JACKSONVILLE – The quarterback consensus remains strong.
That’s unlikely to change for the Jaguars as the 2019 NFL Draft approaches, and it certainly was the case in the latest jaguars.com mock draft tracker.
Six mock drafts, five projecting quarterbacks for the Jaguars.
That was the count in the second jaguars.com 2019 Mock Draft tracker, with five analysts projecting a total of three quarterbacks to the Jaguars in the Top 10 of the 2019 NFL Draft.
As was the case in the first mock drafter, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins remained a popular selection for the Jaguars. And as was the case the previous week, multiple analysts are projecting a trade up in the draft involving the Jaguars and Haskins.
Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com projected the Jaguars moving from No. 7 overall to No. 2 overall in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers for Haskins.
“The Jaguars get their franchise quarterback, which officially ends the Blake Bortles era in Jacksonville,” Wilson wrote. “The only question becomes how long before Haskins, who finally declared for the draft, assumes the starting job full-time.
Chris Trapasso of CBSSports.com projected the Jaguars moving from No. 7 to No. 5 in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“The Jaguars can't afford to see the Giants land a quarterback one pick in front of them, so they move up with Tampa to get Haskins,” Trapasso wrote.
Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus projected Haskins to the Jaguars at No. 7 overall. Dane Brugler of The Athletic projected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones to the Jaguars at No. 7 while Dan Kadar of SB Nation projected Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray – the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner who early this week declared his eligibility for the draft – to the Jaguars.
“There is legitimate buzz around Murray,” Kadar wrote.
