JACKSONVILLE – The long-time favorite remains the favorite.

For the purposes of the 2019 NFL Draft, that means many prominent analysts still believe the Jaguars likely to go offensive line in the Top 10.

The most popular selection for the Jaguars at No. 7 overall remains Jawaan Taylor, an offensive tackle from the University of Florida who many analysts believe could be a right tackle in the NFL – and who many analysts also believe could be the first offensive lineman selected in the ’19 draft.

“After their disastrous 2018, the Jaguars added a new quarterback in Nick Foles, and now they add a ton of attitude with a road-grading right tackle who can protect the QB and open holes in the running game,” NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote of Taylor.

Zierlien was one of five analysts projecting Taylor to the Jaguars at No. 7 in this week’s 12th 2019 jaguars.com mock draft tracker, with Pete Prisco of CBS Sports also continuing to project Taylor to the Jaguars there.

“They pass on taking a quarterback for the future and take the best tackle in this class; Taylor will be a Day 1 starter at right tackle,” Prisco wrote.

Kalyn Kahler of Monday Morning Quarterback, Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN and Matt Miller of Bleacher Report also projected Taylor to the Jaguars.

“With Nick Foles taking over, he's going to need protection on the right side; that's where Taylor has experience, as he started 33 games there at Florida,” Kiper wrote.

Tight end and defensive line also continued as popular selections for the Jaguars – and Michigan defensive lineman Rashan Gary was the selection of choice for the Jaguars by two analysts.

“Though he isn't generating the same kind of pre-draft buzz as [Ohio State edge rusher Joey] Bosa or [Kentucky edge rusher Josh] Allen, Gary is viewed by a lot of folks as the edge rusher with the greatest upside,” Schrager wrote. “

Ryan Wilson and Jared Dubin of CBS Sports projected Mississippi State edge player Montez Sweat to the Jaguars.

“The Jaguars had to cut a few talented defenders in order to make room for Nick Foles on the books, so they snag Sweat in order to maintain their versatile, talented defensive front,” Dubin wrote.

R.J. White of CBS Sports projected Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson to the Jaguars at No. 7.

“The Jaguars have a strong core on defense and have now upgraded their quarterback situation, so this draft should be about boosting the weapons in the passing game and improving the blocking in front of Nick Foles,” White wrote
