Jacksonville Jaguars 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Jacksonville Jaguars from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jaguars:

Rotoworld - Nystrom (8/21)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

As with most top prospects who drew scouts' eyes early in their careers, Trevor Lawrence started to get nitpicked a bit over the summer as folks dove into his tape. He wasn't as mechanically sound as some would like for a presumptive top-pick candidate, Tee Higgins salvaged oodles of yards for him downfield on jump balls, etc. I'd caution against overthinking this one. Lawrence is a prodigy, an elite pocket passer with a big frame and a strong arm who also happens to be a strong athlete, capable of inflicting damage as a runner and making plays outside of structure. He's going to keep getting better.

11. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

A skyscraper with athleticism, Cosmi is a prototype left tackle, a 6-foot-7, 310-pounder with smooth-shuffling agility. He needs some technical work, sure, but only Penei Sewell among the top-20 or so preseason 2021 NFL Draft OT prospects out-graded him by PFF's metrics in each of the past two years. With Trevor Lawrence locked up, the Jags go looking for their next Tony Boselli to protect him.

PFF - Renner (8/19)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Lawrence has been "the guy" ever since he was in high school. He was "the guy" once again when he broke the PFF true freshman QB grading record with a 90.6 passing grade, and then after some early-season hiccups that saw him pressing a bit, Lawrence regained his elite status down the stretch of 2019 with a 90.8 passing grade from Week 4 on. However, he'll have to really do it this year now that his top two targets from last season -- Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross -- are gone.

What sets him apart from the rest is his prodigious arm strength combined with a quick release. He's taken fewer sacks in his college career (32) than Justin Fields has (36) despite dropping back 393 more times and dealing with a far worse offensive line from a grading perspective.

11. Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

The Jaguars' cornerback room went from being the best in the NFL to a question mark overnight. Pairing Farley up with 2020 top-10 pick C.J. Henderson could bring them back to the former within the next few years. Farley earned a 90.5 coverage grade in 2019 with a ridiculously low 26.8 passer rating allowed. He's got the size and top-end speed to put a lock on his half of the field.

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Jacksonville Jaguars rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Post-Draft NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Jaguars in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 32

The Jaguars ended last season just outside our bottom five but have spent both offseason rankings at the bottom. Even what appears to be a solid (and very large, with 12 players!) draft class doesn't change our outlook that this is going to be a very long, very difficult season in Jacksonville.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 31

They added some nice free-agent pieces and they had a good draft, but is that enough? That's doubtful. Is Gardner Minshew the answer?

Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Jacksonville Jaguars running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Ryquell Armstead108.1448.62.4315.4129.40.6276.1
Last year's fifth-round pick out of Temple averaged only 3.1 yards per carry in 2019, but he's a big back (5'11", 220 pounds) with good speed (4.45 forty) that averaged more than 10 yards per reception (10.3 Y/R). On the reserve/COVID list for a second time, it opens the door for Devine Ozigbo and rookie James Robinson to have large(r) roles in Week 1.
Chris Thompson57230.91.1447.4386.32.3782.78
With Jacksonville releasing Leonard Fournette, it opens the door for a substantial workload for Armstead (and the team's other backs). Fournette's release may not lead to a significant increase in carries for Thompson, but the third-down back could approach or exceed 50 receptions if he can stay healthy. Reunited with Jay Gruden, Thompson has at least 35 receptions in five consecutive seasons, but he has also missed five or more games in each of the past three years. While durability has been a challenge for Thompson, the third-down back has averaged 3.43 receptions per game (equivalent to 54.93 per 16 games) over that five-year stretch.
Devine Ozigbo98.3388.32.2112.395.30.2563.12
Fournette's release opens up a huge opportunity for the rest of the team's backs as his 341 touches are no longer on the roster. It's not a lock that Armstead handles the majority of early-down work following Fournette's release and Ozigbo is worthwhile pick in the double-digit rounds. An additional concern for both Armstead and Ozigbo is the impact that negative game script could have on the unit's production.
James Robinson45.2189.80.937.659.70.1931.67
