Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup 3.0


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:

EDSFootball - Hanson (1/1)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Losers of 14 consecutive games, the Jags won the #tankfortrevor sweepstakes.

2021 brings optimism for Duval County with a franchise-changing quarterback prospect, new front office and (presumably) new coaching staff taking over. Jacksonville has the most available 2021 cap space (via Over the Cap) and tons of draft capital. Not only do they have the first pick and five of the top 65 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, but the Jags have nine picks through Round 5.

Happy New Year, Jags' fans!

21. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

With Trevor Lawrence the lock at No. 1, the Jaguars would be wise to use their treasury chest of draft picks on putting Lawrence in a position to succeed. Cosmi has experience at both tackle spots (RT in 2018 and LT in 2019-20), but current left tackle Cam Robinson is scheduled to be a free agent in 2021.

San Diego Union Tribune (12/31)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

I'm not sure who was happier the Jets won a game, the Jaguars or the Heisman finalist? There's a lot of smoke suggesting the top prospect in this draft class prefers staying below the Mason-Dixon line, but let's be real. Picking between the Jags and Jets is not exactly a Sophie's Choice scenario.

21. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

Cam Robinson is a free agent and Cosmi is likely an upgrade anyways. You can't develop a young quarterback if you don't have a decent offensive line. It's science. Cosmi dominated in 26 games at right tackle. He did the same at left tackle this season.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (12/31)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

The Jacksonville Jaguars need a quarterback.

Trevor Lawrence has been destined for the first overall selection since almost his first start for the Clemson Tigers.

Do not overthink this, Jacksonville. Sure, over the next few weeks people will start to pick Lawrence's game apart. Such is the life cycle of a draft quarterback. But if you are looking for as solid a quarterback prospect as you can find, and one that is schematically-diverse, Lawrence is your guy.

21. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

They added their quarterback, and now Jacksonville adds a weapon to go with him. Taking advantage of a bit of a slide, the Jaguars swoop in and select Jaylen Waddle, a talented wideout from Alabama. Waddle's season ended early due to a fractured ankle against Tennessee, but that should not scare teams away from him. He can operate out of the slot and along the boundary, and when paired with DJ Chark Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. he gives the Jaguars three versatile and explosive weapons on the outside.

PFF - Gayle (12/29)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

This is a no-brainer decision for the Jags. PFF's lead draft analyst, Mike Renner, wrote recently that Lawrence “is truly the type of prospect who comes around only once in a generation.” Jacksonville can sprint the card in with confidence.

21. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

The Jaguars need to continue to invest draft capital in the secondary. Sidney Jones is the only Jacksonville defender with 100-plus snaps at outside cornerback and a PFF grade above 61.0. Rookie C.J. Henderson should continue to get better with experience as long as he can get healthy, but the rest of the depth chart is a bit of a mess.

Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell is a former five-star athlete with absurd size, length and athleticism for the position. He's well worth a first-round investment, even if he too needs time to develop like Henderson.

CBS Sports - Wilson (12/29)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

The Jags have wrapped up the No. 1 overall selection, which means that Trevor Lawrence is headed to Jacksonville. There is no alternate plan because this is it. Lawrence has a chance to be special and no trade offers will be enticing enough to prompt the Jags to move off this pick.

21. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

Toney won't play in the Gators' bowl game but he's done more than enough to make his case as a legit first-rounder. And in Jacksonville, he'll give Trevor Lawrence a much-needed weapon alongside Laviska Shenault and DJ Chark.

Pro Football Network - Miller (12/26)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Chalk. I won't physically harm anyone who has another name here at one. However, if they do have another name going at the top of the draft, they are not being predictive.

Unless something crazy happens, the second coming of Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, John Elway, and Leonardo da Vinci all combined into one will hear his name called first come April. Once again, “weknowdis.” Lawrence and his hair are headed to Jacksonville Beach instead of the Upper Bay. The Jets ruined their chance.

21. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Are you a bit surprised to just now be seeing Rousseau's name in this 2021 2-Round NFL Mock Draft? Rousseau's hype machine could only last so long. His production in 2019 was silly, but the tape just never seemed to match it. He's incredibly long but doesn't look particularly explosive as an edge rusher from a first-step and bend perspective.

In an NFL that continuously improves getting the ball out of the quarterback's hands quickly, capturing the edge immediately is a necessary trait in a modern pass rusher. Rousseau's best reps come from the inside, where he can use his length to collapse the pocket through speed to power.

PFF - Renner (12/23)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

It's going to take 15 straight losses, but the Jaguars are only a few months away from a possible decade of prosperity. Lost in the whole “how many No. 1 picks at quarterback actually won a Super Bowl with the team that drafted them” conversation is the fact that consistently losing hurts. Even if the Jaguars never win a Super Bowl with Lawrence, they'll still win more games than they did before he arrived.

25. Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina

The Jaguars' plan at cornerback this year was C.J. Henderson and pray. It's pretty much the reason why they're in line for the No. 1 overall pick. Adding Horn would change that and give the Jaguars two corners capable of playing a hefty amount of man coverage.

Bleacher Report - Miller (12/22)

1. Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

The Jags had to be celebrating as they watched the Jets line up in victory formation. That win means Jacksonville--if it loses its next two games--will own the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft thanks to the tiebreaker rules the league uses (record, then strength of schedule). If the team with the first selection has even a question about its quarterback situation, Lawrence will be the pick. The Jaguars do need a quarterback, so Lawrence is the pick.

25. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

The Jaguars picked the best quarterback in the class, and now they'll move to protect him. Darrisaw is a little raw, but his athleticism and potential could have him climbing boards like Mekhi Becton did last year.
