We are running through our FanSided NFL Mock draft at the moment. This is where the editors around the network make the selections for their teams. We will be publishing the entire mock when it is complete on this site and will post each selection individually as they come in as well.
Here are the selections that have already been made by our FanSided editors:
|1. Houston Texans||Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina|
|2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins)||Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo|
With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select…
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Selection made by Daniel Lage, Editor of Black and Teal
Here is the analysis on the selection:
A popular pick here is Sammy Watkins, but I’m going do what the Jaguars should do as opposed to what people think they will do.
I have had Bridgewater as the top quarterback for the entire draft process. The Jaguars have a handful of needs, but by far the most dire one is at quarterback. Bridgewater can come in right away and compete with Chad Henne, and he should start at some point if not on opening day.
General manager David Caldwell has talked about a number of traits he looks for in a franchise quarterback and Bridgewater has all of them. Despite all the hits his stock has taken during the draft process, Bridgewater has all the tools be a productive quarterback.
