2016 NFL Draft: Round 1 Mock for All 32 Teams
By Peter Panacy
No. 5: Jacksonville Jaguars
2015 Record: 5-11
The Pick: CB Jalen Ramsey, Florida State
The Jacksonville Jaguars need all the help they can get on the defensive side of the ball. Jacksonville finished 2015 with the league’s second-worst defense having allowed 448 points. The Jags pass defense allowed 4,291 yards through the air — No. 29 in the NFL.
Needless to say, Jacksonville needs some reinforcements within its secondary. And few better would fit the team’s needs than Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
Ramsey is versatile on the field and can play both the safety and cornerback positions. But he’s also strong in blitz and pressure packages with five sacks generated and 15.5 tackles for a loss over three seasons in college.
The Jaguars have a ton of needs on this side of the ball, but adding Ramsey would alleviate a good chunk of those concerns.
Next: No. 6: Baltimore Ravens
