Tristan Schaar’s Jacksonville Jaguars First Six Mock Draft

A few weeks from now, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be welcomed to the podium with echoing boos as he announces the beginning of the 2024 NFL Draft.

That said, as draft day gets closer and closer it’s officially time to lock in and create the perfect draft scenario for the Jacksonville Jaguars

NFL experts and analysts have been mocking many different positions to the Jaguars at Pick 17, so I’ve decided to take a different route due to the depth the draft class holds and accepted a trade offer from the Dallas Cowboys to move back to the 24th pick.

This allows the Jaguars to select one of the draft’s premier pass catchers in Adonai Mitchell while also adding some more draft capital in the later rounds. 

Another one of the Jaguars pressing needs in this year’s draft is in the secondary. Jacksonville addressed the safety position in free agency so when T.J. Tampa was available at pick 36 trading up to add the primary man coverage and press-heavy cornerback seemed like a no-brainer.

Finally, to wrap up the final first three, defensive tackle Michael Hall Jr. was able to cross off another important need going into the 2024 season. 

Hall’s been given some high praise for his ability to beat the single blocks with a slide step and “swim move” which allows him to have a strong pass-rush upside. 

Although Jacksonville recently signed Arik Armstead to a 3-year deal, he’ll be coming off surgery on a torn meniscus so Michael Hall Jr. will add much-needed insurance to the defensive line.

Protecting Trevor Lawrence is and should be the number-one priority for the Jacksonville Jaguars as long as he’s on the team. 

Christian Mahogany (84th) and Matt Goncalves (139th) could be some good second-day guys still left on the board to ensure the depth on the offensive line is at its best. 

Mahogany and Goncalves also have the potential to move themselves into starting roles within a few years.

In between them at 108th overall is Khyree Jackson. Once again the secondary deteriorated at the end of last season so it’s something that needs to be addressed. Jackson is 24 years old, which is now considered “old” for incoming prospects, but his experience gives him the upper hand.

Khyree stands at 6’3 and ran a 4.50 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine while also having the ability to elude blockers as a threat to quarterbacks as a blitzer. Another player recently hired defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen could incorporate into his secondary packages.
