April 24: It's widely believed that the Jaguars intend to address the quarterback position early in the 2013 NFL draft, but if recent reports are to be believed the number of options available to the team in the second round may be bigger than was originally thought.
According to Rotoworld, NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock reported that it's his belief that there will only be one quarterback taken in the first round, that signal-caller being Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. Meanwhile, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that he's "hearing" that the Jaguars have significant interest in USC quarterback Matt Barkley.
April 22: The reports speculating as to who the Jaguars are targeting with the second overall pick are picking up steam, and there appears to be something of a consensus developing.
According to Ryan O' Halloran of The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville has narrowed their choices to the quartet that Tony Pauline referenced the day before, that being Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan, BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah and offensive tackles Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M.
April 21: The 2013 NFL draft is just around the corner, and the Jaguars have apparently narrowed down their options with the second overall pick.
At least that's the latest from Tony Pauline of Draft Insider, who reports that "The team is looking at either Dion Jordan or one of the offensive tackles with the second pick. No surprise there. If they trade down I am told the player they like is Ezekiel Ansah."
April 18: Although many pundits have linked the Jaguars to West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, it appears that the team has also shown interest in another of the 2013 NFL draft's top prospects at the position.
Syracuse signal-caller Ryan Nassib, while appearing on WGR-Radio, told The Howard Simon Show that the Jaguars are among the teams that have "shown the most interest in him."
April 14: Ryan O' Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports that while the Jaguars have had any number of prospects in for visits, their search for the player they intend to choose has narrowed considerably, with general manager David Caldwell stating that “We’re pretty close — it’s down to two people.”
April 10: The Jaguars are kicking the tires on a number of players this year, and it now appears that those players include one of the NFL draft's top tackle prospects.
Aaron Wilson of Scout.com tweeted Wednesday that the Jaguars have set up a visit with Oklahoma's Lane Johnson, widely considered the draft's third-best prospect at his position behind Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M and Central Michigan's Eric Fisher.
Johnson isn't the only player visiting Jacksonville Wednesday, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown and Georgia cornerback Sanders Commings are also set to meet with the Jaguars.
April 5: The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't really been linked to the top two offensive tackles in this year's NFL draft class, but that doesn't mean the team isn't looking to get better up front.
As Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported last week, the Jaguars hosted Syracuse offensive tackle Justin Pugh, who was a second-team All Big East selection in 2012, for a visit on Friday.
That was only the latest in a long list of players that the Jags have visited with this offseason, according to Draftace.com.
That list features many of this year's top prospects, and it certainly appears that the Jaguars are doing their due diligence where this year's draft is concerned.
