8 Players the Jacksonville Jaguars Should Target on Day 2
Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of the most unpredictable NFL draft in recent memory is now behind us, and as expected, it was full of surprises.

The Jacksonville Jaguars played it safe with the No. 2 overall pick by selecting tackle Luke Joeckel from Texas A&M.

Joeckel was general manager David Caldwell's most sought-after player (per AP's Mark Long). He will take over the right tackle role as head coach Gus Bradley reassured (via Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union) Eugene Monroe that he's Jacksonville's starting left tackle.

The Jaguars filled a massive need by drafting Joeckel. The team featured a revolving door of ineffective right tackles last season, and it's now a position they no longer have to worry about.

With hindsight being 20/20, drafting Joeckel looks like the right move for Jacksonville. The franchise has bookend tackles while still being in prime position to get a much-needed playmaker on defense.

The draft is just getting underway as the bulk of the work is still remaining.

As expected, Jacksonville is trying to trade (per Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country) the No. 33 pick.

If the Jaguars don't trade back, they have already said they have "no interest" (via AP's Mark Long) in drafting a quarterback with the top pick of the second round, including West Virginia's Geno Smith.

With all this in mind, here are eight players the Jaguars should target on the second day of the draft.
