2011 NFL Mock Draft: Predicting All 7 Rounds for Jacksonville Jaguars
At 8-8, the Jacksonville Jaguars just barely missed the playoffs last season. With this said, the Jaguars lost a lot of games, and they need some help in the NFL Draft.
Most of this help will come from picks on defense in the draft; however, the Jaguars need help on both sides of the ball.
Although the Jaguars have some young talent on their team, they need to have a good draft so they can compete and make it to the playoffs in the 2011 season.
Round 1: QB Jake Locker, Washington

Although the Jacksonville Jaguars need a lot of help on defense, they absolutely need a quarterback. Therefore, they will go with Jake Locker with the 16th pick in the draft.
Locker threw for over 2000 yards and 17 touchdowns last season with the Huskies. He has a good arm and a good athletic build.
Locker is a running threat, but he looks to throw the ball first.
Although Locker's accuracy is in question, the Jaguars need a franchise quarterback and Jake Locker is their man.
Round 2: SS Ahmad Black, Florida

Ahmad Black would help the Jaguars out in their defensive struggles in the backfield.
Black has great speed for his position and although he only stands at 5'5", he is very physical, which helps him with tackling. Although Black is capable of playing man to man, he is much better in a zone-type defense.
Black's size is in question; however, bulking up some in the next level should help him out.
Round 3: DE Jeremy Beal, Oklahoma

Jeremy Beal is a defensive lineman, who puts a lot of pressure on quarterbacks. Beal has great size and bulk and is dominant at pass rushing.
Beal has a lot of talent, and the Jacksonville Jaguars can solve their defensive lineman struggles with picking him in the third round.
Round 4: CB Shareece Wright, USC

Shareece Wright has good speed and size for his position. Not to mention, he is very athletic.
Wright is good at man coverage; however, he is a lot better at a zone coverage.
With Wright's speed, he can burst out to the quarterback or make a good play on the ball.
Round 4: FS Jaiquawn Jarrett, Temple
Jaiquawn Jarrett is a very physical player and an even better rush defender. Jarrett also has great athleticism, and he plays good in-zone coverage.
To perform at the next level, though, Jarrett needs to bulk up and learn how to play man coverage.
Round 5: WR Greg Salas, Hawaii
Greg Salas has great size and is very athletic. Salas also has great hands, and he gets a lot of yards after the catch.
The only thing Salas is lacking is speed, which is pretty crucial at the wide receiver position, although he is average in this department.
Other than Greg Salas' speed, he has everything going for him, and he will make a great wide receiver at the next level.
Round 6: DT Sione Fua, Standford

Sione Fua is very good at blocking, although he needs to put on some more weight. His blocking skills allow linebackers to make plays.
Fua is not very athletic, and he also is lacking in pass rushing.
However, put this man in a 3-4 zone and he will have some success.
