Jaguars appear to be locked in

I have a tingling it's either Johnathan Allen or Solomon Thomas.  One of those two will fall to us.  There's always a DL who falls because of the defensive schemes of the teams picking early.  My inners really think it's Allen.  It will piss people off who think he's a full time DT but he's like Michael Bennet merged with Richard Seymour.  He can play anywhere.       

It should suprise absoultely no one on the huddle if Allen is the pick , with those shoulder problems he's going to drop a little. I don't believe it will be Thomas , it's most likely going to be Allen, Barnett, Lattimore, or OJ Howard depending on how the chips fall above us. 

I think Fournette and Adams are locks to go above us, with Hooker being almost a lock to go above us as well. 

I don't believe the Panthers would take that big of a risk to draft Ross with his injury history at 8. It just makes too much sense for this type of franchise we all know very well to take a blue chip defensive player unless there's an emergency situation (ex. Cam, Benjamin in recent memory) . 

Hell don't even be surprised if Gettleman picks Reuben Foster it's not beyond him. He loves his linebackers and Dline and Foster is by far and away the best LB in this draft and has been compared to Luke, and we just lost Klien.. Maybe Gettleman tries to make him into an OLB to eventually play with Luke and Shaq once TD retires .

At the end of the day, the Titans and Jets are the wildcards.  Both of those teams could take a variety of guys because they have so many needs.  There is no way in hell Tennessee picks a QB but they need a corner really bad amongst other guys.  They could swing Lattimore earlier than expected.  I think this draft is the most unpredictable at the top in quite some years.  Bunch of skaliwags.

I just hope somehow the Jags pick someone other than fournette , right no it looks like they've solved all their defensive woes in free agency, RB simply makes the most sense and LF7 is the runaway favorite RB of the draft and suits their new coaches' preferences in RB style and build. 

If the Jags don't pick fournette, then i think there's a really high likelihood we do. I'm seeing the Jets being more likely to take Lattimore or whoever's the highest DB on their board.

I said it a while back, but it wouldn't surprise me if they took Dalvin Cook because he is more local than Fournette...

Plus, they have a history of making pretty terrible draft decisions.

They drafted Yeldon 36th overall 2 years ago.  Be weird to essentially admit this early in his career that they effed that pick.  I thought he showed promise and it's definitely not his fault they're bad.  They need OL/QB.  There's not really OL prospects that high but if you put Watson on that team, tell me they're not better off.  Just like last year, are they really going to repeat the whole 'sign every single free agent for 50 mil to make us better and die at the QB position?'  If so, have fun.

The only thing they are locked into is the steady diet of misinformation and trying to gauge the true market for LF.  If a team wants him badly enough the Jags are going to want to get maximum value by telling everyone he's their's at #4.

Just smart business.
