The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the most intriguing players at the top of the 2013 NFL Draft. The team could very well draft a wide range of players at different positions including defensive end, defensive tackle, offensive tackle and even quarterback. While there are a lot of options for Jacksonville, a majority of folks have had Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan slated in the No. 2 spot.
One of those people that consistently mocked Jordan to the Jags is former NFL scout and NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah.
Jeremiah was one of the first to slot Jordan in the second spot, but he is now hearing from NFL personnel members that the belief around the league is that Jacksonville will look to draft an offensive tackle in that spot.
I’ve had Dion Jordan going to JAX for a long time. However, I’ve talked to several GM’s/Personnel Directors that expect JAX to take an OT

If the Jaguars do go offensive tackle, it would likely be Eric Fisher, with all signs pointing to the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Luke Joeckel in the top spot.
It would be a questionable more for the Jaguars, because Fisher would play right tackle for the team with Eugene Monroe at left tackle. Teams don’t usually select right tackles high in the draft, but the Jaguars aren’t your ordinary team.
Remember, they selected a punter in the third-round just last year.
It will be interesting to see what direction the Jaguars go with the first pick and it could certainly dictate the direction the draft goes. We will get all of these answers on Thursday night.
