Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Jacksonville Jaguars Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Jacksonville Jaguars from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Jaguars:

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (3/9)

24. Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

This pick is to better protect Trevor Lawrence and to fill in the spot likely vacated by impending free agent Jawaan Taylor.

ESPN - Todd McShay (3/7)

24. Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

If the Jaguars let Jawaan Taylor leave in free agency, Wright could be the replacement at right tackle opposite Cam Robinson. He plays with great balance and is outstanding as a run blocker. At 6-5 and 333 pounds, he ran a 5.01 in the 40-yard dash, showing his quicks. I liked what I saw at the Senior Bowl, too. Wright would help keep quarterback Trevor Lawrence upright and open up seams for running back Travis Etienne Jr. as the Jaguars continue to emerge as a player in the AFC. He allowed just one sack in 2022.

NFL.com - Lance Zierlein (3/7)

24. Calijah Kancey, IDL, Pittsburgh

Jacksonville adds one of the most disruptive pass rushers in the draft. Kancey's an undersized -- but explosive -- interior lineman with rare mismatch quickness inside.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (3/7)

24. Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia

At 264 pounds with 34.5-inch arms and 11-inch hands, Washington takes pride in being a sixth offensive lineman as a blocker. His 40-yard dash (4.64) and short shuttle (4.08) also confirmed his freaky athleticism at that size. Despite slapping the franchise tag on Evan Engram, the Jaguars will be in the tight end market this offseason.

USA Today - Nate Davis (3/7)

24. Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia

The Jags' top three tight ends are unsigned, though Evan Engram may have the franchise tag coming his way. Regardless, Washington would be an intriguing complement and — at 6-7, 264 pounds with 4.64 speed — the imposing red-zone target Jacksonville doesn't currently have. (For further proof, check out Washington's one-handed stab on the boundary during Saturday's workout.) He isn't likely to provide Engram-level receiving production overall, but Washington brings serious blocking ability to the table — something Engram doesn't.

The 33rd Team (3/7)

24. Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Michael Mayer will fit nicely in this offense. He will be productive in the passing and running games for the Jaguars. Mayer ran a 4.70-second 40 at 249 pounds. He has the ball skills and body control to beat linebackers in the passing game.

Bleacher Report (3/7)

24. Darnell Wright, OT, Tennessee

The Jacksonville Jaguars faced a difficult decision and made an interesting choice.

The team had two major pending free agents in tight end Evan Engram and right tackle Jawaan Taylor. They'll likely pay both. But we know that Engram will be with the team this fall after the organization announced it placed the franchise tag on its third-leading receiver.

Taylor will be a top free agent once the new league year officially begins. There's no reason for him not to see what the market dictates. The Jaguars, meanwhile, can look elsewhere to address the position. Maybe Walker Little will take over the spot. Or, the team can invest in the class' top-ranked right tackle prospect in Tennessee's Darnell Wright.

"If the Jaguars want a bigger, more powerful option than Little, Wright is the right choice," Thorn posited. "At 6'5", 333 pounds, Wright has good movement skills and immense power that would pair exceptionally well with right guard Brandon Scherff, thus giving Jacksonville a dynamic duo on the right side in the running game and an ultra-physical presence in pass protection."

The decision comes down to identity. Jacksonville already has some of the pieces in place to consistently control the point of attack. Wright could be the piece to complete the puzzle.

Touchdown Wire - Doug Farrar (3/6)

24. Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

There are times when it's tough to come up with the right NFL comparison for a draft prospect. This is not the case with Kincaid, whose ability to travel open through zones, beat up defenders after the catch, and participate with full credibility in Y-iso looks brings a young Travis Kelce to mind without too much work. The Jaguars have indicated that they intend to bring Evan Engram back for 2023, but Doug Pederson's offense was quite effective in two-tight ends sets last season, and nobody on that squad had Kincaid's skill set. We are including Engram in that qualifier.

Los Angeles Times - Sam Farmer (3/4)

24. Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

If he lasts this long, Kincaid would be a capable replacement for Evan Engram, whom the Jaguars have not resigned.
