NEW YORK, NY -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have taken Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Joeckel had been projected to go number one in the draft, but the Kansas City shocked the experts by taking Eric Fisher, the offensive tackle out of Central Michigan.

According to CBS Sports, Joeckel was a top high school recruit out of Arlington who signed with Texas A & M over Alabama, LSU, and Oklahoma.

He earned All-American honors as a senior.  Joeckel also anchored the offensive line that helped quarterback Johnny Manziel win the Heisman Trophy.

The Miami Dolphins, after trading up with Oakland, took Dion Jordan with the third pick in the draft, a linebacker out of Oregon who some thought would be wearing a Jaguars uniform this fall.

The Philadelphia Eagles, whose head coach is former Oregon coach Chip Kelly, snapped up Lane Johnson, an offensive tackle out of Oklahoma with the fourth pick.

The Detroit Lions went with BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah to round out the top five.

NO NO NO there is ONE person that needed to be picked. AND unless he's picked I see no hope for the Jags.
