Javon Kinlaw -- Defensive Tackle, South Carolina

No interior defensive lineman had a bigger wingspan or longer arms than Kinlaw.

He is moving up the draft boards like he moved the offensive lines, with a physical ferocity. In fact, some scouts prefer him over Derrick Brown of Auburn. If that Jaguars want him at nine, he can probably be the choice.

Andrew Thomas -- Offensive Tackle, Georgia

Andrew Thomas is NFL ready, but he is competing with Tristan Wirfs, Mekhi Becton and Jedrick Wills for being the first offensive tackle off the board.

He only allowed 9 QB pressures and he is rated as the best offensive tackle in the draft, according to Pro Football Focus last season.

C.J. Henderson -- Cornerback, Florida

Next to Jeff Okudah, Henderson is the highest-rated cornerback on the board by almost all the scouts, GMs and coaches.

Despite an ankle injury this past season, he turned in an impressive combine performance and the Jaguars are almost certain to take a cornerback with pick 9, 20 or 42.

Derrick Brown -- Defensive Tackle, Auburn

There are so only so many talented big men who play football and Brown fits the bill. He is 6′5″ 326 lbs and has the athletic skills of a dancing bear on the field.

This should excite the Jaguars: Brown’s snap quickness allows him to muddy the running lanes by resetting the line of scrimmage.

Jeff Okudah -- Cornerback, Ohio State

Okudah is the 2020 version of Jalen Ramsey on the field.

At 6′1″ 2-5 lbs, Okudah has the size scouts love, but even better he’s running a 40 in 4.48 seconds.

Terms like well refined, deliberate tacklers who comes downhill and other-wordly foot quickness are used when describing him. Although he will probably be gone before the Jaguars pick, he should be on their mind.

Jerry Jeudy -- Wide Reciever, Alabama

To say Jeudy is explosive is an understatement.

24 touchdowns in the last two years at Alabama and that is with 3 other big-time wide receivers for their touches.

He has had 145 receptions over the last two seasons combined and averaged more than 19 yards a catch with Alabama.
