Mock Draft Tracker: Analysts strong on Kinlaw, Brown

Jaguars
03 Apr 2020, 04:06 GMT+10

JACKSONVILLE - Javon Kinlaw or Derrick Brown.

Derrick Brown or Javon Kinlaw.

For the last several weeks - longer, even - those two players have been among the most popular selections for the Jaguars among analysts mocking the 2020 NFL Draft.

New week, same story.

Brown, a defensive tackle from Auburn University, and Kinlaw - a defensive tackle from South Carolina - are the draft's consensus two top-rated players at their position. This week, they were again the most popular selections for the Jaguars at No. 9 overall in the 10th jaguars.com mock draft tracker

Three analysts projected Kinlaw to the Jaguars at No. 9: Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, Chad Reuter of NFL Media and Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football. Kevin Hanson of Sports Illustrated projected Kinlaw to the Jaguars at No. 14 after a Jaguars trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"He's a dominant player with the athleticism, power and body type to be a starter as a 3-4 end or 4-3 tackle," Miller wrote of Kinlaw.

Tom Fornelli of CBSSports.com, NFL Network analytics expert Cynthia Frelund and Luke Easterling of USA Today projected Brown to the Jaguars at No. 9 overall.

"A rare athlete for his size, Brown is a dominant force who can wreck opposing offenses all by himself," Easterling wrote.

Former Jaguars running back and NFL.com analyst Maurice Jones Drew projected Ohio State cornerback Jeff Okudah to the Jaguars. Okudah is widely considered the top cornerback in the class, and often has been projected as a Top 5 selection.

"He'll give receivers within the division fits with his great feet, patient play and ability to perform well in man or zone coverage," Jones-Drew wrote.

Other players projected to the Jaguars at No. 9 in this week's tracker: Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert, Louisville offensive tackle Mekhi Becton and Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson.

"Becton is a left tackle who will bookend 2019 second-rounder Jawaan Taylor on the offensive line," Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com wrote.

The Jaguars also hold the No. 20 selection in Round 1. Projections there this week: Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson, Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray, Southern California offensive tackle Austin Jackson, Louisiana State wide receiver Justin Jefferson, Alabama defensive tackle Raekwon Davis, Alabama safety Xavier McKinney, Utah State quarterback Jordan Love, Louisiana State cornerback Kristian Fulton, Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs and Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet.

"Worried about a team like the Patriots who may want Love, the Jaguars move up three spots to get their franchise quarterback after giving up on Nick Foles following a forgettable 2019 season," Wilson wrote, with Kevin Hanson of Sports Illustrated writing, "The younger brother of Bills receiver Stefon Diggs, Diggs has an elite combination of size and length and the former receiver has outstanding ball skills."
