After a fun little surprise with the 6th pick of the 2012 BTSC Community Mock Draft, we've now got one that seems to be a bit more predictable with the 7th pick! Thanks go to Ben Balesverger for the work. Next up: Miami Dolphins, and they'll be appropriately represented by MiamiSteelersFan. -barnerburner-


I have spent some time watching mock drafts and the seventh pick for the Jaguars. The first "concern" for many Jaguars fans is that the player the FO picks doesn´t fall into the category of a "reach", in other words the player chosen deserves the pick "allocated" talent mostly in the minds of the press, tv etc.

In this case, the Jaguars have several primary options:
1.- Quinton Coples: a UNC pass rusher
2.- Trent Richardson: a Bama RB in that case not so necesary as MoJo still is in great shape
3.- Michael Floyd: kinda reminds me of when the Steelers drafted Plaxico

To a lesser degree, the boards take Fletcher Cox/Chandler Jones - both Jason Pierre-Paul type of player or a 4-3 DE.

Other options are to trade down and get more picks, for example, with Miami if they want Tannehill so bad
or with a team that wants to go up and give a great ransom for the 7th pick.

I've got to go with logic and the BPA with need. I like the player´s work ethic and focus, in addition to the ferocity he has on the field.

With the 7th pick overall, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Quinton Coples, DE/OLB, North Carolina Tar Heels.
