Who Will the Jags Choose in Round One?

Senior Bowl practices are complete and the Jaguars had head coach Jack Del Rio and general manager Gene Smith among their legion of personnel in attendance. Find out which players are on the Jaguars radar in the first round.

Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

Kaepernick started off solid at the beginning of the week and improved every day. His throwing motion is less than ideal and it is reminiscent to that of two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger. Kaepernick proved that he could make all the throws and his athleticism is off the charts, as he claims that he was timed at 4.43 in the 40 last spring by the San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks. Don't be surprised if the Jaguars pull the trigger on Kaepernick in round one.

Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State

Although the middle of the first round is usually a bit early for an interior lineman, Rodney Hudson is the most impressive lineman in the country. Hudson's explosiveness would fit right in with the Jaguars run-first philosophy. Hudson could start right away at guard and claims to be able to play center.

Von Miller, OLB/DE, Texas A & M

The Jaguars are likely to play more 3-4 this season, and they will need another rush-backer. Von Miller was ultra-productive as a member of the Aggies and he's the perfect cornerstone of a new defense.

Jake Locker, QB, Washington

The Jaguars need a young answer at quarterback and Jake Locker has all the measurables that any team would desire. He has perfect footwork and mechanics and outstanding athleticism. His inaccuracy and regression during his senior season is certainly a concern and that could keep him on the board when it's time for the Jaguars selection.

Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

The Jaguars need more talent on the defensive line, specifically at defensive end as Derrick Harvey hasn't seemed to work out. Adrian Clayborn had somewhat of a quiet senior season as he drew plenty of double teams allowing teammates Christian Ballard and Karl Klug more success. Clayborn has great athleticism as he could be the three-down defensive end that the Jaguars have been looking for.
