According to Scout.com NFL Expert Chris Steuber, the Jaguars scouts will be attending the University of Washington-Arizona game, the Oregon-UCLA game, the Georgia-Tennessee game, and the Miami (OH)-Northwestern game. Here are some of the draft eligible prospects that they will be looking at.
Washington vs Arizona
Rob Gronkowski (JR) - impressive TE prospect who is a big target in the passing game and an adequate blocker; could be a 2nd round pick
Devin Ross (SR) - a productive corner who should be a late round pick
Cam Nelson (SR) - good size strong safety likely a late round pick
Jake Locker (JR) - many believe Locker will stay in school, but he's quickly climbing up the draft boards under Sarkisian. He could wind up a late 1st to early 2nd round pick this year
Ben Ossai (SR) - a pure right tackle at the NFL level Ossai is a mauler. He's a projected 4-5th round pick
Daniel Te'O-Nesheim (SR) - a productive DE who's netted 26.5 TFL and 16.5 sacks in his first 2 seasons at DE; projected 4-5th rounder. Possible 3-4 rush backer or 4-3 edge rusher at the NFL level
Cameron Elisara (JR) - an undersized DT will likely make the move to 3-4 end in the NFL
Oregon vs UCLA
Korey Bosworth (SR) - currently plays defensive end as a speed rusher, but played linebacker his first 2 years. Projects to a 3-4 outside linebacker
Kyle Bosworth (SR) - twin brother of Korey, currently plays outside linebacker and like his brother is a projected 3-4 outside linebacker, both are later round prospects
Micah Kia (SR) - Offensive tackle who will kick inside to guard at the NFL level, projected later round/FA
Brian Price (JR) - projected early round defensive tackle, had 14.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks as a sophomore
Reggie Carter (SR) - active linebacker who can play all 3 spots, mid-round pick
Alterraun Verner (SR) - Verner is a playmaking corner on the Bruin defense. He might need to add a little bit of weight as hes not a burner to begin with, and could possibly make the move to FS in the NFL.
Ryan Moya (SR) - Moya is a prototypical H-back tight end who can double as a quasi-fullback on teams who don't want to keep a traditional fullback. Late round pick
Will Tukaufu (SR) - plays DE but will project to a 3-4 defensive end at the NFL level. had 17.5 TFL and 7.5 sacks his junior season, projected 4-5th round.
Walter Thurmond III (SR) - Thurmond is a playmaking defensive back for the Ducks. He currently projects as a 3-4th round pick and likely plays the nickel position in the NFL
Ed Dickson (SR) - Dickson is a pass catching TE for the Ducks who's blown up recently agaisnt Cal. He should remind Jaguar fans of a bigger George Wrighster type tight end. Mid-round pick.
LeGarrette Bount (SR) - would be a short yardage powerback in the NFL and a late round pick, but given his recent troubles, I'd cross him off the Jaguars draft list
Georgia vs Tennessee
Geno Atkins (SR) - projected early round defensive tackle, could possibly kick outside to 3-4 defensive end or put on some weight and play the nose position.
Rennie Curran (JR) - Curran will need to add some weight to his 220lb frame, but he is a fast linebacker who's constantly in the backfield
Reshad Jones (JR) - Jones is a playmaking safety who can play either SS or FS at the NFL level. He's expected to be a Top 20 pick
Kade Weston (SR) - a huge defensive tackle who can take up space, likely a late round pick/FA
Dan Williams (SR) - mid-round defensive tackle
Rico McCoy (SR) - speedy outside linebacker who would be well served to put on some weight, currently projects as a 2nd-3rd rounder
Eric Berry (JR) - not much needs to be said about the best defensive player in the country, he's a top 10 pick, easily
Chris Scott (SR) - Scott is a versatile lineman that can play nearly every spot on the offensive line, at the NFL level he projects to be a back up LT or a LG, C, RG, RT. Should be a mid-round pick
Miami(OH) vs. Northwestern
Really the only player of note is DE Corey Wootton (SR) who Jacksonville will be looking at for the 2nd time. He projects as a 3-4 DE and a late first to 2nd round pick
