Big Sen'Derick has been cut and Roy Miller has been released too. Seeing as Campbell had been given No 93 I guess Tyson Alulau is off too?
To the Steelers on a two year contract.

Here is my third round pick in the mock draft!

Jacksonville Jaguars again need to use this pick to obtain a starter and strengthen the offense. QB Black Bortles still needs better protection and it has been well documented that the Jaguars didn't commend Julius Thomas' blocking game. Another thing that the Jaguars struggled with in 2016 is touchdowns, both rushing and receiving. Julius Thomas wasn't the touchdown machine that he was in Denver and Allen Robinson & Allen Hurns didn't have the same kind of year in 2016, compared to 2015 when it came to touchdowns. I love the wide receiver trio of Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marquise Lee, but at times the offense has been too predictable, which is why I drafted RB Leonard Fournette and a new starting Tight End can help eradicate how predictable the team has been.

With TE Julius Thomas heading to Miami Dolphins, the starting Tight End position is up for grabs. Marcedes Lewis shows glimpses of why he was once a pro-bowler, but he doesn't gain many receptions, becomes injured and at 32 years old, isn't the long term soloution.
TE's Ben Koyac and Neal Sterling, both drafted in 2015 have only a small sample of game time, they will add depth and competition to Tight End position, but I wouldn't take either of them as the week 1 starter as they still need to prove themselves.

A lot of the Tight Ends in this class, have been mentioned as possibly playing out wide, or playing in the slot and receive glowing reviews about how good they are at receiving the ball. I would have taken Evan Engram, who went two picks ago, because he would be a steal for the 3rd round. I think with Adam Shaheen what the Jacksonville Jaguars will receive is a more well-rounded Tight End and ticks all the boxes in what I feel the starting Jacksonville Jaguars Tight End needs to be. At 6ft6 and 278lbs, he is one of the biggest Tight Ends. He can block, which with the current Jacksonville Jaguars Offensive Line is a requirement, he is still athletic enough to receive the ball regularly and will be an end zone threat.

RODERICK JOHNSON, Offensive Tackle, Florida State



The Jacksonville Jaguars really need improvement on the offensive line, as I have mentioned in my previous three 'offensive' picks. I have already added Dion Dawkins in the second round as a guard and Leonard Fournette as a running back, who will need a good offensive line.

This pick was accumulated after picking up a later second round pick in a trade, where I picked Dion Dawkins later in the second round, rather than at the top. So from Jacksonville Jaguars 2nd round pick, they have acquired two offensive line players, Dion Dawkins and Roderick Johnson.

Roderick Johnson appears to have had an incredible 2015 season, but fell short of expectations in 2016. With Branden Albert and Jeremy Parnell as the Jaguars offensive tackles, there is no rush for Johnson to be a week 1 starter, so he has the time to recover his previous form. Lucky to have fallen to the end of the third round in my opinion, in a position of need and possibly the best player available.
I'd like to hear your opinions please.

I like him, as you said previously our O-line is in desperate need of an upgrade.

And you can never have enough former 'noles on the team either
