Todd McShay’s newest mock draft has him sharing three scenarios for each team.

Here we share the first of those and reflect on it. You can see the rest in McShay’s Insider file Insider. (Don Banks of SI has a new mock draft out today as well.)

2) Jacksonville Jaguars

Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon

McShay’s scenario one: The Jags would be perfectly content to stay home and take Jordan, whose rare combination of length and versatility against the pass make him a perfect fit for the Leo position in Jacksonville's new defensive scheme.

My thought: Jordan is becoming an increasingly popular choice for the Jaguars at No. 2. Recovery from a shoulder problem could mean he’s not on the field until after camp starts. If he’s the right guy, you have to be patient with him.

10) Tennessee Titans

Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

McShay’s scenario one: The Titans need a player along the defensive front who can disrupt and make life easier for defensive ends Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan, and getting Floyd here would be a good value.

My thought: I just heard Greg Cosell of NFL Films rave about Floyd. A defensive tackle who can be a constant headache can have a positive trickle-down effect on everyone on the defense.

24) Indianapolis Colts

D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston

McShay’s scenario one: The Colts play man-cover schemes, and Hayden's smooth movement skills and ability to manufacture turnovers would be a solid fit.

My thought: Hayden’s story is a phenomenal one. He showed incredible toughness with a great comeback. If Chuck Pagano, with a defensive back background, likes him, huge opportunity would await.

27) Houston Texans

Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State

McShay’s scenario one: The Texans could stand to get an upgrade over Derek Newton at right tackle, and Watson's athleticism and movement skills would be a perfect fit in their zone-blocking scheme.

My thought: They are due to draft offense in the first round. The last guy they took on offense was left tackle Duane Brown in 2008, and before that it was Andre Johnson in 2003.
