One of the big three quarterbacks or Jadeveon Clowney for the Jaguars at No. 3 in the upcoming NFL draft.

That's the general assumption of what the Jaguars will do, but the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon writes that there is a possible scenario in which the Jaguars take receiver Sammy Watkins.

How does that unfold? Say the Jaguars determine only one of the big three quarterbacks -- Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles -- is worth taking that high in the first round. Say that player and Clowney are gone after the first two picks. What do the Jaguars do? Take one of the offensive tackles? Khalil Mack? Trade down?

One option is Watkins, who has established himself as the best receiver in the draft and would give the Jaguars the big-time playmaker they don't have.

"What I love doing is dominating defenses," Watkins said. "I think I can run by just about anybody. That's my objective; that's my motive."

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our Reading the Coverage feature:

The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran writes that head coach Gus Bradley told Manziel, Bridgewater and Bortles that the team would be spending more time with them over the coming months.

The head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance expects the NFL to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field. This possibility was first mentioned back in November. Here's a story I did then on Jaguars players' reaction to the possible new rule.

Dee Ford told SiriusXM radio on Sunday that he's better than Clowney and said the former South Carolina standout plays "like a blind dog in a meat market." The Jaguars really liked Ford at the Senior Bowl and he won MVP honors.
