JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has changed his mind.

In his first two mock drafts he had the Houston Texans taking a quarterback. In his third, however, he had them taking linebacker Khalil Mack with the top pick.

But he remains consistent when it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars. As he did in his first two mocks, Kiper predicts they will draft defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 3 pick.

Here's his full mock draftInsider as well as my reaction to his prediction.

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

CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco gives the Jaguars' signing of Chris Clemons a B and the signing of Ziggy Hood a C in his day three grades.

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran examines how the signing of Ziggy Hood and Chris Clemons and the re-signing of Jason Babin impacts the defensive line.

T-U columnist Gene Frenette writes that the signing of Gerhart seems to close the door on the possibility of Maurice Jones-Drew finishing out his career in Jacksonville.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah revisits the first round of the 2003 NFL draft and does a mock re-draft based on what we know about those players today. He said the Jaguars should have taken defensive tackle Kevin Williams instead of quarterback Byron Leftwich.
