RTC: QB and DE in mock drafts

By Michael DiRocco

Chalk up another NFL analyst who believes the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to draft a quarterback with their first pick.

NFL.com's Charles Davis released his mock draft 1.0 on Thursday and he has the Jaguars selecting quarterback Johnny Manziel with the third overall pick.

Davis' mock draft came out the same day that ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. released his mock draft 1.0. Kiper, however, had the Jaguars bypassing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (he had Manziel going No. 1 overall to Houston) and taking defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

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

Here's the final list of underclassmen who have declared for the draft.

If the Jaguars are indeed going defense in the first round and taking a quarterback later in the draft, one name to watch is Jimmy Garappolo. He has separated himself from the five other quarterbacks during practices this week for the East-West Shrine Game, writes ESPN's Steve Muench.

Jaguars players were in line with the results of an anonymous NFL Nation confidential survey that named Peyton Manning as the most respected player in the NFL and the player with which you'd most like to start a franchise.
