After a crazy trade up, we return to something a little more normal.

Get all of look of the whole schedule and previously selected players here.


Last three picks

5. Tampa Bay Logo Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

6. Philadelphia Eagles Logo Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma


Today’s GM is S10Bronco.

With the seventh pick of 2012 Interactive Mock Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select…

7. Jacksonville Jaguars Logo Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

So after failed attempts to trade up and land Justin Blackmon and more failed attempts to trade back. The Jags Select defensive end Melvin Ingram out of South Carolina. As new owner Shahid Khan and new coach Mike Mularkey is an offensive guy both hoping for Blackmon.

Unfortunately it just didn’t happen. As GM, I am more on the defense wins and was torn between Morris Claiborne and Ingram. In the end Ingram gives our defensive line a much needed boost. This South Carolina monster brings a versatility to the defense we are looking for.

Ingram played multiple positions in college and will upgrade the front seven right away, with his quick first step and variety of pass rush moves. As an organization seeing how the Broncos had much success last year with Von Miller. We are hoping Melvin can have a similar impact.

    Chargers GM here. Was eying this guy. Would have traded up if he fell to 10. Time to make other plans!

    Top 5 guys on Mel Kiper’s Big Board:
    Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU (4)
    Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa (7)
    Quinton Coples, DE, UNC (8)
    Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford (9)
    Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College (10)

    Solid pick. The only other realistic option would have been Morris Claiborne. Seventh is kind of a tough spot for the Jaguars.
