The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and with the new brain trust of head coach Urban Meyer and general manager Trent Baalke, they will undoubtedly make one of the most impactful quarterback acquisitions of any team in the NFL.

The Jaguars’ roster is not exactly a blank canvas, but unlike pretty much every other team in the NFL, Jacksonville has the benefit of knowing exactly what is going to be happening with their top draft choice and they can sort of work backwards from that.

What other needs does this team need to address early on in the 2021 NFL Draft? How will they prioritize certain position groups with Meyer and Baalke leading the way?

Here is a four-round mock draft for the Jacksonville Jaguars taking a look at a scenario involving their top seven picks with no trades.

There is no surprise here.

If the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to go any direction besides Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick, it would be an absolute shock to everybody.

Lawrence has been a projected number one NFL Draft pick since he was in high school. He managed to meet and exceed lofty expectations at Clemson in three years as a starter, leading the Tigers to a national title in 2019 against Alabama.

Lawrence and the Tigers fell prey to LSU and Ohio State in the College Football Playoff these past two seasons, but there is no doubt about his ability as a pocket passer and game-changer with his ability to read defenses, make difficult plays under pressure, and make plays with his legs.

The selection of Trevor Lawrence could be a franchise-altering pick for the Jaguars, who have largely been in QB purgatory for the entirety of the franchise’s existence (with all due respect to Mark Brunell, shoutout to all 90s kids).

How fast can Lawrence turn this ship around? That remains to be seen, but expectations will be high.
