The Jags could always draft a WR in the 2nd round (Brandon Tate-NC or Robiskie's kid-Ohio St).
I do like the idea of trading back if Orakpo and the 4 tackles are gone. Then we could pick the best available between OLB, DE, and OL and possibly DB (smoot has been slipping and I wouldn't argue with selecting Malcolm Jenkins). We need at least two guys that can come in and play and I think one from each side of the ball is a good idea. And as far as discussing names, I'm not going to speculate. I'd simply go with the best available but I would trade back if at all possible.

The mock draft of Ourlads Scouting Services has Oher lasting until #16 to San Diego.

They have Washington taking Sanchez.

It may would be a reach to draft Mack at that spot, but having Mack in our line will upgrade the O-line.. Which is why I will not think that drafting Mack is a reach.. Beside upgrading our O-line with C, it would be perfect chance for Heyer to show whether if he can be successful this season or not.. I believe Heyer would be successful, he's getting enriched with experiences.. Regardless, I still want us to draft an OT..

And I'm curious to see why you don't like Oher?
I've heard/read too much about his immaturity, that he's been babied/coddled thoughout his football life and there are some questions about how he'll respond to being 'pushed' by tough coaching. With Bugel and Zorn being the brutally honest type I am concerned that he may not have the mental toughness to thrive.

Coupling that with the fact that we are asking him to flip sides and his football intelligence has come into question just spells bust to me.

Decent analysis about the top 5 tackles in the draft, NFL Draft - NFL draft preview and analysis from Pro Football Weekly.

I'd be surprised if the Bills take an OT at 11
