ESPN's draft expert now has the Jacksonville Jaguars taking Florida defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. with the third overall pick in his mock 3.0 that was released Thursday morning.

@GulloRob Marcedes is a possibility ($8.2M cap '15) but I don't think anyone else gets released. Poz possibly restructures but that's it.

@Davor_Bozic that's asking for the moon. Just bec Jags have all that $ doesnt automatically mean guys will sign. Other teams pursuing too.

@hach54 Maybe, but it's an awful lot of money and they have so many needs. I think $ better spent elsewhere.
