Jaguars selected Texas A&M LT Luke Joeckel with the No. 2 overall pick.
The Jaguars stuck to their board despite the presence of 2009 first-rounder Eugene Monroe at left tackle. With Monroe going into the final year of his contract, Joeckel will almost certainly man right tackle as a rookie. Joeckel (6-6, 306) started all 37 games of his college career at left tackle, protecting Heisman winner Johnny Manziel's blindside as a junior before turning pro. Joeckel permitted two sacks and a dozen hurries in 2012, and was flagged for four penalties. At the Combine, Joeckel measured in with massive arms (34 1/4") and 10 1/8-inch hands, which will pay dividends when shielding Blaine Gabbert from the J.J. Watts of the world.

The "feeling is" Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan T Eric Fisher will be the first two picks on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

We understand the pick for the Chiefs, since they will likely deal Branden Albert, but the remaining tackle must be much higher than other prospects on the Jaguars board since current left tackle Eugene Monroe is the team's best player. We would select Dion Jordan in that spot. Schefter's tweet was not very specific, however, and a team could trade up into the second slot.

One NFL scout told Bob McGinn that Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel is "like Matt Kalil's double."

"He's a great athlete with great technique," the same scout said. "The only negative I have is he's not a powerful person. He gets pushed at times. I worry about him on the power." Another scout added "Joeckel comes from a well-to-do family so he doesn't have that hunger that a lot of people have."

Sources told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora the "reality is" Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel will be the No. 1 pick.

La Canfora notes the Dolphins remain interested in trading for Branden Albert and the team would then target a corner if that deal gets done. There remains to be buzz around Eric Fisher possibly being that top pick, along with murmurs of Dion Jordan and Star Lotulelei.

CBS' Mike Freeman reports the Kansas City Chiefs are "begging" to trade the No. 1 pick.

"They are basically advertising this, I'm told, in neon lights. Like a special at Macy's. One scout called it "begging." The Chiefs aren't giving the pick away but they are letting many people know the pick can be had," Freeman wrote. This comes as little surprise considering there's varying opinions on who is the top player in the draft. Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel seems to be the most likely selection but it's debatable if he's even the top player at his position, let alone the draft.

SI's Peter King does not see the Chiefs selecting anyone other than Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel or Central Michigan T Eric Fisher at pick No. 1.

"Regardless whether Albert's moved or not, I don't see them doing anything but taking tackles Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher first," King writes. Dion Jordan and Star Lotulelei have been mentioned in that slot in the last week or so, but the uncertainty around Branden Albert's future with the team only grows the speculation that the pick will be a tackle.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah gave Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan T Eric Fisher the same grade as Matt Kalil.

Jeremiah did add that he would rank Kalil above both, however. Kalil put forward an excellent rookie campaign and allowed the Vikings to shuffle their offensive line and improve at multiple spots. Expect both Fisher and Joeckel to be top five selections.

Pro Football Weekly's Nolan Nawrocki writes Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel is a "can't-miss" prospect.

"A can’t-miss, high-floor, high-reward pick whose best football is ahead of him," Nawrocki wrote. He summarized the prospect as follows, "A dependable, highly skilled, pass-blocking technician, Joeckel grades out as well as anyone in this year’s draft class and has a rare makeup that will drive him to be successful. A scheme-versatile, Day-One starter capable of stepping into the starting lineup immediately and safeguarding a franchise quarterback for the next decade-plus."

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran reports the Jacksonville Jaguars will host Texas A&M Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan OT Eric Fisher.

The Jaguars have been rumored to be considering offensive tackles in the past, so this may confirm their interest. Fisher is a better prospect than Joeckel because he has more upside and is a better athlete, but Joeckel's the better technician right now. He's a good player from snap to snap, as NFL Films' Greg Cosell once noted, and that is a big reason why he could go No. 1 overall to the Kansas City Chiefs.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher reports Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel will meet with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Mosher tweets he's unsure when the workout will take place, other than in the next seven days. He also said that he's unsure whether it's a private workout or simply a visit. Joeckel is considered the favorite to be selected No. 1 in the draft by the Kansas City Chiefs but if he does not go first overall, there's a chance he slips to the Eagles.

Contrary to reports, Russ Lande of the National Football Post cites sources that tell him the Chiefs are deciding between Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher, and Dion Jordan with the No. 1 pick.

Prior reports stated that the Chiefs were considering four players with the top pick, but Lande believes only three are in serious contention. Joeckel and Fisher are expected, but Jordan is a bit of an odd man out, since the Chiefs already have Tamba Hali and Justin Houston as their edge pass rushers. However, those on the outside always scream for the "best player available" approach, and Jordan might be that.
Wed, Apr 3, 2013 09:35:00 AM's Albert Breer reports the Kansas City Chiefs have narrowed down their choices for the No. 1 overall selection to four.

Breer adds that the team will decide on who will be the selection four days before the draft, if the pick is not traded. It's been widely assumed that Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel will be the top selection later this month but apparently that's not as cemented in stone as many say. The team is meeting with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith for two days.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes Texas A&M T Luke Joeckel's best attribute is his consistency play after play.

"To me the strength of his game is repetitive execution, snap after snap, not elite athleticism and movement," Cosell said. "He's not unathletic, but I think he does everything right almost every snap. I think he's a smoother mover than Jake Long... but I don't think he's as naturally fluid as Ryan Clady." Joeckel appears to be the odds on favorite for the No. 1 selection.

"All signs point toward the Chiefs selecting" Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel, according to NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah.

It certainly appears to be headed in that direction. According to a prior report, the Chiefs will work out Geno Smith and Dee Milliner then start forming their board. Keep in mind, one AFC general manager called Joeckel "perfect." We don't share that sentiment, but the left tackle is a great prospect.

National Football Post's Dan Pompei was told by an AFC general manager that Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel is "perfect".

"His angles are so good," the AFC general manager said. "Everything is perfect with him. He’s technically smooth. He’s incredibly instinctive, and sometimes that passes people by." Joeckel has very few holes in his game, as the only concern is that sometimes he overextends for the speed rush. However, he is still considered the favorite to go No. 1 overall.
