JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, which is now two weeks away. Though the roster has improved since general manager David Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley took over in January 2013, there are still a lot of holes to fill.

The top needs remain a quarterback and a pass-rusher, but adding a big-play receiver or elite offensive lineman aren't ridiculous options for the Jaguars with their first pick.

ESPN Insider draft analyst Todd McShay's latest mock draft Insider lists the picks he would make if he were the GM of each team. It's not a projection of what teams will do. McShay makes an interesting choice for the Jaguars.

The Titans pick 11th in the first round of the NFL draft. Their biggest position of need, running back, doesn’t have a consensus first-rounder and they won’t be taking one in the first round.

That leaves the team options at a ton of other spots with no glaring need.

Todd McShay’s newest mock draft Insider isn’t based on what he thinks will happen, but what he would do for each team if he were making its pick.

Mosley, the top-rated inside linebacker, going to the Ravens. In his fourth mock, Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin went to the Ravens.

The prevailing thought over the past few weeks -- months, really -- is that the New York Jets will select a wide receiver in the first round. While it's still considered the position most likely to be addressed with the 18th pick, the possibility isn't as strong as it was before free agency. Cornerback is right there, too.

The Jets have paid little attention to their suspect secondary, making only one move: They replaced cornerback Antonio Cromartie (cut) with journeyman Dimitri Patterson, who signed a one-year contract. In other words, they still need a long-term answer to play alongside Dee Milliner.

If they stay where they are in next month’s NFL draft, a lot will have happened by the time the Denver Broncos are on the clock with the 31st pick of the first round. There will be some trades above them and a few surprises, no matter how many times they think they have run the possible scenarios.

But the strength of the draft board should still offer them the chance to pick the best player available at what is also a position of need. That’s certainly the case in ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay’s latest mock draft.
