• Keon Coleman is a big-bodied threat for the Jaguars: The 6-foot-4 and 215-pound athlete enjoys getting physical with cornerbacks, as he constantly catches passes through contact.

• A new secondary weapon in Jacksonville: Nate Wiggins' 6-foot-2 frame and length allow him to disrupt receivers in the contact window and at the catch point, and he also has above-average athleticism for the position.

As the 2024 NFL Draft nears, our seven-round team mock draft series continues with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Round 1, Pick 17: CB Nate Wiggins, Clemson

Wiggins' 6-foot-2 frame and length allow him to disrupt receivers in the contact window and at the catch point. He also has above-average athleticism for the position. His footwork is quick and controlled, his hips flip fluidly and fast and he has impressive recovery speed. Although Wiggins didn’t have many interceptions, his forced incompletion percentage and awareness prove that he is impactful. The best part about him is he remains confident in both man and zone responsibilities. He has a slender build, and that shows up when tasked with tackling, getting off blocks and handling stronger receivers in their routes.

Round 2, Pick 48: WR Keon Coleman, Florida State

Coleman originally committed to Michigan State as a two-sport athlete before transferring to Florida State in 2023. His evaluation is a test of how much scouts prefer contested-catch receivers to athletic separators. He is an impressive 6-foot-4 and 215-pound athlete who enjoys getting physical with cornerbacks, as he constantly catches passes through contact. While that yields jaw-dropping feats of strength, his lack of separation ability is concerning for the next level — there just aren't a lot of guys who make a living as consistent contested-catch receivers. The ones that do are often some of the best receivers in the league.

Round 3, Pick 96: T Dominick Puni, Kansas

Puni was a no-star recruit and played at Central Missouri for four seasons before transferring to Kansas in 2022, where he played left guard and left tackle. In his first season with the Jayhawks (left guard), Puni displayed bad posture and poor pad level. That made him susceptible to rushers and didn't allow him to really maintain blocks. His posture was better in 2023 (left tackle), and although he was still standing taller than preferred, he was conscious of leverage and dropped his pads more before contact. He also showed a lot more power in 2023, disrupting and displacing defenders. His power best projects to guard.

Round 4, Pick 114: DI Mekhi Wingo, LSU

The smaller Wingo wins on quickness. His stance is low and loaded, and he can explode off the ball. His hands are well placed, which leads to an effective push-pull, his go-to pass-rush move. But his smaller frame and shorter arms make it tough for him to disengage against better offensive linemen. He has his positive moments in run defense, but his bad plays are too far in the wrong direction. When he has good eye discipline against the run and waits for the back to commit to a lane, he can disengage and make contact at the line of scrimmage. Still, too often he guesses the lane. He also has a bad tendency to get turned around at the line.

Round 4, Pick 116: S Sione Vaki, Utah

Vaki is one of the most unique prospects in the 2024 class. He played both sides of the ball (running back, slot receiver and safety) in high school. He was recruited in the 2019 class, so he is an older prospect, but he has only two years of college football experience due to going on a two-year church mission before playing football for Utah. His straight-line explosiveness is impressive. He has some of the best click-and-close pursuit speed of any safety in the class. He also hits like a truck. He brings versatility, with experience in the slot, in the box and at free safety

Round 5, Pick 153: WR Cornelius Johnson, Michigan

Johnson is an experienced receiver prospect, having played 60 games with 44 starts at Michigan. He is a good overall athlete with a decent blend of straight-line speed, acceleration and change of direction. However, his change of direction can be a bit stiff, especially when he gets up to speed. He isn't an imposing blocker, but he is reliable in his positioning and fundamentals, which will help him make an NFL roster on special teams. His separation rates are very high, but that was more due to usage and setup than rare athletic ability. Johnson seems to have more in the tank talent-wise; we just didn't see it in his three years as a starter.

Round 6, Pick 212: S Tyler Owens, Texas Tech

Owens has the prototypical size to play the position in the NFL and tested as an explosive athlete this spring. He will likely take some time to develop in the NFL, though, having played just 961 snaps in his college career.

Round 7, Pick 236: WR Bub Means, Pittsburgh

Means is a vertical receiver who has a good physical profile for a streamlined role (fast, strong, big catch radius for contested opportunities deep). He can be a depth WR4/5 for a team that likes to push the ball vertically.
