2014 NFL Draft: 5 Late-Round Sleepers the Jacksonville Jaguars Should Target

Jacksonville Jaguars - 2014 NFL Draft
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars would have been the worst team in the NFL last season if it was not for a monumental collapse by fellow AFC South members, the Houston Texans. Jacksonville finished the season with just four wins. One was over the Tennessee Titans, another was over the Cleveland Browns and two were over the Texans.

In the 2014 NFL draft, Jacksonville needs players all over the field. They need a quarterback, who they are likely to select with the No. 3 overall pick, and they also need offensive linemen that can guard him.

The good news for the Jaguars is that they showed a couple signs of life last season. Their young CBs and receivers played extremely well, and Marcedes Lewis looked really good at tight end when he was able to play. They may be considered one of the worst teams in the NFL, but at least they continue to get better.

However, Jacksonville still has a lot of work to do, and any player selected late in the draft has the potential to become a starter. Here are five late-round sleepers in the 2014 NFL Draft that could help the Jaguars. Feel free to leave a comment in the section below if you think of a player not on this list that Jacksonville should take a look at late in the draft.

No. 5 DT Maurice Couch – Tennessee

Couch doesn't get much credit because of the coaching turmoil that surrounded Tennessee in his time there, but this isn't a player you want to pass up on in the seventh round unless you're sure he's going to free agency.

No. 4 DE Chaz Sutton – South Carolina

Sutton took a back seat to the stardom of Jadeveon Clowney, but he's very experienced and could be a late asset for the Jaguars, who need as much depth as they can get.

No. 3 OG Ryan Groy – Wisconsin

The huge guard can block by his size alone. He could be a pick that gets some playing time on obvious rushing downs.

No. 2 OT Cornelius Lucas – Kansas State

At 6-foot-8, 316 pounds Lucas is huge. With some training he could become a definite asset for Jacksonville.

No. 1 DE Larry Webster – Bloomberg

Webster ran the second fastest 40-yard dash at the combine and has the size to make an impact for almost any NFL team. The NFL is in his future.
