Maurice Jones-Drew Reveals Shocking No. 1 Overall Pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars in His Mock Draft

Since his playing career ended in 2014, Maurice Jones-Drew has been an All-Pro running back, one of the finest players in Jacksonville Jaguars history, and a fantastic NFL commentator. Now, MJD is attempting to forecast the NFL Draft.

Jones-Drew recently attempted his hand at a mock draft for the 2022 selection meeting, channeling his inner Mel Kiper Jr. or Daniel Jeremiah. His parody is particularly notable, because to who he has at the helm.

MJD has a stunning No. 1 overall choice in Georgia defensive lineman Travon Walker, whether he is merely attempting to make a name for himself with a controversial decision or he has inside knowledge of what his previous organization is preparing.

The consensus No. 1 overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft is Aiden Hutchinson.

The greatest names in the draft game all have Michigan defensive end Aiden Hutchison going No. 1 to the Jacksonville Jaguars a month before the 2022 NFL selection. Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay (ESPN), Daniel Jeremiah, Chad Reuter (NFL Network), Pete Prisco, Chris Trapasso (CBS Sports), Nick Baumgardner (The Athletic), and Danny Kelly are among others who have contributed (The Ringer).

For what it’s worth, Adam Fromal, Sportcasting’s in-house Jaguars fan, believes Hutchison will wind up in Duval County.

The pass-rusher for the Wolverines is coming off a strong senior season. According to MGoBlue.com, the Michigan native has 62 tackles, two forced fumbles, and 14 sacks in 2021. Hutchinson’s athleticism was validated in the NFL combine. He weighed 260 pounds and stood 6-foot-7. He ran a 4.47 40-yard sprint and had a 36-inch vertical and a 9-foot-9-inch broad jump.

He also set the quickest times in the 20-yard shuttle and the 3-cone drill at his position (6.73 seconds) (4.15 seconds).

Overall, Hutchison seems to be a high-floor, high-ceiling talent who would compliment Josh Allen on the Jaguars’ defensive line wonderfully.

While Maurice Jones-Drew feels that pairing a defensive lineman alongside Allen, who had 7.5 sacks in 2021, is important, the former Jaguars running back does not believe Hutchinson is the best option.

Jacksonville’s No. 1 overall choice is Georgia’s Travon Walker, according to Maurice Jones-Drew. 

Former Georgia Bulldog defensive end Travon Walker is the No. 1 overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, according to Maurice Jones-Drew, who has been with NFL Media since 2015.  

Walker is a defensive lineman from Thomaston, Georgia, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 272 pounds. Walker produced 37 tackles, six for a loss, and 7.0 sacks in his junior season, according to GeorgiaDogs.com.

He beat Aiden Hutchinson’s 40 speed (4.51 seconds) and broad jump (10-feet, 3-inches) at the combine, but he fell short of the Michigan Wolverine in the vertical (35.5 inches), 3-cone (6.89 seconds), and 20-yard shuttle (4.23 seconds).

In his player profiles, MJD explains why he prefers Walker over Hutchinson (who he has going No. 2 to the Detroit Lions). Jones-Drew had this to say about Walker:

The Jags choose defense with this choice, as general manager Trent Baalke works to secure Cam Robinson to a long-term contract. According to my colleague Bucky Brooks, Walker is coming off a strong combine performance that has the scouting world excited. As a versatile defender capable of playing anywhere on the defensive line, the Georgia product provides the Jags a significant boost up front.

Travon Walker: Maurice-Jones Drew

Jones-Drew had this to say about Hutchinson:

Hutchinson’s potential is undeniable, but I’m concerned that he only put up high numbers in his last year at Michigan. Hutchinson has the ability to rush the passer and stop the run, two things the Lions battled with last season.

Whether or if MJD is correct regarding Walker vs. Hutchinson, there is one point on which all NFL fans can agree. Jacksonville’s first-round choice may be the most significant in team history.

Why is the Jacksonville Jaguars’ No. 1 selection so important?

The Jacksonville Jaguars “Tanked for Trevor” in 2020, going 1-15 and earning the opportunity to choose generational QB talent Trevor Lawrence out of Clemson with the first overall choice in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Lawrence redeemed himself after early-season troubles and probably the most dysfunctional head coaching scenario the NFL has seen in years, flashing glimpses of the great skill that has elevated him to the level of Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, and John Elway.  

The Jags received another top draft pick as a result of their Urban Meyer-induced difficulties.  

Jacksonville is putting everything on the line this summer to turn the franchise around for Lawrence. In the first 24 hours of free agency, the team recruited Super Bowl-winning coach Doug Pederson and spent over a quarter-billion dollars on new players.

The Jaguars may have already accomplished enough to be a.500 club, if not a playoff team. However, if they want to be a Super Bowl club in the near future, they must strike with their second straight No. 1 overall choice.

Whether it’s Travon Walker or Aiden Hutchinson, a great pass-rusher to complement Josh Allen, Trevor Lawrence, and the other free agents brought in by the tea, the Jags might have a scary defense to complement a bright young offense.

If that occurs, the possibility of a Lombardi Trophy in Duval County in the coming years isn’t as far-fetched as it would have looked only a few years ago.
