Follow every pick of the 2013 NFL draft

Last year, the draft started with a pair of elite quarterbacks, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, going 1-2. It's offensive tackles who took control this time around, with Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel following No. 1 pick Eric Fisher off the board.

The Jaguars could have gone any number of ways with this pick -- and most assumed defense would be the direction, due to new head coach Gus Bradley's handiwork on that side of the ball as a coordinator in Seattle. But in Joeckel, the Jaguars land arguably the best player in this draft and an offensive tackle ready to step in and start in Week 1.

The biggest question for Jacksonville now: What's it mean for current left tackle Eugene Monroe? Will the Jaguars use Monroe and Joeckel as their bookends or try to move Monroe, with several other teams around the league clamoring for an offensive tackle?
