The order of the 2012 NFL Draft was released Monday and the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11) will pick seventh overall on April 26.

After a disappointing season, the Jaguars will have several needs to fill, especially on the offensive end of the ball.

Does Jacksonville take a wide receiver or lineman to help support rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert? 

Or will the team target a quarterback to replace Gabbert, who struggled mightily?

Jaguars 101 will have plenty of draft coverage in the coming months, but here is a quick list of prospects that fit the Jaguars' needs that will likely fall between the 5-10 range.

WR Justin Blackmon, 6-1/ 210, Oklahoma State- Is all over the draft board but is a true talent. Some attitude concerns. He could go as early as 2 but also slip out of the top 10. 

CB Morris Claiborne, 6-0/175, LSU - Dynamic play maker has all the traits you look for in a corner. He's possible at 7 but likely doesn't make it past the Bucs at 5.

OL Jonathan  Martin, 6-6/300, Stanford – A strong run blocker with potential to compliment LT Eugene Monroe at RT. 

DE Quinton Coples, 6-6/275, North Carolina – Superb talent but there are those who question his work ethic. Not a typical Gene Smith pick in that sense.

QB Robert Griffin III, 6-2/220, Baylor - If the Jaguars decide to move forward without Gabbert, RGIII is the only likely option at the 7 slot.
