Reunion in Jacksonville?

USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams is projected as the No. 3 overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in ESPN analyst Todd McShay’s latest mock draft.

Last year, the Jaguars selected former Trojans receiver Marqise Lee in the second round with the 39th pick.

Lee had 37 receptions for 422 yards and a touchdown as the Jaguars finished 3-13.

Williams, from Daytona Beach, Fla., made 80 tackles, including seven sacks, for a Trojans team that finished 9-4.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is projected as the No. 1 pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is projected as No. 2 to the Tennessee Titans.
