The Jacksonville Jaguars have continued to stay busy this week, with the latest prospect making a visit being UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr, who also made a trip to the AFC South rival Tennessee Titans, according to reports.

Barr’s draft stock has fallen a bit over the winter, but he’s a logical fit for Gus Bradley’s defense as LEO. The Jags may be considering Barr with the No. 3 pick, but more likely as an option should the team elect to move out of this spot. Of course, they could just be doing their due diligence.

Barr is mocked to the Titans with the 11th overall pick in the latest XN Sports Mock Draft. It’s a natural fit for Tennessee, which lacks a true edge rusher.

One prospect working his way up draft boards is Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson, who shined during his Pro Day workout Tuesday. Robinson notched a 42-inch vertical job, a sub 4.5 40-yard dash time, and according to NFL Media draft analyst Gil Brandt, certainly improved his stock.

Robinson may not come off the board in the first round, but the second is definitely a realistic option. Members of both Pennsylvania teams — the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers — were in attendance at the Pro Day, and both teams are in need of wide receiver depth. The Eagles released DeSean Jackson, while the Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders to the Denver Broncos.

Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller has seemingly worked his way into the first round come May, and this week he has made his visits around to interested clubs. According to the Baltimore Sun, Fuller has scheduled visits with the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He has private workouts set up with both the Colts and Carolina Panthers.

A number of different teams are in the mix for a corner toward the latter portion of the first round, including Cincy, the San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints and Carolina. The XN Sports Mock Draft 2.0 projects Fuller to land with Cleveland at No. 26.
