Like last year, the Jacksonville Jaguars have the top pick in the NFL Draft. But unlike last year, there doesn't seem to be an overwhelming consensus as to who they'll take.

Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke muddied the waters a little bit more today. He told the media on Friday that the Jaguars have narrowed down their list of potential picks to four players.

The last four NFL drafts have all been led by QB-needy teams with an obvious top pick that stood out from the crowd. That's not the case this year.

None of the top five teams in the draft have glaring needs at quarterback. And there isn't even that can't-miss prospect like a Chase Young or a Nick/Joey Bosa that's the obvious top talent.

As you can tell from the comments, fans have already started guessing who the four players are anyway. Most fans believe that it must be Aidan Hutchinson, Travon Walker, Evan Neal and Ikem Ekwonu.

Hutchinson was a Heisman Trophy finalist this past year after an incredible season at Michigan. Meanwhile, Walker has limited production but has measurables that many analysts believe could make him the next elite pass rusher.

Neal and Ekwonu are both top-rated offensive linemen that some believe can be perennial Pro Bowlers.

The Jaguars have literally limitless options for their No. 1 overall pick.

Who do you think the Jaguars will choose when all is said and done?
