With draft week officially here for the NFL, that means there are going to be a lot of rumors that pop up.

One rumor that's already going around on Monday morning is that the Jaguars like Ikem Ekwonu for the No. 1 overall pick.

Ekwonu is one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL Draft and the Jaguars could surely use him to help protect Trevor Lawrence.

That said, he would definitely be a surprise top overall pick since Aidan Hutchinson has gotten the most buzz at that spot all year long.

Hutchinson is the best defensive linemen prospect in this draft and will also be a difference-maker wherever he goes.

Part of this could be a smokescreen, but even if Ekwonu isn't the pick at that top spot, it won't be long until he's taken by a team.

It remains to be seen if more buzz pops up about Ekwonu being the top overall pick as the draft gets closer.
