The NFL wants a lot of suspense heading into the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night.

The league reportedly reminded the Jacksonville Jaguars to try and keep the identity of the top overall pick close to the vest. They don't want it getting out before it's announced on television.

The Jaguars are likely looking at one of Travon Walker or Aidan Hutchinson for that top overall pick.

Both players are great pass rushers and would be projected as instant starters along the defensive line for many years to come.

However, there haven't been any definite reports about which one they like more than the other. Walker seems to be the most likely choice, based off the most recent scuttlebutt, but nothing has been confirmed.

It's going to create some great drama when the first round gets started at 8 p.m. ET unless the pick gets leaked by an insider.

You can watch the NFL Draft on ESPN, ABC, and NFL Network.
