4th round. 114. Mekhi Wingo. . DL. Mekhi Wingo. Mekhi Wingo. player. 52.

While Smith is the run-stuffer and power-rusher, Wingo is a bit undersized on the defensive interior, but he wins with speed. At his best, he can blow by any offensive guard like this play against FSU. 

However, at his worst, he can get pushed around by larger offensive linemen and could struggle to defend the run in the NFL. 

The Jaguars are a team that drafts on upside, most notably taking Travon Walker No. 1 overall in 2022 over Aidan Hutchinson and while Wingo may not jump out in terms of size at 6-foot-1 295-pounds, he does impress with his speed and quickness.
