Notable Free Agents: T Guy Whimper, K Josh Scobee
The Jaguars are a team that I can’t get excited about. Their defense is actually decent (they were in the top ten in total yards allowed), but I challenge you to name a starter. Rookie QB Blaine Gabbart has nobody to catch anything (no one had more than 460 yards receiving and that was TE Marcedes Lewis) and RB Maurice Jones-Drew is the only player who is worth anything. They don’t call him “Pocket Hercules” for nothing. He’s a 5 foot 7 inch 200+ lb. bowling ball who had over 1600 yards rushing last year and he is the only redeeming player on this team right now. The Jags need about everything and unless they knock this draft out of the park, they are going to be several years away from relevant.
As for the draft, a top-notch DT, LB or CB is probably their best bet to shore up their defense. WR Justin Blackmon probably won’t be available, so make the defense a potential top-five squad and then go all out drafting for the offense.
On the Clock: Miami Dolphins (Pick #8)
