Vic hints that a RB might be the BAP @ #8

General Manager Gene Smith isn’t ruling out any position for the Jaguars’ first-round draft pick, and even though the team has a desperate need at left tackle and most scouting services have a tackle fitting at the number eight spot in the draft, Smith’s eyes light up when he talks about this year’s crop of running backs.

“They have piqued my interest. It’s going to be an enjoyable day for me to see what kind of an impression these underclassmen can make,” Smith said.

He’s referring to possibly the strongest crop of underclass running backs in scouting combine history. Georgia’s Knowshon Moreno, Ohio State’s Chris “Beanie” Wells (pictured) and Pitt’s LeSean McCoy headline a group that also includes UConn’s Donald Brown and Iowa’s Shonn Greene.

 

I know everyone's draft board have us picking an OT because it is a need but I honestly believe we just need to stick to our guns and get the best guy available. Gene Smith also feels this way, and that is why I believe that Smith will surprise us all and pick up a complement to MJD. Offensive tackle could be addressed in a later round...

 

Just my thoughts. BAP!!!!
