Why We Need Torry Holt

We have heavily debated wide recievers over the past few months and also whether we should trade for a wide out. I am opposed to trading for a big name reciever (i.e. Boldin or Edwards). Instead like most I see the value in signing a veteren for a incentive filled deal and then drafting a wide reciever. The reason the Jacksonville Jaguars need Torry Holt is simple...if we didnt sign Holt then people would be screaming and shouting for a wide receiver to be drafted in the first round, but just look at how rookie 1st round pick wide recievers have faired in the last few seasons.

(All Statistics of 1st Round Draft Picks)

 - Since 2004 only Michael Clayton has had more than 1000 yards in his Rookie Season.

- Of the 20 Receivers drafted in the first round since 2004, only 9 have had more then 500 yards in their rookie season.

- The Average Recieving Yards total in their rookie season since 2004: 526.1 yards

- The Average Touchdown Total in their rookie season since 2004: 3.35

What these statistics show is that by drafting Michael Crabtree or Jeremy Maclin, we are not going to fix our recieving group over night, it takes a year or so for these recievers to develop. Hopefully the addition of Torry Holt will allow Jacksonville to find a receiver and develop them because as we can see just because we draft a 1st round reciever doesnt mean we are going to fix everything overnight.
