(Editors note: I loved the tone of this fanpost - Terry)
The more I look at this year's draft the more I wish we would have pulled the trigger and promoted Gene Smith couple of years ago. I liked Shack but the selection method he employed wasn't very good in selecting top NFL talent. Enter Gene Smith. Only time will tell but this draft could be the best in Jags history. I know that may be a bit optimistic but if the top half of the draft pans out like it should with Monroe and Britton, the bottom half may be just as strong (maybe better?). The three receivers we got late look very promising, but I think Rashad Jennings may be the steal of the 2009 draft. The fact that he was playing ahead of Lesean McCoy as freshmen at Pitt is a good sign. I also consider the fact that he transferred to Liberty not because of academics or disciplinary actions but to be close to his Dad and family is also a positive in regards to character and heart. Check out this youtube video of Jennings...Rashad Jennings Video pretty cool. He looks explosive and seems to be a north-south runner who also has the speed to turn the corner. He also catches the ball well. I know he played against smaller schools while at liberty but in this years Senior Bowl he led all rushers . I see a strong possibility that he will be getting substantial carries this year as a Jaguar.
Good job, Gene Smith. Thank you for bringing excitment back to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
