Before it was the face of the franchise, Maurice Jones-Drew. But now I have a new favorite and he is the big off-season acquisition, Aaron Kampman. At one time I wanted a team full of MJD's; tough players who talent was much bigger than their body would indicate. Now I want a team full of Aaron Kampmans; overachieving players that make everybody around them better. As we all know, Kampman was a 5th round pick and has outplayed where he was drafted by becoming a master of his position. It would seem as if it was not only through his talent, but through sheer dedication to his craft and I have nothing but respect for that. If you've been to jaguars.com and watched any of his interviews, you'll see he is an intelligent man and I always feel better knowing a player like him is on the team. It's too bad he is at this stage in his career as I wish we could've had a five year younger version of him. I really hope that Larry Hart and Austen Lane follow suit and eventually have the same impact later on that Kampman is having now. They both were 5th round picks, so we know that has nothing to do with the players they can become. So this is to my new favorite Jaguar, Aaron Kampman; may he continue to leave a positive impression on this team, now and into the future.
Got another favorite Jaguar? Who is it? I'd like to know.
