Jaguars targeting a "big" wide receiver in round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft?

Many of us Jacksonville Jaguars fans hope and want the team to draft a player like Christian Ponder at 16 overall, to get their quarterback of the future. With that being said, what are the Jaguars going to target in the second round of the draft if they get their quarterback of the future in the first round? A defensive end? An interior lineman? A potential starting linebacker? ....a wide receiver?

Typically in the past years, teams have paired their first round quarterback with another offensive position in the second round. I know we all want to immediately say "Well Gene Smith goes by his own drum!" That may be the case, but it's interesting to note the trend. "Sources have told us they will look for a bigger, possession receiver to pair with Mike Thomas, who they think can be their version of former All Pro Steve Smith," said Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net said.

So which bigger possession receivers could the Jaguars be targeting? Jonathan Baldwin of Pittsburgh would certainly fit that bill, but it's unlikely he makes it to pick 49. The same could be said for Miami receiver Leonard Hankerson. ...what about Boise State receiver, Austin Pettis?

According to sources, the Jacksonville Jaguars had a noticeable attendance at the Boise State Pro Day. Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter ran the wide receivers through drills and Jaguars defensive backs coaches had an eye on safety Jeron Johnson.
