When Blackmon Is drafted before we pick 7th...

I expect Blackmon to be gone by the 7th pick. I think the Jaguars should draft Alshon Jeffery with this pick. Yes, he has concerns with his weight and speed, but his sophmore season stats of 88 catches for over 1500 yards led him to first team SEC (Over AJ Green).

His Junior year was more then disappointing, but the QB struggles directly effected his production. Jeffery provides a red zone target, which is crucial considering we dropped a touchdown seemingly every other game. Not only does he provide a red zone target, he also has the size and hands to pull in deep throws from Gabbert.

The Jaguars would be in a position where they would just need a speed receiver. Kendall Wright will be gone by the 2nd round pick, but maybe a Stevie Johnson would be a great pickup in Free Agency. Our receivers would be:

Alshon Jeffery, Stevie Johnson, and Mike Thomas in the slot.

Obviously, if Blackmon is available we take Blackmon. Our other options would be Dre Kirkpatrick, the best DE on the board, or the best OLine on the board.

Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright, and the other top WR will be good players in the NFL. Alshon stands out to me because of his size, and his ability to play the ball in the air. He has great hands. If you watch a highlight on Jeffery, you get that "wow" factor that Floyd and Wright just don't give. Alshon needs to show up to his pro day in shape ready to impress, and if he does, the Jags should pull the trigger!

let me know your thoughts.... GO JAGS!!
