Analysis:

Reggie Bush - We rely on the running game too much to move forward with an injured back. He's going to want a new contract too, so we release him, and snag a younger more explosive running back in Reggie Bush. He proved 2 years in a row he could carry the load in Miami. Now he has a better line, and the NFL's best blocking fullback. 2013 should be a 1,200 rushing yard season for him atleast.

Louis Vasquez - Good Lineman, best lineman in San Diego, we bring him in early and snag him while everyone is chasing Andy Levitre, and the guard from the Jets. Will sure up the left side.

Sebastian Vollmer - Arguably the best right tackle in the NFL, New England didn't want to give him a big contract, and 6.4 million a year, great weather, and no state income tax influence him to leave. Sures up the right side of the line, and solidifies the line.

Michael Johnson - He had 11.5 sacks this season, and across from Mincey could have more. They would explode together I think. Doesn't get a good offer from Cincinnati, better weather and no state income tax, influences another player to come to JAX.

Daryl Smith - We got Daryl back cheap I think. He is a top OLB, he could be getting paid 8 million a year, maybe more, but he settles for 6 a year, to stay in JAX. Will help the defense a lot having him back.

Derek Cox - Was allowed to test the market. Plenty of teams were interested, but not prepared to offer him big money due to his injury issues. Comes back to JAX for 4.5 a year. If he can stay healthy, he's one of the best.

Greg Jones - Reggie Bush would be happy to have Greg Jones blocking for him, and he's lucky, because Jones gets resigned for 3 million a year. The guy is a monster, and not having him we'd definitely feel an impact in the running game.

Star Lotulelei - Geno Smith gets snagged at #1, Jaguars take the BAP, who also fills a need because Knighton didn't get resigned. He's a monster as well. Quick off the snap, drives lineman back quickly, requires double teams, the guy is scary. This now makes the Jaguars defensive line feared, with Mosley, Lotulelei, Johnson, and Mincey.

Xavier Rhodes - Seahawks didn't need anybody on the board, so take the 4th round pick and move back 6 spots. Rhodes is a big corner at 6'1" 218 lbs. He has quick feet, fluid and smooth hips, good speed, plays the ball well, loves to tackle, and hits hard. With Rhodes and Cox we can play press man all game long, which they both excell at. Look forward to these guys shutting down opposing offenses.

Tyler Bray - I'm going to explain the trade first. Jets wanted a quarterback, and were going to take Tyler Bray, the Jaguars called, and offered Chad Henne who's better than any quarterback on their roster, and future 4th rounder and a 5th round pick. They took it, as Henne might end up starting as a Jet. Bray reminds me a lot of Gabbert in college, but a bigger arm, and not scared to take a hit. He doesn't step into his passes, and needs a lot of work. He relys on his pure arm strength, but he delivers, and can be a good starting QB in the future.

Kevin Reddick - He at one point was considered a 1st round pick, but slid far, due to a a poor season. At this point, he's worth a shot, we don't need to start him, and can use a backup linebacker. If he turns into his old self, we get lucky, and turned a 6th round pick into gold.

Zach Rogers - Nothing special, probably a practice squad player or 5th receiver. Played with Tyler Bray, so him having a receiver he's familiar with, should ease the process for him. Rogers will likely stick, and will get a shot at the roster.

That's only 48 guys, the last 5 guys will be depth some UDFAs, and guys I've never heard of. I started this at 7, was watching game clips of players on youtube while making my draft selections. Making sure I had the right guys. I put a lot of thought into this, and hope you enjoyed it. Were right at the cap. I know some of you will disagree with Gabbert as the starter and trading Henne, but I think Gabbert will be a good quarterback, and he has all the tools to be a successful quarterback. He'll have good coaches, good receivers, a good line, and an explosive running back tandem. And a good defense. By the way Mike Brewster is the starting center, because I think he's decent, and better than anybody in the draft, and there is no valuable center free agents. He should be solid as he has good lineman all around him.
