I know the Jaguars and their fans are ready to sign a wide receiver that can excel as a number one receiver. One who can stretch the field and get deep. I'm a frustrated fan, too. But to choose a wide receiver with our seventh pick just to show the disgruntled fans that the Jags are "all in" could be a mistake. Over the past 10 years, wr's who have been chosen in the top 10, fail more than succeed. Most of the ones who have done really well are the physical freaks like Calvin and Andre Johnson, along with Larry Fitzgerald.To force the issue and choose a receiver in the top ten will be extremely detrimental to the improvement of the Jags. If we choose a receiver who turns out just average, we miss out on getting a top 10 talent at another position. I don't think any of the receivers expected to be chosen high in the first round of this years draft fit the mold of a dominating number 1 receiver. Blackmon and Floyd look like complimentary receivers. I think you're more likely to hit a homerun at this position with someone in the late first or second round, like Steve Johnson, Alshon Jeffrey, or A.J. Jenkins. The Jags have several positions that need attention. I think we should choose the BAP at 7 who fits one of those areas whether its OL, secondary, or defensive line. You can never have too many interior linemen, especially on defense where a rotation seems to works well. Also, the DE position is fairly deep this draft, maybe get one in the third round like Cam Johnson. If the Jags choose Blackmon, of course I will pull for him to be the man, but I really have my doubts. With all this said, can't wait for tomorrow night!
