the boredom of this week has led me to try to kill time. So here is a list of receivers and the round that the jags cannot allow them to drop below. The jags are dumb if they pass up on these receivers in these scenarios.
1st round-None-even though probably most of the frequent visitors on this site know that I am a HUGE fan of Justin Blackmon being on the jaguars I don’t think that at #7 there’s going to be anybody that the jaguars Can’t pass on
2nd round-Alshon Jeffery-I’m not a huge Jeffery fan at all. I think he’s got potential but is lazy. That being said if he is there in the second the jaguars cannot afford to pass up on him. His upside far outweighs the huge bust he could become in a round outside the first. With a good WR coach and some motivation(money) he could turn into a very good receiver.
3rd round-Greg childs-a lot of people(including myself) had forgotten greg childs but as of recently you see his name resurfacing more and more. There’s a reason for that. in his time at Arkansas he was a STUD. He is a big strong possession type receiver that isn’t a “project” like Stephen hill and doesn’t have motivation issues like Alshon Jeffery. His big question is an injury. But with almost two years into his recovery I think its safe enough to pick him. My first real memory of watching childs play was him against florida. All i can remember is me saying in my head every time I saw him catch a pass “he's an NFL receiver playing in college.” If healthy throughout his college career he would be a top 5 WR prospect right now. With the worst of his injury seeming to be in his past this is a no brainer and the jags need to take him. And would be stupid to pass him up.
4th round-Ryan Broyles-A guy in a situation almost identical to childs; A stud in college but forgotten about due to an injury. People are worried about his injury but considering its an acl tear that occurred a year ago, im not. If he was added to the team mike Thomas and jarret dillard would be expendable. Would immediately come in and start at the slot. A quick receiver with good hands, toughness over the middle, and break away speed the jags would be dumb to pass him up at this point in the draft. D-U-M-B!
5th round-Patrick Edwards-another small quick guy. Not as big a fan of him as I am of broyles, and joe adams. But his production at Houston speaks for itself(catching a pass in 35 consecutive games). Came from a pretty pass heavy offense and doesn’t look to be an elite player. But in the fifth round and the possibility of adding some playmaking ability to our WR corp the jags have to take this guy.
6th round-BJ Cunningham-Not to often talked about prospect at receiver Bj Cunningham has the potential to be pretty good value in the later rounds. He is a long receiver that looks and plays A LOT bigger than he actually is 6-2 215. He can shield defenders and goes up to get balls even in the middle of the field. Was the all time leading receiver at Michigan state and played very well considering the emphasis on the running game there. His two major concerns are his hands (which are tiny) and his ability to separate. With some good coaching at route running I believe he could be an ernest wilford type player but on steroids(not literally just better version of ernest). Not something you can pass up when the talent pool at this point is beginning to look like a high school roster.
