Jaguars wide receiver Mike Thomas has an idea why his number of catches fell from 66 in 2010 to 44 last season. "We might not have been pushed hard enough," Thomas said.
Recently profootballfocus.com put out their draft grades for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2008-2010. That includes one year (’08) of Shack Harris drafted players and two years of Gene Smith era players. Fortunately the only player drafted by Gene Smith to receive a grade lower than 0.0 was Eben Britton. This seems odd to me because Britton was widely considered to be a solid player by the Jags coaching staff and the NFL community during his rookie season. Perhaps time spent on the field played a major factor in the downgrade. At the same time, D’Anthony Smith (our favorite injured player) received a 0.0.
