Jags Perfect Offseason

With the coaching hires and schemes that seem to be in place I think this would be the perfect off season for the draft.

Free agents

Sebastian Vollmer ( RT New England) - 5 year 30 million contract

Jason Jones ( DT/DE Seattle) - 2 year 4 million dollar contract

Danny Woodhead ( RB New England) - 3 year 9 million dollar contract

Andy Levitre ( OG Buffalo) - 5 year 25 million dollar contract

Dominik Hixon ( WR New York Giants) - 1 year 1.2 million dollar contract

Dashon Goldson ( S San Francisco) - 4 year 20 million dollar contract

Keenan Lewis ( CB Pittsburgh) - 1 year 1.3 million dollar contract

Jaguars Free Agents


Derek Cox ( CB) - 3 year 15 million dollars

Jordan Shipley ( WR) - 2 year 4 million dollar contract


I think that the Chiefs are going to draft Star Lotulelei with the first pick in the draft. Andy Reid loves defensive lineman and as was the case with the Eagles could never have enough. Since Jacksonville's number one option is off the board, and the Buffalo Bills really want and need a QB. Thinking there one QB away they trade there number eight overall pick there second round pick, and a second round pick for next year to move up and get Geno Smith.

And this is how the draft plays out from there:

Round 1 Pick 8 Barkevious Mingo ( DE LSU). Mingo would be the Perfect fit for the Leo Lineman in Gus Bradley's Defensive scheme. He is a carbon copy of Chris Clemons in Seattle only more athletic.

Round 2 Pick 1 Sharrif Floyd ( DT Florida). I see Sharrif playing the same role Brandon Mebane played in Seattle being the three technique D- linemen.

Round 2 Pick 8 Jonathan Banks ( CB Mississippi St.). Jonathan banks is a huge corner back whose physical and fast him across from Derek Cox would make are secondary immediately better.

Round 3 Pick 2 Tomas Chase ( LB/DE Stanford). This is a wild card pick, because I could see Chase Thomas playing the same role as Von Miller in Denver. Or we could just put him at D-end and have some serious defensive line depth.

Round 4 Pick 1 Tyrann Mathieu ( CB LSU). I would be ecstatic if we picked up Tyrann Mathieu. This is like a Bruce Irvin in Seattle situation. An extremely talented player likely a first rounder; drops for extreme character issues. A do it all defender the possibilities are endless with this guy on defense. Plus hes a superstar kick returner something Jacksonville hasn't had in a long time.

Round 5 Pick 2 Brian Winters ( OG Kent St.). I like this pick because Winters has good potential even though he doesn't play in the best conference. Jacksonville has been plagued with offensive line injuries yearly and this would provide good depth behind the starters.

Round 6 Pick 1 Jake Stoneburner ( TE Ohio St). Jacksonville needs a second tight end Stoneburner is not super athletic, but he has reliable hands and is a good blocker and we get him for a cheap sixth rounder.

Round 7 Pick 2 Mario Benavides (C Loisville). This is a sleeper pick for me this guy has great strength and has had a great season going up against good opponents at Louisville. He has drawn comparison to pro bowl Center John Sullivan From the Vikings, and could come in and challenge Mike Brewster for the starting center position.

Sorry to those who hate Blaine Gabbert but were going to have to stick it out another year. Tough year for anyone who needs a QB.
