Jaguars' Backfield

With Mo-Jo Drew hitting the free agency it's time to think about the future for Jacksonville's running backs. I can't imagine the market going crazy over Mo-Jo so it is very possible he could be on his way back, on a reasonable salary. Another Jaguar RB who could hit the market has to be retained in my mind, that being Jordan Todman.

Todman looked decent behind an atrocious 2013 O-Line but would've looked much better had he had a better one. He was explosive, and looked alright as a pass catcher out of the backfield. I'm mostly intrigued by the Buffalo game in which he filled in for MJD, putting up 153 total yards. Give Todman a chance at starting behind an improved line next year and see where it goes from there.

Offensive Weapon Denard Robinson looked iffy in his first year transitioning from quarterback. Robinson didn't catch a single ball and fumbled 3 times in his 20 attempts. While improvement is expected in 2014, I'm not expecting too much. He's a project for a reason.

With 2 4th and 3 5th round picks mid-round running backs are very intriguing. This draft class features the most underclassmen declared by far, which will make the choices to choose from a lot easier for Jacksonville. Picking running backs early in the draft has become somewhat of an afterthought for NFL GM's and I don't expect Jacksonville to draft one until at least the 3rd round. I don't have a problem taking a running back in the 2nd round given the talent in this year's draft.

It is not yet known whether Jacksonville prefers physical running backs like Seattle or quicker, elusive backs. One of the running backs I have my eye on is Washington RB Bishop Sankey. Fast, agile, elusive and physical, I can't see him making it out of the 2nd round. My knowledge is that there will be a good RB selection in this draft, I just haven't looked into it much.
