DRAFT

1(3). Blake Bortles QB UCF; I was stuck between Bortles and Manziel. Manziel is an incredible football talent, he can throw, he can run, but I think Bortles is a better pro prospect than Manziel. Manziel is only 5'11 and doesnt have the same high release point that Russell Wilson and Drew Brees have, which limits what he can do and can cause a lot of batted passes. Also even when Manziel has a clean pocket, he still tucks the ball down and takes off. He doesn't sit in the pocket and wait for the play to develop like a pro quarterback should, he just gets out of the pocket. He takes some big risks, heaving the ball down field just for Mike Evans to come down with it while surrounded by defenders. Also Manziel's arm strength conerns me, and I think it limits him to a west coast offense. I really like Blake Bortles and think he has the potential to be a top 10 quarterback in the NFL. He's got great size at 6'4" 230 lbs, he's quite athletic, and is very tough. He can be easily compared to Ben Rothleisberger or even Cam Newton. He has a big arm, that can make all the NFL throws and then some. He's familiar with calling plays at the line of scrimmage, and goes through his progressions like a pro quarterback. Bortles is very good at shuffling his feet and moving around the pocket, and also has excellent poise in the pocket. Bortles routinely steps up in the pocket, takes the hit and delivers the pass, unlike somebody us Jaguars fans are familiar with. It's unlikely he is successful from the start, but with good coaches and a team being built around him from the ground up, Bortles can be a great Quarterback in the NFL in a few years. This pick may be viewed as a reach by some, but as it has been stated on this site in year's past...there is no reaching for a franchise quarterback.

2(39). Ka'Deem Carey RB Arizona; Carey is a really good back, arguably the best in the draft this season. Carey is very aggressive, very passionate, and very hungry. Gus Bradley loves these traits in a player. Carey is very agile and has great vision with good wiggle. He is very hard to tackle in the open field. He's a good receiver and solid pass blocker, the only thing he lacks is top-end speed as he isn't a burner. He will likely run between a 4.5 and 4.55. Still Carey is a very determined back who always plays with effort, he will be a great asset to the Jaguars moving forward.

3(70). Jeremiah Attaochu LEO Georgia Tech; Attaochu is a very quick and agile rusher who has an explosive first step. He has become a better block shedder and more powerful, but still relies on his speed rush to pick up sacks. Attaochu needs training with his technique as he's not very good at dipping his shoulder when turning the corner, but that's something that practice with Todd Wash can work out. He's solid against the run setting the edge and being a sound tackler. Attaochu will need to bulk up 10-20 pounds of muscle as he needs more power and a better anchor.

4(101). Jawuan James OT Tennessee; James can come in and compete with Pasztor and Bradfield for the starting Right Tackle position. James is a solid pass and run blocker with solid technique and great athleticism. This would be a steal for the Jaguars, as he can be a great right tackle.

4(110). Bryan Stork C Florida State; Stork has a great build, is very athletic, strong, and has a good motor. He has more then enough athleticism to play in the zone blocking scheme, and he's a great blocker with tremendous footwork. Stork can battle Brewster and likely win the starting center position.

5(132). Marcel Jensen TE Fresno State; While not the fastest, Jensen is a good receiver with good leaping ability and good size. At 6'5" 270 lbs, Jensen is a good blocker and a big red zone receiver while also being a really good special teams player.

5(138). Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska; CBSSports compares him to Brandon Browner. Baptiste is 6'2" 220 lbs, with long arms who is effective at jamming receivers. He is quite fluid for his size, but lacks burst and isn't the best tackler. His tackling can get better with practice, but Baptiste can come in and start right away in this system if needed.

5(147). L'Damian Washington WR Missouri; At 6'4" 205 lbs Washington combines great size with great speed. He has great body control, but is a project as he rounds off his routes and catches with his body too often. Nothing is too much for Jerry Sullivan to handle, and with a season or two Sullivan can turn Washington into a tremendous receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

6(163). Keon Lyn CB Syracuse; Lyn is an injury prone cornerback who is currently injured, but is worth a shot. At 6'1" 201 pounds, Lyn has plenty of talent for the NFL. He had 10 pass breakups and 3 interceptions in 2012. Lyn is plenty aggressive, a big hitter, and good tackler. He is solid in coverage, and if it wasn't for his injuries he would've likely been a 3-4th round pick.

7(199). Larry Webster DE Bloomsburg; At 6'6" 240 lbs Webster has the frame to get bigger and stronger. He's very long and a solid tackler, but when it comes to rushing the passer he's quite raw. Still, Webster has the frame and athletiscm to be a monster in the NFL one day. With Todd Wash and Gus Bradley, this project player can turn into a sack machine.
