Rhett's Mock Offseason: 6.0?

FREE AGENCY:

Chad Henne QB JAC; 2 Years 4 Million - Henne is familiar with the system and the staff and can be a mentor and maybe a bridge, if needed, for a young QB. With a makeshift offensive line, no running game, and 1 solid receiver, Henne was mediocre at best. But with added talent Henne's game would likely improve.

Toby Gerhart RB JAC; 3 Years 9 Million - Similar deal to the deal of Shonn Greene. Gerhart has been in the league 4 seasons, and only has 276 carries, 1,305 yards, and 5 rushing TDs. He also has 77 receptions for 600 yards and 3 receiving TDs in his career. He has played in every game thus far in his career other than 1 his rookie season and 2 this past season. It's apparent Gerhart is a durable back with a lot of tread on his tires waiting to be kicking into a starting role. It's understandable he didn't play much sitting behind the best back in the league. Gerhart will also only be 26 this season. At 6'0" 230 lbs, if teamed with a scatback, the Jaguars may find their running game once again.

Lestar Jean WR HOU; 1 Year 700k - Small prove it deal for the disappointing receiver out of Florida Atlantic. Jean has the size, 6'3" 200 lbs, speed, and tools to be a great receiver in the NFL. He just needs somebody to help him put it all together. Jean needs work on his concentration catching the ball, and his route running. Training with Jerry Sullivan may turn his career around.

Jon Asamoah OG KC; 4 Years 22 Million - Similar to deal to the deal of Louis Vasquez. Asamoah is only 26, and is a very good lineman. He is good when pass blocking, and solid at run blocking. He is more than agile and athletic enough for the zone blocking scheme. Asamoah and Joeckel on the left side would solidify the left side of the line.

Earl Mitchell NT HOU; 3 Years 7 Million - Mitchell has a strong work ethic and has passion for the game. Mitchell was set for failure when the Texans switched to the 3-4 defense and put him at Nose Tackle. Mitchell is more suited for the 4-3 defense where he can play the shaded one-tech. He was not big enough for 34 NT role. He is only 6'3" 310 lbs. In the 43, with an extra 10 pounds from the weight room, the Jaguars can have a destructive duo in the middle. Mitchell was below average against the run and solid rushing the passer in the 3-4. With the scheme change, it is likely that Mitchell becomes stronger against the run, and begins wreaking havoc with Marks in the backfield.

Jason Worilds SAM/LEO PIT; 4 years 19 Million - Worilds would be a fantastic piece for this defense. The Jaguars now have a pass rusher to work on to the field. They can put his hand on the ground as a LEO, or stand him up and blitz him as a linebacker. This past season in Pittsburgh, Worilds had 21 hurries, 21 hits, and 8 sacks.

The Jacksonville Jaguars release Jason Babin and Justin Forsett.

DRAFT:

1(3). Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville - Bridgewater has everything to be a great Quarterback. The biggest knock on Bridgewater is his size, but he's proved he can add weight. Bridgewater has all the tools to he a successful QB, it would be too hard to not pick him.

2(39). Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt - Matthews gives you the size and athletiscm you want from a receiver. It is a possibility he is available when the Jaguars make their pick, and they will likely take a long hard look at him. He has all the tools and is a solid route runner. With Blackmon's future being an unknown, the Jaguars need somebody across from Cecil Shorts, and Matthews would be a great fit as the "Z" receiver.

3(70). Weston Richburg C Colorado State - Prototypical athletic center. Perfect for the ZBS, and CBSSports compares him to Brad Meester.

4(101). Demarcus Lawrence DE Boise State - Lacks the speed to play linebacker, and lacks the size to play defensive end. Lawrence is a tweener that would fit perfectly into the LEO spot for the Jaguars. He has a great frame. He has broad shoulders, 33 3/4" arms, and a lanky frame that can add 10 lbs without losing any speed or quickness. Also, Lawrence has 11" hands, which are 1/8 of an inch smaller than JJ Watts. He has good quickness of the line, active hands, and a bunch of pass rushing moves. The biggest knock on him is at 6'3" 251 lbs, he ran a 4.8 at the combine. This is why he drops in the draft, and the Jaguars get a steal. Lawrence has the potential to be great.

4(110). Justin Ellis DE/DT/NT Louisiana Tech - At 6'1" 334 lbs, Ellis is a big man. You would think he's just a boulder sitting there stopping the run, but he's more than that. He has 33" arms, and only put up 25 bench reps at the combine, but good leg drive helps him push back double teams. Was showing some pass rushing moves blowing by lineman during the senior bowl and east west shrine game. He's very explosive off the ball, and works very hard. Ellis looks like a rotational NT/DT right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if he shed about 15-20 pounds, if the Jaguars moved him to the 5-tech as he would be a force to be reckoned with.

5(132). Lamin Barrow MLB LSU - Barrow is very athletic, but needs to learn how to consistently wrap up the ball carrier, and also needs become a better pass rusher. He is very good at shedding blocks and moving from sideline to sideline. He's undersized at 6'1" 237 lbs, but he has long arms and a strong upper body that help him with getting off blocks. The beginning of his career will start off on special teams, but may be able to take the starting role in a few seasons.

5(138). Walt Aikens CB Liberty - 6'1" 205 lb 32 1/4" armed CB. Athletic and confident cornerback who can play off-man or press. He's a very aggressive corner who fights through blocks and is willing and confident in run support.

5(147). Tyler Gaffney RB Stanford - He has the power, vision, and agility to be a good back in the league. He'll have to find carries competing with Gerhart and Robinson.

6(163). L'Damian Washington WR Missouri - Raw receiver who needs work with his route running, but has the speed and size to be a solid outside receiver at 6'4" 195 lbs and running a 4.46.

7(199). Taylor Hart DE Oregon - Rotational 5-tech for now. At 6'6" 281 lbs, 32 3/4" arms, and 10 1/8" hands, Hart has great size and length. He has good eyes and awareness. He's a hard hitter, and can shed blocks well. Hart can add weight and develop while rotating in for limited snaps, and possibly take the role as a starter in a couple seasons.
