Jags Perfect Off Season Post Combine

Jaguars 2014 Free Agents

Corey Wotten DT Chicago- A pass rushing DT he is only 26 and can come in and rotate with Sen’Derrick Marks.

Arthur Jones DE Baltimore- A run stuffing defensive end I think he would make good depth behind Tyson Alualu and maybe even take his starting job.

B.J Raji NT Green Bay- A huge DT he had a down year but he has played at elite levels in his career. I think Gus Bradley could get him back in premier form and he would give us a prime run stuffer on the interior o-line.

Sidney Rice WR Seattle- Rice is an often injured receiver that has top ten talent when he’s healthy. Justin Blackmon’s future is uncertain. I think Rice can come in on a one year see if you can stay healthy deal and fill the role of big bodied pass catcher.

Evan Dietrich Smith C Green Bay- Dietrich Smith was rated the number 8 overall Center by Pro football focus and he’s only 26. He should be relatively cheap and would instantly upgrade our interior OL.

Jon Asomoah OG Kansas City- This would be the Jags splash free agent signing, Asomoah is a top ten Guard in the league and he would immediately come in and solidify one of the guard spots. He’s a great pass and run blocker and he has experience with the zone scheme.

2014 Jaguars Draft

3rd Overall Pick- Khalil Mack LEO/DE/OLB Buffalo- Mack is the Jags perfect pick. He has no off the field issues, he’s a high motor, high intensity, high effort, player with immense talent, athleticism and work ethic, who fits one of a football teams most important needs the LEO DE. Mack is a near flawless prospect and could come in day one and improve the Jags pass rush as a rookie. I would not be surprised if he had double digit sacks in his rookie year.

Round 2 Pick 7-Ryan Shazier OLB Ohio State- Here is to hoping he falls this far, the Jags are in desperate need of a game changer at linebacker. Shazier has the athleticism and the instincts to be that linebacker. He’s good at all three faces of defense: coverage, pass rush, and run stopping; something are current linebackers aren’t capable of. I compare Shazier to Tampa Bay’s Levonte David and I could see Shazier winning DROY.

Round 3 Pick 6-Jeremy Hill RB LSU- The Jags need to get back to running the football. In this scenario the Jags o-line is basically fixed now all we need is a talented running back. Jeremy Hill is a huge 6’ 230 lb running back who has good vision. He brings immediate toughness to the backfield and takes the weight of the QB’s shoulders. He compares to LaGerret Blount from the Patriots in there ruff and rugged styles.

Round 4 Pick 5-Donte Moncrief WR Ole Miss- Moncrief is a big bodied ultra athletic receiver who I could see filling Justin Blackmon’s spot if he didn’t come back. We have Sydney Rice but like I said Sydney’s injury history makes him a risk, and getting Moncrief not only gives us talented depth but also insurance on injuries.

Round 4 Pick 14-Christian Jones OLB/ILB/LEO- A jack of all trades I have him filling a role similar to Bruce Irvin in Seattle. Jones is a jack of all trades in the front seven of the defense and adds even more athleticism to the D. He can play stand up Linebacker but he also can play a rushing end from the linebacker position.

Round 5 Pick 4-Logan Thomas QB Virginia Tech- A huge QB 6’6" 255 who can run 4.6 40 and has a cannon for an arm. The major problem with Thomas is he is extremely raw. He has inconsistent footwork which leads him to have inconsistent accuracy and he’s still learning the technicalities that come with being a QB. I think Thomas has vast potential more than any other QB in this draft or last years, it just won’t surface if he’s forced to start year one. I think a year on the bench will really bring along his development.

Round 5 Pick 10-Brandon Linder OG Miami- Another developmental prospect who could eventually move into the starting lineup. He’s familiar with Jedd Fisch and should have no problem fitting in the zone blocking scheme.

Round 5 Pick 19-Crockett Gilmore TE Colorodo State- A big bodied tight end who is great at blocking can come in on two and three tight end sets in run blocking formations. He also has sneaky good hands which could make him valuable in goal line situations.

Round 6 Pick 3-Deandre Coleman DT CAL- A massive DT 6’5" 315 he would add great depth to the d line as a run stuffer. He needs to develop his technique but overall this would be a great pick for the jags.

Round 7 Pick 7-Andre Hal CB Vanderbilt- Hal isn’t the biggest corner at 5’11" 190 but he is very aggressive. I think he can come in and play at the same level as Will Blackmon for a cheaper price and he’s younger.

Undrafted Free Agents

Jay Prosch FB Auburn- because he’s a fullback and he doesn’t excel in any area other than blocking I think Prosch goes undrafted. This would be great for the Jags because were in need of a hammer to make holes for our running game.

*I know a lot of you aren’t going to be happy with Chad Henne at QB still but I think this can be a competitive roster. In this scenario Logan Thomas would have a pretty talented team when he took over the reins after he has developed.

*Comments and criticism much appreciated.
