I gave up trying to figure out which way teams go in the draft a long time ago. Like the joke about teaching a pig to dance, you never succeed and it just annoys your team. Admittedly, some teams do the obvious; how many of us didn't think the Jaguars would go offensive tackle in the 2013 draft? Then you have the Blaine Gabbert pick. I doubt many of us saw that coming, and we all know how that worked out.
Jacksonville will do one of two things on May 8. They'll either pick one the three "top" QB prospects, depending on who's sitting where, or they'll pass on QB and pick Clowney, Robinson or one of the other top-rated guys. (Personally, I'd have no heartburn with Sammy Watkins, but that's just me). Or they'll do what a lot of other people are speculating and wait until the second or third round on the QB pick for a guy that sits behind Chad Henne for a season, a prospect about which a lot of people aren't happy.
Whatever they do, they're keeping it close to the vest, as we all expect NFL GMs, owners, coaches and scouts to do. But sometimes you see little things that make you wonder. In the big picture of things, it's probably meaningless, and isn't something to be read into. But I noticed a tidbit in this Pro Football Talk story about Miami QB Steven Morris' pro day workout tomorrow:
Morris also will get an assist from former Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. The Jaguars offensive coordinator will run Thursday’s workout.
This will obviously give the Jaguars offensive coordinator a close-up view of a guy that some call "average" but others called a "sleeper." And maybe a diamond in the rough for the Jaguars to get in a later round.
Stranger things have happened.
