Hi fellas, i am very satisfied with the jaguars 2014 nfl draft picks but analizing our trade ups i think that we could did it a little bit diferent and keeping at least one of our lost picks via trade.
Round 1 QB Blake Bortles. Best QB available no matter what analists are saying, we need a franchise QB and we pulled the trigger. No one knows if Bortles would be available at mid 10's and 20's of first round with a trade back movement. FINAL GRADE: A WHY? QB is our most important need and we filled four many years.
Round 2 WR Marqise Lee. A big steal cus' he colud be a late first round pick and he fell to us at 39th pick. Great playmaker. FINAL GRADE: A WHY? We need WR depth and Lee is a first day starter.
Round 2 Pick 61. WR Allen Robinson. Bigger WR and posible starter at day 1.
FINAL GRADE: A- WHY? We filled i need at WR and we make a very interesting contest for WR Starter spots. If not trade involved we could pick at 70 WR Josh Huff or Donte Moncrief.
I will continue with my redraft scheme very soon....
Now I am back, so i will continue with the next round.
Round 3. Pick 70. Lost pick to SF by trading up WR Allen Robinson
Round 4. Pick 105. C Russell Bodine NC. Our biggest need in OL after Brad Meester Retirement.
Another option. Brandon Thomas G Clemson.
Pick we made:
OG Brandon Linder. If Jedd Fisch liked this guy because he knows him from college, why we gave up an 6th round pick just for select him 12 picks before.
FINAL GRADE: D WHY? No reasonable way to understand why took him earlier. We could picked him with our first 4 round pick.
Round 4. Pick 114. Aaron Colvin. Great steal but he is healing and if we wanted a cornerback here we could pick Pierre Desir or Keith McGill.
FINAL GRADE: B- WHY? This pic will be the steal of this years draft if Colvin become top 10 CB next year.
Round 5. Pick 144. LB Telvin Smith FSU. Excellente choice and we put more depth to our defense.
FINAL GRADE: A- WHY? Telvin Smith has very good skills, he is athletic and fast, but he must earn weight.
Round 5. Pick 150. Lost pick to San Francisco by trading up for WR Allen Robinson.
Round 5. Pick 159. Chris Smith DE Arkansas. Gus Bradley's boy.
FINAL GRADE: B WHY? HC Gus knows him very well from the last combine and he is a great adition to our DL helping rotation with Denderrick Marks.
Round 6. Pick 179. Lost pick to Patriots for Brandon Linder's trade up
If we could keep this pick:
Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff OT Mc Gill. Very high character on the field and off with a coachable, committed work ethic. Prepares extremely well and puts in the time off the field. Intelligent student of the game and a quick learner. Tough and durable. Versatile experience, playing at left and right tackle in college.
FINAL GRADE: A- WHY? He was considered a 3-4 round pick so if we had taken him at round 6 would be an excellent adquisition.
Another option: Jon Halapio G Florida
Round 6 Pick 205 Daniel McCullers DT Tennessee.
FINAL GRADE: B WHY? Best player available in a very good situation. More depth to our DL.
Round 7 Pick 222. Storm Johnson RB. Great value here.
FINAL GRADE: A- WHY?? He could be drafted in 4th-6th round.
My final draftboard.
R1 Blake Bortles QB
R2 Marqise Lee WR
R2 Allen Robinson WR
R4 Russell Bodine C / Brandon Thomas G / David Yankey G
R4 Aaron Colvin CB / Pierre Desir / Keith McGill CB
R5 Telvin Smith LB
R5 Chris Smith DE
R6 Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff OT / Jon Halapio G
R6 Daniel McCullers DT
R7 Storm Johnson RB
A personal apreciation is that OL Men now as possible starters are White Men.
LT Luke Joeckel
LG Zane Beadles
C Luke Bowanko
RG Brandon Linder
RT Austin Pasztor
Is it coincidence or just white boys here, what do you think???
I prefer David Yankey or Brandon Thomas before Brandon Linder and Daniel McCullers instead Pasztor.
