Austin from Kansas City, MO

Q: Can you please bring the Jaguars to St. Louis please?

A: No.

Al from Jacksonville, FL

Q: Bear with me here. On Parks & Recreation, Lil' Sebastian is a little horse that's sacred to Indiana, much like the Colts. How is it not a tradition in Jacksonville for the crowd to sing "5000 Candles In The Wind" every time we beat the Colts?

A: The offseason is hard on all of us.

Alan from Aurora, IL

Q: How many Jaguars players will join Allen Robinson in the Pro Bowl next year?

A: My prediction? Four: Blake Bortles, A.J. Cann, Telvin Smith, and Jalen Ramsey.

Heywood from Jacksonville, FL

Q: Barring an off-the-field incident, is Noah Spence worth the fifth overall pick? This is assuming Jalen Ramsey and Joey Bosa are gone.

A: Yes, he is. He displayed top-10 talent throughout his entire college career and the weakness of this draft class bumps him up. He is the best pure pass rusher in the class, and is more than worth the fifth overall pick.

Justin from Gainesville, FL

Q: Why not draft Myles Jack? I think we will benefit more with him. He can play the slot, MLB, OTTO, maybe even some LEO on passing downs. Todd Wash said he wants to disguise our defense and opponents would never know what we are doing with Myles Jack.

A: It basically comes down to how much do you value linebacker play. Linebacker play is largely reliant on the play of the defensive line in front of them, so Jack shouldn't really be placed as a priority over any defensive line. But defensive coordinator Todd Wash could have different ideas or evaluate our line a little differently. All in all, there are a number of defensive playmakers in this draft and a number of ways we could go.

Mark from Merced, CA

Q: What's your Super Bowl prediction?

A: Panthers beat the Broncos by a score of 26-20.
