This week, we asked Jacksonville Jaguars fans which Baltimore Ravens player they’d cherrypick to place on the Jags roster.

35% of voters chose center Tyler Linderbaum, who was selected 25th overall out of Iowa last year. (Current Jaguars center Luke Fortner was taken 40 spots later.) Second-year safety Kyle Hamilton received 22% of votes and veteran cornerback Marlon Humphrey received 18%.

According to Sports Info Solutions, Linderbaum and Fortner have identical blown block rates on pass plays this season (1.3%). However, Linderbaum ranks 2nd among 42 centers with a 1.1% blown block rate on run plays and Fortner ranks 35th with a 4.1% clip. Linderbaum and Fortner rank 8th and 39th, respectively, among 39 centers in PFF grade.

As for the confidence tracker -- 63% of Jaguars fans are confident in the direction of the team, a drop from last week’s 78% mark. It was 95% the week prior. I’ll be interested to see what the chart looks like next week following a primetime matchup against the 10-3 Ravens.
