Well, I picked this team because I knew they would be a challenge.
The Jags are just in a historically impossible spot at #7. It's miserable.
The value positions at this point are at OT, RB, and OG. And with the exception of right tackle, the Jags are set here.
As for the pieces the Jags do need... It's too low for Blackmon. Too high for Floyd. Too low for Kalil. Too high for Reiff.
Any pick for the Jaguars at this point is, by default, a reach. There are no playmakers on offense I like enough to take here. If I'm the Jags GM, I make the biggest play I can for Vincent Jackson, because Blaine Gabbert, shitty as he is, is alone out there.
There are some playmakers on defense that I love, however. I think this team badly needs some corners, and Kirkpatrick is the perfect zone corner for this team. But I don't think zone corners demand this kind of pick, either.
So I'm going to with who I think will be the best passrusher to emerge from this draft. The Jaguars select DE Melvin Ingram from South Carolina.
The Jags now have a defensive line of
DE: Jeremy Mincey
3T: Tyson Alualu
NT: Terrance Knighton
DE: Melvin Ingram
That is going to take as much pressure off Ingram as possible. And in turn, take this already-stout Jaguars defense to Top 5 territory, assuming we make the right acquisitions at the corner position.
The 'Phins are on the clock.
