What I think they are thinking at the headquarters of the Jacksonville Jaguars…
We love what we did in the draft. Luke Joeckel is an absolute stud, and once people see this sure thing in action, he’ll erase any questions about why we were so willing to go with an offensive tackle at No. 2. We will be better at quarterback, better at running back and better at guard because of his presence. We need elite players, and he is one. Johnathan Cyprien will be a great strong safety for us, showing nice instincts while playing a key role in stopping the run. We needed size and a starter at cornerback, and Dwayne Gratz definitely gives us one and we expect he’ll give us both. While Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts and Maurice Jones-Drew will be productive players on offense for us, we needed more explosive speed. We got that with receiver Ace Sanders, who will also return punts, and with running back Denard Robinson, who will also return kicks. They’ll scare defenses. Out last three picks will all have a chance to stick and have roles in the secondary, and area where we lost a lot between free-agent defections, expired contracts and releases.
