Position Needs for Jacksonville
Safety: Starting free safety Deon Grant left via free agency (Seattle) and Donovin Darius has played a total of 12 games the last 2 years due to injuries. The Jags acquired Kevin McCadam who was released by Carolina, but McCadam is not an every down player.
Quarterback: Byron Leftwich has a ton of heart but is not the guy ability wise that is going to get you that ring. Backup David Garrard is a great backup and is not the long term answer for the starting job. Time to groom for the future and draft the long term answer.
Wide Receiver: Jacksonville wide receiving corps are some of the weakest in the league. Dennis Northcutt (Cleveland) was signed in the offseason, but a young stud playmaker could jump start this offense.
Draft Outlook for the Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville's drafts the last 4 years have been up and down. Their first round selections have never lived up to their full potential. QB Leftwich, WR Reggie Williams, WR Matt Jones, & TE Mercedes Lewis are the 4 players selected in the first round, none of which have made a pro bowl.
It wouldn't surprise us to see the Jags go after defense with the 17th pick, since they have gone after offensive players the last 4 years in the 1st, but if a guy like Ted Ginn Jr. (Ohio State) is available, it will be hard to pass up. Ginn would immediately give Jacksonville a deep speed threat, as well as a force in the return game (See Devon Hester from Chicago last year).
If the Jaguars go defense, Florida Gators safety Reggie Nelson would be a nice fit and fill a big hole. If the went with an end to give the line some youth, Adam Carriker from, Nebraska would be a quality choice.
