Best Team Draft
For the first time in years, Jacksonville had a weekend where just about everything went their way.
First, the Kansas City Chiefs decided that Eric Fisher was a better offensive tackle than Luke Joeckel, allowing the player many felt was the best overall prospect in the draft to fall right into the Jaguars’ laps with the 2nd overall pick.
The Jags then wisely resisted the temptation to draft Geno Smith with the first overall selection in the second round, instead opting for FIU’s Johnathan Cyprien, who many feel will be the best safety of this year’s draft.
From there, Jacksonville concentrated on adding speed and sizzle to their roster, highlighted by receivers Ace Sanders (also a star return man) and Denard Robinson in the fourth and fifth rounds. The Jags did not land a quarterback (Robinson notwithstanding), but the front office took major steps to improve the team in all three facets of the game.
