i think if im the jags im looking at Picking Courtland Sutton who is the next mike Evans as right now the WR depth chart that is under contract reads: Allen Hurns, Keelan Cole, Dede Westbook. Lee and Allen Robinson are free agents to be.  Hurns might be kept but he might also be cut because he hasnt lived up to his contract and we can move on from him with very little dead money.  Sutton would add some much needed size at wr who can win the jumpballs.  if i were to pick an Olinemen i would take Chukwuma Okorafor who is a much better Linemen then Rankins.  yes we could potentially use a new Guard but our oline doesnt seem to be playing all that terrible.  Parnell isnt getting younger(he turns 32 in July) and while theres been a noticeable difference from him to our backup Tackle i would say we need to be looking for a future guy asap and we could cut parnell for 0 Dead Cap hit so we could save say 5 million which could be used to possibley upgrade at QB(cut bortles and him should be around 24 million in free space and i think we might be able to get a guy like cousins for around that). 

i dont want rudolph at round 2.  much rather have Clayton thorson TBH if we go QB route. id probably go look at the Best available player between QB, OL, WR, TE, CB.

Nope not after how the next six weeks will go.

The structure of this sentence suggests you're a time traveler. Vea was the other guy I considered for that spot. Ultimately, I targeted guys who would help rebuild the running game considering the developmental curb associated with quarterback, and the team is built to win in the short term.

Sutton was definitely a guy I considered but I felt offensive lineman would fall more closely in line with where the offense is going. I have no opinion on quarterbacks outside of the top 4 or so. I put Rudolph there because I could imagine him in a Jaguars uniform.

Peko is old. We need a NT. We can get a decent RT in this draft in the third with the way this board has gone.

we've scouted him alot but i think Thorson has better Physical tools to be a better successor.  like i said if im drafting a linemen im going with that western michigan guy. hes looked realy good when ive caught him. 

for the offense i think the team wants to be smash mouth but we run it a ton to limit Blakes turnovers.  last 3 games weve passed it 119 times to 111 runs(keep in mind 1 game was played in the snow in cleveland). i think they want to run a fairly balanced offense but right now the jags really dont have anyone capable of being a number 1 WR outside of robinson who is a free agent.  what will help our rush offense is getting a pass offense that is good enough to stop so many 8 and 9 men fronts. pairing Robinson with sutton would give us 2 Deep threats who can win 50-50 balls. our best deep threat for this year has been keelan Cole and as much as i want him to be good i just cant count on an UDFA rookie from tiny Kentucky Wesleyen who seems to have some cases of the drops.

What makes you think the Chargers will be drafting 7th? Cardinals are the far worse team. Also, no chance I'd take Denzel a NCB over Baker or Lamar.

Order based on last week’s standings. Ward isn’t a NCB.
