Found April 28, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
I don’t do grades for drafts. I read them, sure, but to grade a draft immediately after the draft, is an exercise in stupidity.  No one really knows who’s going to be good and who will bomb and fail. However you can look into the way the team drafted and try to evaluate how who they brought in, could help the team in the areas of the perceived needs. Again, teams look at things differently than fans and media do, so what we think of as a need, may not be one to the team... Read more

Jaguars still not interested in Tim Tebow

Just prior to David Caldwell being hired as the Jaguars' general manager, it was reported by a certain four letter (E**N) that it was virtually a certainty that the Jaguars would be bringing in Tim Tebow. That rumor didn't last long after Caldwell was hired. He made it unquestionably clear that the Jaguars weren't interested. "I can't imagine a scenario...

Aaron Rodgers’ brother lands with Jaguars

Despite having their pick of the litter, the Jaguars chose not to draft any quarterbacks from this year's class. But they did take a certain flier. According to NFL.com, the Jags signed Aaron Rodgers' little brother, Jordan, as a priority undrafted free agent. The 6-foot-1 Rodgers, a JUCO transfer, capped off a two-year career at Vanderbilt in which he completed 55.9...

Jaguars draft former Michigan QB Denard Robinson

The Jacksonville Jaguars used their 5th round pick on former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. The Jags will need to figure out what position they want Robinson to play.  He’ll either be a wide receiver or running back.  I believe he’s better off being a back and being used like Darren Sproles.   Need NFL Tickets? The post Jaguars draft former Michigan QB Denard Robinson...

Jaguars Sign UDFA Tight End Ryan Otten

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed UDFA tight end Ryan Otten. Otten played for San Jose State and offers ideal size for a pass catching tight end that can stretch the field. He lacks strength though, which will make him a blocking liability. For this reason alone, it will be tough for him to make the final roster. In the NFL, you need to be able to do both or at the very least...

Jaguars part ways with 3 in front office

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with three front office personnel, including director of player personnel Terry McDonough. The others dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were Louis Clark, the team's director of pro personnel, and regional scout Chris Prescott. The moves came as no surprise given that most new GMs bring in their...

Jacksonville Jaguars Sign UDFA Quarterback Matt Scott

The Jaguars have signed, former Arizona Wildcat quarterback, Matt Scott as an undrafted free agent. Scott is a talented but raw prospect having played as the starter in Arizona just one year. He took over for Nick Foles and played really well under former Michigan head coach, Rich Rodriguez. While Scott is an intriguing athlete, he most likely will struggle to make the team. But...

NFL Draft: Jacksonville Jaguars bypass quarterbacks, focus on defense

The Jacksonville Jaguars could have had their pick of any quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft but they completely bypassed each and every one. Instead, the Jaguars waited until the conclusion of the draft and selected Arizona quarterback Matt Scott. Scott ran a version of the read option last season for the Wildcats while completing 60% of his passes and throwing for 27 touchdowns...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: Jacksonville Jaguars

First Round: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M Joeckel was certainly the best player available, but the only problem is that Jacksonville already has a solid starter at LT. Will Joeckel be a right tackle? It's a bit ridiculous to draft a RT second overall in the draft. I think they should have gone defense and taken Jordan. I hate faulting a team for taking the best player...
