Cecil Shorts III, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
School: Mount Union
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
After a disappointing rookie campaign, Shorts saw an expanded role during the 2012 season and surprised everyone by hauling in 55 passes for 974 yards and 7 touchdowns. He emerged as a very good deep threat and if it weren’t for a concussion, he likely would’ve reached 1000 yards in his sophomore campaign, even with Blaine Gabbert throwing him the ball.

Gene Smith is perhaps most famous (or infamous) for not drafting Tim Tebow in the 2010 NFL Draft. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t know who the hell Smith is. He was the man who drafted Tyson Alualu, a projected second round defensive tackle, rather than the “savior” of the franchise. Never was there a hometown guy that was so desperately wanted...
The Jacksonville Jaguars are rebuilding the team via free agency. Four recent additions include former playoff DB Alan Ball.
Draft Zone Spotlight: Chris Denton, WR, Mount Union
Both Chris Denton and Jasper Collins have been very fun to watch this year for Mount Union. While some believe Jasper is the most talented player on the Mount Union squad, one person that could be just as talented if not more talented is Chris Denton. Chris Denton and Jasper Collins have been amazing this year at wide out, leading...
