Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid R. Khan is new to the NFL’s ownership group. Like most super-successful moguls, there are cries that he stepped over some people and left others in the dust.

In his case, the dust is more like potentially deadly toxic fumes.

Bryan Anger: Punter and so much more

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a history of inexplicable draft moves, highlighted by using a 2005 first round pick on a drugged out QB with the intention of converting him to wide receiver. It looked like more of the same during last week’s draft when they nabbed punter (PUNTER!) Bryan Anger in the third round. What the critics and haters failed to take into account is the added...

Jaguars draft 28-year-old Pendleton in 7th round

The Jacksonville Jaguars have drafted 28-year-old defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton in the seventh round. The team has an unsettled situation at defensive tackle, with Tyson Alualu coming off knee surgery and fellow starter Terrance Knighton out for the majority of the offseason following eye surgery. Pendleton is a 328-pound run-stopper who wanted to attend Michigan State out of...

Jaguars TE Zach Potter questions team over punter draft pick

Those following the NFL Draft on Friday probably had to do a double take when they saw the Jaguars selected Cal punter Bryan Anger with the seventh pick in the third round. It was a pick for which the Jags came under fire — these days taking a punter that early is rarely seen. Even the team’s own players were critical of the selection. Here’s what tight end Zach Potter had...

Justin Blackmon Lands in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Jaguars traded up to the No. 5 spot in the NFL Draft to reel in wide receiver Justin Blackmon. Fantasy Spin: While quarterback Blaine Gabbert had a horrendous rookie campaign, he did not have much help as the Jaguars had one of the very worst receiving corps in the NFL, especially since top target Mike Thomas gave up on the team down the stretch. So while Jacksonville...

Jacksonville Jaguars Draft Grades

5. WR Justin Blackmon AI normally don’t like when bad teams move up because they have so many needs, but everyone said there were 6 blue chip prospects in this draft class and the Jaguars were in a bad spot at 7. If I’m going to knock the Buccaneers for trading out of the top 6 for just a 4th round pick, I have to praise the Jaguars for trading up into the top 6 for just a 4th...

Jaguars release 2 punters

The Jacksonville Jaguars, who drafted punter Bryan Anger in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday, have released two punters who were on their roster, Nick Harris and Spencer Lanning, according to the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars drafted Anger, who played at Cal, with the 70th pick of the draft. That is the earliest a punter has been drafted since 1995. Harris, an...

Jaguars take Nevada LB Marshall in fifth

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Nevada linebacker Brandon Marshall in the fifth round of the NFL draft. The Jaguars traded their fourth-round pick to Tampa Bay to move up two spots in the first round and draft receiver Justin Blackmon, so they had to wait until the fifth round Saturday to get started on the final day of the draft. Marshall had...

Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 draft grades

Like mock drafts, draft grades are completely useless, don't indicate future success, and have absolutely no bearing on what teams do in the future in terms of drafting popular players (see Tim Tebow saga). Still, that doesn't prevent the woefully ignorant blogosphere from chalking up individual draft grades, and that's exactly what I'm all about. I didn't do...

Jacksonville Jaguars Draft Grade: Blackmon Leads Strong Class

When looking at a team’s draft class I tend to combine it with the free agency period as well and after this weekend, I would give the Jacksonville Jaguars a solid B+/A- in 2012 . They entered the offseason with needs at cornerback, wide receiver, pass rusher and backup quarterback; The Jaguars filled most of these spots via free agency and entered the Draft with no major holes...
