What would a mock draft look like if the lead blogger from every NFL team blog site participated in a real “on the clock” draft? Find out on Monday April 19th as CBS Sports.com conducts the real Ultimate Blogger Mock Draft.
The FanSided Network and CBS have worked together to put this event on. It will be a two round draft. I have to warn you, I have a hard time not thinking about this fact:
If it wasn’t for Detroit, Jacksonville would have given up the highest pass completion percentage in the league.
The average was a 68% completion rate. Folks, we played the bottom rung of football last year. We played Kansas City and Buffalo and St. Louis. We played Cleveland, Tennessee and Seattle. Arizona went 27 of 32 against us. Chad Henne went 21 of 29 against us.
We were also the sixth worst team in giving up passing yards per game, 235. Of course this is the same amount New Orleans gave up, but they had a better offense.
The point I am making is this, this completion percentage and passing yards per game has to stop or the Jaguars will remain in the cellar begging for someone to buy their tickets. Oh No, I feel a rant coming on….
Gene Smith can you hear me!!! Get someone in here who can shut this passing attack against us off!!!! Do it with everything you got!
Ok, I am calm now. If feel when I am on the clock, there will be a strong needs pull within me. If Eric Berry is available, I am on it. If Earl Thomas can knock down some passes, I want him. If Joe Haden can cover like a blanket, he is a Jaguar in my draft.
Here is my one caveat, I still want Trent Williams. I can put up with a passing percentage if I can watch a guy throw pancake blocks all game. With Trent Williams, we won’t be playing defense all that long anyway. We won’t turn the ball over.
Draft Jimmy Clausen? Fine, if that is what you guys believe, fine. I want real solutions to real problems. I am needs drafting in the tenth spot. Give me someone who can help us win.
Enjoy the draft folks, here is the link. CBS Sports Mock Draft
