The Fansided.com mock draft for this week is out and the Jacksonville Jaguars come away with a player that a lot of people are suspecting could be the pick. West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith is coming to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
At least if you trust writer Josh Sanchez.
Almost all the choices for the second overall pick have been discussed inside and out by fans, the media, armchair GMs, and draftniks and Smith seems to make as much sense as any other pick and could be the most logical move for the Jaguars if they think that he is their guy.
Here’s what Sanchez has to say about the pick:
There is some belief that the current Jaguars regime is not sold on Blaine Gabbert and Smith could give them the potential franchise signal-caller they are looking for. There are a lot of options for the Jaguars with this pick, but it’s hard to see them passing on Smith if they believe he can be the quarterback that Gabbert never turned out to be.
Even non-Jaguar specific sites have come around to the reasoning that Smith is the fit if the Jaguars see him as the guy. But do the Jaguars believe he can be the guy? We’ll have to wait and see later this month.
