The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled another fast one, trading back up into the 3rd round to select Brandon Linder. Linder, a guard from Miami, should come in right away and compete for the right guard position. In order to grab Linder, the Jags sent picks 105 and 179 to the New England Patriots.
As always, here are Jaguars fans and media Twitter reactions.
Joeckel vs. Clowney. Linder vs. Nix.

Seriously the Jags could just put the rest of this draft on autodraft and I’d be so excited.

I always liked Linder. Thought he could be had in the 5th, but Jedd signed off, we wanted him. Let’s roll.

Jags five up fourth and sixth round picks to New England to take guard Brandon Linder in third round. The Jags going for offense in draft.

The Jaguars had to get a center, and Linder is the next guy in line. It makes sense. GRADE: B- http://t.co/KPxAyHqyNs
