The Jacksonville Jaguars have some pretty mixed-bag grades.  Sometimes they get a C+ and someone else from the same writing staff gives them an A.  We never really know how a draft class did until a few seasons into their careers, but that doesn’t stop us from taking a stab at it immediately.  Here are some grades from around the internet.

Fox Sports: A, C+, A+

  • Everyone seems pleased that the Jags didn’t attempt to get a quarterback in the seven rounds, but for some reason Alex Marvez thought the Jaguars needed an outside pass rusher more than starters in the secondary and at right tackle.

CBS Sports:  A-

  • Pete Prisco gives the Jaguars a pass on not picking a pass rusher in the first five rounds.  You can’t fix everything in one draft after all.  He likes Denard Robinson and he likes what the Jaguars got in Luke Joeckel.

Fansided: A

  • Josh Sanchez says John Cyprien is the best pick by the Jags and the worst pick is first-rounder Luke Jockel.  When your worst pick is an immediate starter and possibly the best lineman in the draft that isn’t all bad.  It’s more the positional value that make Joeckel a worse pick in the eyes of Sanchez.

NFL.com Fan Grade: B+

  • Since this is a fan grade and results continue to pour in, this one coud change.  The consensus, though, is that the Jaguars got a decent draft.  In fact, a B+ is the second highest grade handed out (tied with Cincinnati, Green Bay, Kansas City, San Francisco, and St. Louis) just behind the Minnesota Vikings with an A-.
