With Toby Gerhart on the roster and Bishop Sankey being picked earlier, this seems like a luxury pick. The fact of the matter is the Jaguars need playmakers period, and Dri Archer has the speed the Jaguars have lacked since Maurice Jones-Drew’s rookie year. He can contribute as a punt/kick returner and as a receiver out of the backfield. Jedd Fisch will find a way to use him effectively.
