Jacksonville May Want Out of the 16th Pick

The Jacksonville Jaguars are picking in an odd spot in the NFL draft this year. The 16th pick allows them shots at guys that could be big players for years to come, but there is also a big chance of a complete whiff. Gene Smith may be better served by trading down, and getting the guys that he wants most.

Jaguars Across the Web

As we move to the weekend, I thought I would send up a "Jaguars Across the Web," evening edition. And here you go.

Jack Del Rio talked to John Oehser about the potential rules changes.

John Oehser thinks we should "Relax. Smile. Enjoy life."

Jaguars Draft Prospects - Gabe Carimi

Jacksonville may have 2 franchise offensive tackles, but that shouldn't stop them from picking another big man if the opportunity arises. Let's take a look at a guy that should fall just behind the Jaguars' pick.

One Guy's Take on the Lockout

One of the great things about blogging with no affiliation to the NFL or any of the teams is that I can talk freely about anything. So, I'm going to throw out my thoughts on the NFL lockout. This isn't in an attempt to play the "fault game," but I won't spare my thoughts on the topic.

Special Teams Units are Being Devalued

I highlighted the proposed rule changes yesterday here. Today, I want to look at the potential rule changes that could affect kickoffs.

Derek Hughes' Mock Draft 2.0

1) Carolina Panthers- Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
Peterson is a freak athlete who has elite skills.  While quarterback is a big issue, there are to many holes to fill elsewhere.  Look for Jimmy Clausen to get one more year to prove himself.

NFL Putting Quarterbacks in Red Jerseys?

The NFL announced some of their proposed rule changes, and I have to say, I'm not impressed. In fact, the proposed changes would only serve to keep the offensive side of the ball dominant over the defense.

Jaguars Draft Prospects - Aaron Williams

It's no secret that one of the Jaguars' biggest needs this off-season is in the secondary, and more specifically at safety. Let's look at one of the top safety prospects.

Up to the Core

Gene Smith gutted the Jaguars roster after possibly the most disappointing season in team history. That was following the 2008 campaign. The Jaguars have spent the last two years acquiring new talent and building a core group of players. It'll be up to that group of guys to carry the Jaguars in 2011.

Jim Caldwell Speaks of Leadership at Ball State University

As I said earlier, Jim Caldwell gave a lecture over the qualities of leadership at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Your's truly was lucky enough to be in attendance, and I have to say, the Colts have a great leader.

Indianapolis Colts' head coach, Jim Caldwell is speaking tonight at Emens Auditorium in Muncie, IN at 7 PM tonight. Unless something comes up, I'll be there listening to what he has to say. Look for a post about the talk later tonight.

State of the AFC South

Let's face it, the league is in a state of limbo and uncertainty. Everyone knows that much. I think that now is as good of a time as any to take a look at the AFC South and how it's shaping up with the current CBA situation.

AFC South Across the Web

Sometimes, I think it's important to read up on the rest of the division, and for that reason, every now and then I'll do an AFC South across the web. Enjoy.

Jaguars Draft Prospects - Andy Dalton

As we move away from potential first round picks, I though it would be appropriate to look at potential second round quarterbacks, and Andy Dalton would seem to be a front runner to be picked by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jaguars need help in the secondary, and the next guy we look at could be the guy to come to the rescue.

Jags All Day Mock Draft 2.0

It's been about two weeks since I started releasing my mock draft 1.0. I think, and hopefully you agree, it's time to revise it, and with that, let's get to it.

Fine, Let's Talk 3-4

If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you've also read the article I wrote for The talk around the Jaguars' fan base seems to be about the possibility of a switching to a 3-4 defense. Let's get this out of the way, the Jaguars will not be running a 3-4 base defense in 2011. Now let's move on.
