Coaches felt one reason they played well this weekend was because the Jags didn't know what to expect with Alexander, Wilson, and Jackson.
That's surprising about Blackmon. I know AJ Green is amazing, but IMO Blackmon is more physical, and not too far behind talent wise. I think if you're going to be a sure-fire first round pick, you gotta go pro. You can always go get your degree once you've made your millions and taken care of your family.

I like the idea of trading down, as long as we're still targeting a QB that we plan on making "the guy." We need more picks. I'm all about moving down in the 1st round if it nets us another 1st or 2nd rounder. Good points about Rak. If we're all in on this switch to a 3-4, we need a lot of new personnel.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

We definitely need another strong pass rusher.

Looks like a competitor to me. I think he'll look good with NFL talent around him. Potential franchis QB.

That would be the bomb Matty if we could get a Suh type of guy to help out Orakpo. Luck and Green are gone for sure, and probably the QB from Missouri. Tony Shaw has bumped him up to the second best QB in the draft as of last night. That could change if Newton shoots some duck next week. I think if the Mizzou QB stays in we can get him next season or get a potential steal in the 2nd or 3rd round in a guy like Persa(if healthy), or some similar QB talent that is solid.

Only a few SS... I've been on other projects, but I watched Locker last night. I think with talent around him and some good coaching he'll be a pro bowl QB in the NFL.

His passing stats were not impressive, but he forced no throws and is very athletic.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Call me crazy but I'm actually pretty happy that Locker didn't play well, at least passing wise, against Nebraska. I mean the guy already has four years of tape, so technically the impact of a meaningless bowl game should be minimal. Plus thanks to the large sample size we can actually get a better idea of what type of player we'll be drafting come April, unlike certain QB's that are currently protected by small sample sizes. By the way I'm actually pulling for a certain QB to blow up at a certain Fiesta so his stock is JaMarcus Russel high by the time April roles around.

Not to mention the fact that we now won't only have to trade up but now we might even be able to trade back and recoup draft picks.

Anyway the fact of the matter is that there were probably a lot of teams that were already gunshy about Locker and the teams lacking great offensive coaches/system/players are probably going to end up looking elsewhere for a signal caller.

Suh is a frickin' animal but remember, we're running a 3-4 defense and a guy like him really would waste his talent in that style of defense. We need big stout linemen that can keep blockers off of the linebackers. Another pass rushing LB is a need and a damn free safety would be nice. A play making receiver would be helpful and interior offensive line help is an absolute must.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Day two sleeper: Mike Pouncey

Put him back at guard and we've got a potential pro-bowler that's awesome in space.

What? Day 2? Are you sure you don't mean second round, because Pouncey comes with a first round grade like his brother.
