Gus Bradley and Shad Kahn could be looking for a franchise QB
Once again the results were conclusive. With over 50 votes tallied, Sammy Watkins took an even 50% to be the 2nd overall selection for the St. Louis Rams. Strangely, even though St. Louis has Sam Bradford, Blake Bortles received the second most votes. Next on the clock is Jacksonville.
Last year, newly hired head coach Gus Bradley wasn’t given much of a roster to work with. The Jaguars finished 4-12, but the team did show significant improvements at the end of the season, especially on defense. Jacksonville has been very active this offseason resigning Jason Babin, Will Blackmon, and Chad Henne. They added DEs Chris Clemons and Ziggy Hood, DT Red Bryant, OG Zane Beadles, and RB Toby Gerhart. With C Alex Mack inked to an offer sheet and 11 picks in the upcoming draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars stand to be the most improved team in the NFL.
Despite all the offseason acquisitions, Jacksonville still has a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. Chad Henne is not the future at QB, so could they draft one of the top QBs? Gus Bradley is a defensive-minded coach, could he want to add Khalil Mack to a linebacking core that already has a stable vet in the middle in Paul Posluszny? Do they reach for a WR like Mike Evans, or do they try to solidify the O-Line with Jake Matthews?
