Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Jags on the clock again.

The Jaguars are on the clock again for their second-round pick. What direction do the Jags take this time?

I am convinced that Jacksonville has the worst front office in the League. Leftwich is terrible and a team cannot win without a good QB. The the empty seats and blackouts will continue.

Here is some info from draft insiders. This looks like a classic Shack Harris pick (like R. Mathis).

Justin Durant - LB - 6’1" 230 lbs. - Hampton - Sp. 4.5
Athletic small college linebacker has been an outstanding defender throughout his college career at the D1AA level. He is a fast linebacker who played the Mike position in college but also projects to the Wil position in the 4-3 base defense. His forte is chasing sideline to sideline making tackles. He has safety type speed with top instincts that allow him to stay clean and run to the ball and finish plays. He put up incredible numbers especially over his final two seasons when he ranked with any small college defender in the nation. He is best suited for the Wil linebacker role in the 4-3 defensive scheme and will have to go through an adjustment period for that position, though he showed the AA and natural instincts for the position. At the NFL Combine, he tested out very well and that strong effort will probably warrant a 1st day selection.

Our season tickets will not be bought again this year...this is ridiculous. It seems they don't want to win or even compete. Get rid of the whole front office, pretty boy Del Rio, and Leftwich now.

I am not the big draft expert like Jack Delrio and James Harris,but I know one thing this draft is starting to emit a foul odor! Somebody please tell me how you can pass up on Quinn and pick Nelson? I mean the Jaguars line.."He was the best fit for our team" Are you kidding me! Am I the only Jag fan who thought the main problem was the Q.B.( and who ever filled in) and the receivers? The problem was not the defense! I know you have to replace players lost, but you just can't pass on a player like Quinn.I am afraid Wayne your going to have more tarps at the games than fans!I have been a ticket holder since the beginning,all we want as any fans would, is a front office who can pick players (besides the second round).

I know passing up Quinn may not be a popular choice, but you saw teams who had an immediate need to address at the QB position that looked him over.

Perhaps that should be considered before anyone calls it a mistake, but no one will really know until years down the road.

The Jags have at least one year before that really becomes an issue and it would have created more dissension by picking Quinn.

They have decided they can compete with the personnel they have in place and did not make the mistake of drafting based on the hype machine.
