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.

2008 NFL Draft rankings

I'm enjoying the cold weather here (there's no such thing as "sarcasm" font on this computer) in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine. Since speculation mode is in full swing, I figured the football nuts would find these rankings interesting by NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock. How close are they to your rankings?

Anyway, stay tuned to the blog throughout the combine. I'll try to post interesting happenings. There was a James "Shack" Harris sighting this morning, but no other Jaguars officials have traipsed through the hallway here at the Indianapolis Convention Center.
