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.

What's next?

The Jaguars still need help at safety and could use some depth inside at defensive tackle. What will the club do in Round 2?

I said the Jags would take Arkansas St. safety Tyrell Johnson if they stayed at No. 26 and they're probably hoping he'll still be available when they pick in the second round (he won't be by the way).

Coming into the draft, one of the major decision makers on the team told me the club would take either Johnson or USC DE Lawrence Jackson if they stayed at No. 26. It would be interesting to see what the club would do if both Johnson and Jackson (scratch that, Seattle just took him) are available when the Jags pick 27th in the second round (58 overall). Anything can happen, and after all, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio didn't expect his team to be able to move up 18 spots to take Derrick Harvey at No. 8.

"Actually to be perfectly honest, this wasn't one that we envisioned we would be able to entertain," he said. "We were obviously making all the contacts and letting it be known that we were willing if it was doable, something that we felt that was palatable that we would do it. We weren't going to give away our whole draft."
