Great—another example of a poor draft choice by the Jacksonville Jaguars

It was announced today that they traded 2008 second round draft choice Quentin Groves to the Oakland Raiders. What the Jaguars got for unproductive defensive end is still unknown; perhaps a sixth or seventh round draft choice.

Clearly, Groves wasn't cutting it in Jacksonville. Many labeled Groves as soft and lazy. General manager Gene Smith and head coach Jack Del Rio both obviously gave up and moved him prior to tomorrow's 2010 NFL Draft.

The legacy of former GM Shack Harris has been costly for the Jaguars. This is just another example of how poor Harris drafted while in Jacksonville.

GM Smith did well in his first year having a solid draft in 2009. He has already brought in Aaron Kampman from the Green Bay Packers in free agency. Is the clock ticking even louder on DE Derrick Harvey?

How will Smith draft in 2010?  Will he look for another DE in the early rounds?  Stay tuned.
