Last season had its successes and failures for the Jaguars. Finishing with an 8-8 record is an accomplishment and should be looked at as such. They had some thrilling moments—"Mike Sims-Walker caught that Hail Mary where?!?!?"—and its overall frustrations—"they gave up how many yards to Reggie Wayne!?!?"
In the end, they finished the season in solid fashion, led primarily by the consistent play of Maurice Jones-Drew. They took a big step forward last season. The defense looked much better, the offense worked a little better (though Garrard was hot and cold) and, as a result, they won some football games.
This year the Jaguars can work to acquire some solid players, both through the draft and free agency.
In this mock draft, I'll attempt to address both their needs and how they might get the best player available with each selection.
Let's take a look.
