Well, the draft is over and the lockout is back on. Still, there is reason for optimism among most NFL teams because of this draft.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that has been transformed after the haul they brought in this weekend.
The Jags made waves in the NFL when they moved up from No. 16 to No. 10 in order to take quarterback Blaine Gabbert with their first pick. Gabbert fell to No. 10 after the Titans picked Jake Locker over Gabbert at No. 8.
The Jags also upgraded the offensive line by adding Will Rackley from Lehigh. They added the speedy Cecil Shorts from Mount Union as well.
In addition, the Jags gave their secondary an overhaul by adding safety Christopher Prosinski and cornerback Roderick Issac from Mid Tennessee State.
Now, the Jags didn’t add defensive linemen or any linebackers, which are two areas that needed a lot of help. But adding Gabbert was a once-in-a-generation pick, and the Jags were lucky to get him.
