2012 NFL Draft: 5 Receivers the Jacksonville Jaguars Should Target

The Jacksonville Jaguars currently sport one of the most limited groups of wide receivers in the NFL.

Through three weeks, the trio of Mike Thomas, Jason Hill and Cecil Shorts have been completely ineffective, and will have the Jaguars in need of a true playmaker in April's draft.

Most fans in Jacksonville are clamoring for the Jaguars to spend a first-round pick on either Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State or Alshon Jeffery of South Carolina, but that seems like a long shot.

Currently, the Jaguars have an equally pressing need on the defensive side of the football, and I expect them to find Aaron Kampman's eventual replacement in a prospect like Brandon Jenkins of Florida State. General Manager Gene Smith passed on a pass rusher in the 2011 Draft for Blaine Gabbert, and I don't expect that to happen again with a defensive-minded GM like Smith.

There is plenty of value at receiver in this year's class, and I expect the Jaguars could address that need as early as the second round, when Blackmon and Jeffery will likely be off the board.

Here are the five receivers I expect the Jaguars to entertain in the 2012 NFL Draft.
