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.
