Jags get a C+ in the Draft Says Yahoo Sports

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports has graded the draft, and the Jags in his eyes have earned a C+.  Here is the breakdown:  

Picks: DE Derrick Harvey, DE Quentin Groves, LB Thomas Williams, CB Trae Williams, RB Chauncey Washington
Positives: Harvey and Groves
Negatives: Gave away took many draft picks.
Bottom line: C+. This is not a criticism of the players the Jaguars took. Harvey is one of the most dynamic pass rushers in the draft, capable of playing both outside and inside. He’s going to be a force. Groves is only a step or two behind. However, how quickly will these guys make it? The Jags are in position to compete for a title and there’s a good argument that they could have nabbed Dolphins DE Jason Taylor with some of those picks. It’s a pretty good bet that Taylor will have more sacks over the next two years than either Harvey or Groves. Maybe more than them combined.

    Why would the Jags trade draft picks for a veteran DE (Jason Taylor) who was contiplating retirment last year. He has been beaten up for the past 12 years now, and is losing a step. The Jags have a proven playoff team already, does not matter who is on the field. I love the Jags pics and it deserves an A or B+.

    Go Jags

    I also agree with the Jaguars’ picks and believe that both Top SEC Defensive Ends will dominate the competition. Jason Taylor is old and to me seems like a “popular name pick” than a player that can really help us. I would rate the draft as a B.
