Jacksonville may be one of those teams that will look at the QB position..... later in the draft. Cam Newton MAY be around for this pick, but I think that he's more likely to go to Washington at #10 or Minnesota at #12. Even if he was around at this point, the Jaguars have other needs. As for the 16th pick, I think that they should work on defense. They're passing defense was pretty bad last year (27th overall, 23rd in INTs). From that aspect, Brandon Harris (CB/ Miami) should get some consideration here. However, part of the bad pass defense may be attributed to a lack of pass rush. Jacksonville ranked in the bottom three in the league in sacks (tied with Tampa and led only the Broncos). I think that area needs to be what the Jags look for here. I think that if he's available RYAN KERRIGAN (DE/ PURDUE) would be the ideal pick here. Basically, you have a sack machine coming out of the Big 10 with 13 sacks this past year (12 in 2009). So, that's my pick for the Jaguars. Hope it's useful!
