The Jaguars are looking at a deep Defensive Line draft class and hoping to pull in one of the top pass rushers. While the Jaguars have other needs including the secondary, being in the AFC South means they need to improve their pass rush. Could the Jaguars make this another Defense heavy draft class as they did last year. Right now, only GM Gene knows that for sure, but I think it is a safe bet that the majority of the players the Jags pick up will be on the Defensive side of the ball.
GM Gene is the key to those things happening. He has to find a big-time pass rusher who can make an immediate impact in this year's draft. With this year's thin secondary draft class, I don't think GM Gene can find what he wants or needs this year so he'll have to look to Free Agency, if there is such a thing this year. Del Rio was interviewed at the Combine and gushed when asked about the chances the Jaguars had at getting Bob Sanders. He was so excited, I almost thought he had some side deal with Sanders to sign with the Jaguars, but I think that was more desperation than optimism. Here's to hoping that a deal can get done with Sanders before March 3.
