[Social Robotics] [default] It seems that the national consensus for the Jacksonville Jaguars

NFL Draft is they will pick right tackle Jawaan Taylor with the seventh overall pick. Well Mens Jawaan Taylor Jersey , there is that one..."It seems that the national consensus for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2019 NFL Draft is they will pick right tackle Jawaan Taylor with the seventh overall pick. Well, there is that one purposefully out of left field pick made that won’t happen, but by and large everyone has the Jaguars picking a right tackle. The closer we get to the draft however, and the more the consensus is a right tackle the less I think that’s what the Jaguars will do with their pick.I mentioned it before to not sleep on a defensive lineman for the Jaguars in the No. 7 spot and as we get closer the more I think that’s absolutely what the pick is going to be. The team has brought in a lot of pass rushers for pre-draft visits and interestingly did absolutely nothing in free agency on the defensive line. Compare that to say tight end where a few players were signed or right tackle where they signed two guys to compete, they did absolutely nothing on the defensive line.While I think everyone agrees that the Jaguars defensive line is good and talented, I do think people are sleeping on it’s need for fresh depth/guys who will play snaps. The team moved Dante Fowler Jr. midseason and they released Malik Jackson after the season in an expected cap cutting move. While Fowler was a disappointing first round pick, he was still a contributor to the pass rush and his contribution does need to be replaced and addressed. As for as Jackson, the Jaguars did draft Taven Bryan in 2018, but his rookie season was a whole lot of nothing.People constantly point to the 2017 season as proof of what the Jaguars defense can carry them to with even just bang average quarterback play and a solid run game. What is not being translated with that in 2019 however is that Folwer and Jackson combined for 16 sacks that season. Where is that coming from now? Are you getting that from Dawuane Smoot and Taven Bryan? I don’t think so.You also have to approach the point that Yannick Ngakoue is going into the final year of his rookie season and Calais Campbell is going to be one year older. I don’t think we will see a big drop of from Campbell yet and I do think the team re-signs Ngakoue prior to the start of the 2019 season, but these are still things you have to have in your mind.This is a draft that is top heavy on the defensive line with what a lot of people consider elite talent, so if you’re right there and one falls in your lap Black Jawaan Taylor Jersey , it’s the perfect blend of value and need. While I think someone like T.J. Hockenson would be a fine pick at No. 7, I don’t think the gap in talent between he and whatever tight ends will be there in rounds two and three are so significant of a drop off that you have to take Hockenson in the Top 10. I feel the exact same way for Jonah Williams and Jawaan Taylor. Not to mention if it wasn’t for the Jaguars picking Taylor because they need a right tackle, I struggle to see him getting drafted in the Top 15. Is he really that good at right tackle to be a Top 10 pick?On the flip side the drop off from the defensive line from pick seven to pick 38 has a huge drop off. If you want one of the elite ones, you have to pick them early. Yes, I know that Ngakoue was a third round pick, but mid-round great pass rushers are few and far between. Those guys, much like quarterbacks, get snapped up quickly because they’re so important. Also, and this will probably stir up a lot of debate, but I just don’t think right tackle or tight end matter all that much. If you have a good enough right tackle and a good enough tight end, you never think about them. You do not need elite players at those positions to have success. Like Jawaan Taylor Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , can you name the best right tackle in the NFL off the top of your head? Can you name the fourth best tight end off the top of your head? It’s great to have players like Travis Kelce or Rob Gronkowski, but there’s a big pile of guys who are just fine after them and truth be told that’s all you need. In a way, they’re kind of like running back. You can find running backs. You can find right tackles and tight ends littered throughout the draft.At pass rusher, you need elite players to have success. All those yellow flags thrown against the Jacksonville Jaguars have coach Doug Marrone seeing red.The Jaguars (3-8) have been penalized 80 times, tying them for seventh in the NFL, and have been docked the fourth-most yards (751).But Marrone’s main concern is that Jacksonville has been called for a league-leading 22 personal fouls, none more costly than running back Leonard Fournette’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty last week at Buffalo.Marrone is clearly frustrated with his team’s undisciplined ways.“It has been addressed and obviously further steps have to be taken for us,” Marrone said.Pressed for details, Marrone said he will “talk about it with the team.”More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars get help for Nick Foles with signings of WR Chris Conley, RT Cedric OgbuehiIt’s official: Jaguars agree to terms with Super Bowl MVP QB Nick FolesJaguars, guard A.J. Cann agree to terms on 3-year contractJaguars reportedly agree to 4-year Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys Stitched , $88 million deal with QB Nick FolesJaguars cut 5 veterans, including defensive lineman Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun GipsonFournette was tossed late in the third quarter Sunday and suspended one game without pay a day later for leaving the sideline, running across the field and instigating a fight with Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson. Fournette and Lawson exchanged punches before being separated.“Just got to grow up, you know,” Jags defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “I think he understands what he did and how he messed it up.”Without the team’s best offensive player, Jacksonville failed to score from inside the Buffalo 1-yard line on first down and then got called for consecutive penalties that left the offense facing second-and-goal from the 17. The Jags failed to do much from there and then missed a 42-yard field goal that would have put them ahead 17-14.Adding to Marrone’s angst, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (face mask) and safety Barry Church (unnecessary roughness) were flagged on Buffalo’s next two plays 鈥?both 15-yarders that set up the Bills’ go-ahead touchdown.“The way the team plays is a reflection on me,” Marrone said. “I understand that. I always have. I’ve always taken a lot of pride in having a well-disciplined, smart football team and obviously I’m not getting that done.“I’ve been through that before. We’ve been able to overcome that, and I think when we do Youth Jawaan Taylor Jersey , then we have a better opportunity to win football games. There are measures you can take that you hope you don’t have to get there and I’m probably getting them too late. I wasn’t expecting that out of our football team in Year 2.”The Jaguars have little room for error because of offensive struggles related to poor quarterback play, average receivers and mounting injuries. Penalties only make it more difficult for them to move the chains and score.Tom Coughlin, the team’s executive vice president of football operations and Marrone’s boss, also called out players for their conduct.“The way we behave on the field, I mean, it’s ridiculous some of the penalties,” Coughlin told 1010XL during a charity fundraiser earlier this week. “So there’s a lot of things that are going to get addressed and are being addressed.”Marrone doesn’t believe benching players or fining them is the answer, noting that “education and learning give you a better chance long term for those things not to occur.”“There are a lot of combinations of how to fix it,” he added. “But we’re looking to fix it right overnight, yes.”Jacksonville, which has lost seven consecutive games Mens Jawaan Taylor Jersey , hosts Indianapolis (6-5) on Sunday. The Colts have won five in a row, including a 29-26 victory against the Jags three weeks ago.Marrone fired offensive coordinator Nathanial Hackett and benched quarterback Blake Bortles on Monday. He also made it clear more changes could be on the horizon if the team doesn’t end its losing streak 鈥?and cut down on the personal fouls.“It’s basically just going to be an end result; you either get it done or you don’t get it done,” Marrone said. “If it’s not good enough for the people you work for, then hey, they’re going to let you go. We all know that. It’s nothing to hold your head down about or nothing to feel bad about. It’s like anything else. I walk in around here, it’s embarrassing, it’s frustrating.“But at the end of the day, there has to be leadership somewhere. Someone has to step up, someone has to go and lead. … I’m never going to drop my head. I’m working my butt off to do the best job I can. I think as long as you can do that and you don’t sulk or make excuses or anything, I can look myself in the mirror and know I did everything I can.”
