The Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to make another splash on Draft Night by selecting WR Justin Blackmon. The top ranked receiver of the draft,  Blackmon caught 121 balls for over 1500 yards. He brings star power to a receiving corps that was severely lacking in 2011 and he energizes a fanbase that has tired of dull offenses. The Jaguars only gave up a 4th round pick (101st overall) in order to move up, but if Gabbert-to-Blackmon becomes a major pairing, it will be completely worth the price.
