- It seems that Peter King was correct in his article. The trade-down market for the Jaguars died down.
- The Jaguars' next pick is at #38. overall. Many impact players are still left on the board such as TE Coby Fleener, WRs Rueben Randle and Stephen Hill, DEs Vinny Curry and Andre Branch and C Peter Konz..
- The Jaguars probably had a deal in place with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get Justin Blackmon well before the draft even started. To only give up a 4th round pick when the Cleveland Browns gave up a king's ransom to move up one spot shows a great deal of foresight by GM Gene Smith. Also interesting is how the Jaguars reportedly offered that same 4th round pick for hometown QB Tim Tebow last month. Taking Lee Evans from Buffalo last year (and there were quite a few fans that wanted him) would have also required a 4th round pick. Now, the Jaguars have Evans and Blackmon on the same team.
