QB, MATTHEW STAFFORD, GEORGIA

Jacksonville Jaguars

Round 1, Pick #8 overall

GM gunnermc

 

 

Details of the pick after the jump...

No time like the present to find a QB.

From GM  gunnermc:  The Jaguars are torn between Stafford and Sanchez, but decide on
Stafford because of his tremendous upside. Fans need to understand
this pick is NOT a replacement to our very talented starting QB David
Garrard. Matthew Stafford is being drafted to compete with and learn
from our starter. When he's prepared a few years down the road he
will take the reigns. We also understand we have major holes at WR
and O-line, we feel our organization has been blessed with Matthew
Stafford falling in our hands at pick number 8! He's from right up
the road and will be considered a local hero, and fan favorite!

*****

Commish's Thoughts:  Whichever QB is deemed the top guy on the board, Sanchez or Stafford, there is no doubt that the Jaguars are in a great bargaining position at #8, since a few QB hungry teams will start cropping up behind them.  I would like this pick more if it was posturing to force a trade that allows the Jags to move back a bit and think about O-line, but I can't argue with taking Stafford in the top ten.  He has a heck of an arm, and could very well impress enough to start as a rookie, and help to bring the Jags offense to another level on his savvy and arm strength alone.  The downside to this pick?  If you actually NEED Stafford to pan out as a value, you would have to be sweating when you turned in a card with his name on it....

ON THE CLOCK

The Green Bay Packers are up next.  There is still some elite talent on the board, but will it make it out of the top 10?  Malcolm Jenkins comes to mind here...

The deadline for this pick is 6pm MST, March 25th.  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
