Default Jags draft notes

Quote:
Minutes after he had made his final pick of the 2007 draft, James Harris stood back and surveyed his work.

“We think we addressed several needs. We feel we added depth and competition. We added some speed at wide receiver and we got a play-making safety,” Harris told reporters.

It is, to say the least, a most interesting collection of football talent that Harris, coach Jack Del Rio and the Jaguars personnel department assembled. What’s so interesting about it? Here’s what.

* In third-round pick Mike Walker and seventh-rounder John Broussard, the Jaguars drafted two players who immediately become the fastest wide receivers on the team. Walker ran a 4.35 at the scouting combine and Harris said Broussard had run a 4.34 for the Jaguars.
* If speed was the theme – when isn’t it the theme? – the Jaguars also added a couple of linebackers who can run. Seventh-rounder Chad Nkang offers the potential to be a special teams demon, while second-rounder Justin Durant is right in the Jaguars’ mold of small, speedy, versatile linebackers.
* Fourth-round defensive end/linebacker Brian Smith is a risk/reward pick that offers a lot more reward than risk. Smith was on his way to the Big 12 all-time sacks record last season when he broke his hip. He actually played on it for three games until it was diagnosed. The Jaguars expect him to make a full recovery by training camp. They thought he might’ve been the best pure pass-rusher in the draft.
* First-round draft choice Reggie Nelson addresses an immediate need at safety and fifth-rounder Josh Gattis offers long-term depth and competition at the position. Can you say set for a long time at safety?
* Fourth-rounder Adam Podlesh should erase the punting problem.
* Fifth-rounder Uche Nwaneri and seventh-rounder Andrew Carnahan are offensive linemen for the future.
* Fifth-round defensive tackle Derek Landri has a motor that just won’t quit
