The Jaguars refused to wait for Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon at No. 8 overall, aggressively moving up to secure the big-time target Blaine Gabbert needs. Blackmon wasn't universally viewed as a Pro Bowl-caliber prospect but there is no denying he fills a huge area of concern in an offense and fan base desperate for playmakers. The Jaguars made a similar gamble that could pay off big in the second round with Clemson pass rusher Andre Branch, a talented athlete who just needs to play with more consistency. Investing a third-round pick in a punter will certainly draw the "anger" of some but make no mistake, Cal's Bryan Anger was getting similar grades from a number of teams and fills an area of concern. Linebacker Brandon Marshall and cornerback Mike Harris were overshadowed throughout their respective careers but were also highly regarded in the scouting community.
