SBN Exclusive Interview With Coach Jack Del Rio

SB Nation and our Jacksonville Jaguars blog, Big Cat Country, had the privilege of talking to head coach Jack Del Rio in an exclusive interview about a wide array of subjects. Coach Del Rio was gracious enough to discuss current players, game philosophies, the upcoming offseason; almost anything that had  to do with the Jaguars. One of the stories surrounding the Jags this offseason is the prospect of drafting Florida QB Tim Tebow. We asked about that prospect and Coach answered ...

Big Cat Country:  You are prepared, I assume,  for the off-season of incessant questions about Tim Tebow?  I don't want to bring him up directly, but he's going to be a common question of the next few years.  You can't throw a stick without someone in the national media saying that if the Jaguars don't draft Tim Tebow, all hope is lost and the team is all but moved to LA.  This of course often comes from the mouth of the same guy who said that Derek Cox was undraftable.

Jack Del Rio: Yeah, all of that kind of shakes out in the wash.  You'd have to have your head in the sand to not know that you're gonna field those kind of questions.  Everywhere I go people say "I know you can't talk about it Coach, but can we get Tebow?".  It's just constant, you know you're gonna get it.  I know how [GM] Gene [Smith] feels, we're going to go through the process and rank our players and you take one in each round and you wait and 31 other teams get an opportunity to draft.  It's not like recruiting in college where the player can choose where he wants to go, there's a draft process that he'll be a part of, along with the other different players who are draft eligible.  So different teams will stack their board as they see it and he'll come off the board wherever he matches up where a team feels he meets a need.  I know they'll be a lot of conversation about that.
