The SB Nation two-round NFL mock draft continues along with each lead NFL team blogger making the pick for their team. We're into the second round and the Jacksonville Jaguars are back up with the No. 38 pick.
With the 38th pick in the 2012 SB Nation NFL Writers Mock Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick.
Few of the team-specific sites in the SB Nation NFL family cover the draft better than Big Cat Country, our Jaguars site. With Jags General Manager Gene Smith often going off the radar with picks, these guys have to search every corner of the football world for news and tidbits. So check those guys out at BigCatCountry.com for in-depth coverage of the Jaguars. Find their explanation of the pick and my response after the jump.
Big Cat Country breaks it down: The Jaguars need to add to their receiving corps after picking up a defensive end in the first round. The team needs a bigger receiver added to their line up after picking up Laurent Robinson in free agency, who can stretch the field. Quick adds a player with size to the team who can also add another big red zone threat for Blaine Gabbert. Quick is also a high potential type player who’s still a bit raw and will need refining, but early on his size and strong hands will get him into the lineup.
Dan Kadar responds: If your theory on mock drafts is trying to predict what a team will do, this is spot on. Over the past three drafts, the Jaguars have picked nine non-FBS players. So both in regard to targeting correctly and filling a need, this works. There are some better wide receivers out there – namely Alshon Jeffery and Mohamed Sanu – but Quick would be a suitable foil for Robinson.
