Post-Draft Outlook: COULD SURPRISE: Defensive end Austin Lane: At 6-foot-6, 272 pounds, Lane could prove to be the Jaguars' answer at a woefully weak position for the team a year ago. If 2008 first-round draft pick Derrick Harvey doesn't take his play up several levels this season, Lane could replace him in the starting lineup.
A closer look at the Jaguars' picks: Round 5/153 -- Austen Lane, DE, 6-5, 274, Murray State, Was part of deal in which Jaguars sent fourth-round pick to Oakland for MLB Kirk Morrison. Lane will challenge for a starting spot so this move could result in two Jaguars starters for a fourth-round pick. - by The Sports Xchange
