Draft Scout Snapshot: The Jaguars started out blazing, hitting their two biggest needs with two quality players in Justin Blackmon and Andre Branch. Blackmon provides the downfield threat that the team has lacked for several years now. Branch fills an equally big void as a pass-rushing defensive end. The selection of Bryan Anger in the third round was a major surprise, considering the team had so many other holes that needed to be addressed. The final three picks will provide help, but not likely as a starter. Based on the solid choices in the first two picks, this has to be considered a solid draft for the Jaguars. Had the third pick been as essential, this could have been a great draft for Jacksonville. BEST PICK: Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon: He should be the answer to the team's biggest need, that of having a quality wide receiver in the lineup. The Jaguars coveted Blackmon but were afraid he would be gone by the time of their pick. He brings a dimension to the passing game that the team sorely needed. - The Sports Xchange
