Jags Get Their Man
According to reports Baltimore and Minnesota were working a deal. However, the Ravens couldn't workout something with the Vikings before the 15 minute allotment expired. Because of this situation, it put Jacksonville on the clock. The Jaguars wasted no time by immediately rushing their card to the commissioner and selecting quarterbacks Bryon Leftwich.
Despite the injury last season, Leftwich passed for 4,268 yards, 30 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. In 2001, Leftwich compiled 4,132 yards, 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions for the Thundering Herd.
The 6-foot-5 and 240 pound standout has all the intangibles that NFL coaches are seeking. He probably has the most accurate arm in the draft. His arm strength and his ability to make good decisions have put him over the top.
Leftwich, who missed part of his senior season with a leg injury, might have been the top player in the draft if it weren't for his injury.
Jaguar front-office man James Harris was good on his word of taking the best available player available. Shortly after selecting Leftwich, Harris told ESPN, that Mark Brunell will most likely be the Jaguar quarterback for the next couple of seasons but that the Marshall quarterback was too good to pass up.
Jacksonville is sitting in a perfect quarterback situation. Brunell can lead the Jags while Leftwich can take his time his time and learn from the 10-year veteran without being thrown into the fire.
