Round Five: Where Do Jaguars Go Now?

The Jaguars addressed their most desperate need yesterday as they traded up to acquire defensive ends Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves. The cost of fixing their pass rush equated to most of their second-day selections, and now the team is left with just two fifth-round picks at picks #143 and #159 respectively. So what are they going to do with what they have left? JagNation shares some thoughts

It appears that the Jaguars are likely done with their dealing, as their two remaining fifths don't equate to much more than a mid fourth-round pick. Never say never, but Jacksonville would have to likely package some more of next year's selections if they see a player they'd like to move up to get.

So assuming they stay put, here are a few prospects that the Jaguars could be writing on the draft card later today. Jacksonville needs to get younger at the quarterback position, and they would likely have an opportunity to develop someone. The team has been high on Hawaii's record-setting Colt Brennan, but don't count out Oregon's Dennis Dixon, who will likely need at least a year to recover from the torn ACL he suffered near the end of last season.

One player who could drop to Jacksonville in round five is the University of Kentucky's Wesley Woodyard. Woodyard is an undersized linebacker who is very speedy and active, and could be converted to strong safety. A few others that the Jaguars will keep their eyes on are Michigan's Jamar Adams and Arizona State's Josh Barrett, assuming they both fall.

Some other players of interest that could fit are University of Texas offensive tackle Tony Hills, Wake Forest center Steve Justice, USF linebacker Ben Moffitt. Stay tuned.
