Jaguars Looking to Get Speedier

It has been more than rumored that the Jaguars need to get better at the wide receiver position. With the team spending all of last week at the Senior Bowl, coaching the South team, they've had an opportunity to do some in-depth scouting on many players. Find out which receiver was certainly eye-popping.

The most productive receiver in Saturday night's Senior Bowl was Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias. Iglesias caught six passes for 90 yards, including a 41-yard strike. The Sooners best receiver throughout the season had a very good week of practice in Mobile, and he may have had an advantage as he worked out with a couple of the North team quarterbacks.

"I actually train with Graham Harrell and Rhett (Bomar)," Iglesias told in an exclusive interview. "I think it's helped me a little bit, get the timing down but you can't get that much by just being out here for a couple days."

Iglesias finished his senior season on the country's most explosive offense with 74 catches for 1150 yards and 10 touchdowns. The speedy, 6'0", 204 lb. Texas native has a modest personality and is far from a "chest-thumper," despite having that type of ability.

"My first day out here I was a little rocky just trying to make sure I did the right plays, but I think I moved past that," Iglesias said following a North team practice. "Today I just tried to put my best foot forward with all the coaches and being out here for the last day I'm just trying to get better and better."

When asked about who the best corner he lined up against in practice was, Iglesias quickly replied, "Victor (Macho) Harris, he's a good player." When lined up against Harris, Iglesias more than held his own, making several plays all week long.

Juaquin is currently projected to be a late first-day pick, as he has reportedly run a 4.4 40-yard dash. If the Jaguars alter their philosophy of drafting the big, tall, red-zone types of receivers, Iglesias may be the player for them.
