I called this pick way back in December in my “missing link” article. I gave you all the pros about drafting Blackmon with the Jaguars first round selection. I have heard & read many nay-sayers dismissing Blackmon as the possible pick. There was no doubt in my mind that the Jags would get Blackmon, no matter what. They moved up 2 places to insure they got him before the Rams did. This is a HUGE pick for the Jaguars, GM Gene Smith, Blaine Gabbert & the true fans whom believe that this team is being built correctly & for long term winning.
Anyone who thought for a minute that the Jaguars were really considering Gilmore, Ingram, Couples or any of the other players that the so-called experts have been force feeding us for weeks now….please get a clue. NO WAY Khan doesn’t get help for Gabbert, especially after getting only Robinson & Evans in free agency. This is how you do it people, you go get your guy. The Jags did it with Gabbert & now they’ve done it with Blackmon. The Jags WILL improve & Gabbert WILL make losers like Mike Lombardi eat his words…..and Blackmon WILL be a huge part of that. The jaguars would never have made this move under the lame leadership of Del Rio. Thank You Mr. Khan.Thank You coach Mularkey. GO JAGS !!!!
