Is the seventh pick a particularly bad one?

By Paul Kuharsky

My eyes were on my iPhone as usual at lunch today -- tasty fajitas, by the way -- and I was struck by this National Football Post piece by Greg Gabriel.

He posits that there may be just six premium playersin the draft: quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, tackle Matt Kalil, cornerback Morris Claiborne, running back Trent Richardson and receiver Justin Blackmon.

If that is, in fact, how things stack up and the extent of the elite or premium guys, then No. 7 is a terrible draft slot unless there is a major bobble ahead of it.

The Jacksonville Jaguars sit with the seventh pick.

Let’s look at that in the best and worst possible lights.
Do you agree with the idea that the premium territory of this draft is six players deep? Is it more? Less? Chime in on the poll and below.
