Mel's 2014 Big Board and the Jaguars
By Paul Kuharsky
The Jacksonville Jaguars are not likely to be a very good team in 2013.
They are likely to need a quarterback in 2014.
So when Mel Kiper comes out with his initial Big Board of 2014 draft prospects, it makes sense to talk a bit about the guy who, at this stage, looks most likely to be the top quarterback available in the next NFL draft.
That is Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater.
Says Kiper of Bridgewater:
"He's not a finished product, but that's what should excite evaluators about Bridgewater. Bridgewater never looks overwhelmed, and comfortably works his eyes across the field. When he sees a target -- or more likely, a receiver who will come open -- he has a quick release, plenty of arm strength and good ball placement. He has a chance to have a huge year."
It'd be terribly difficult for the Jaguars, or any team, to pass on South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The Jaguars may have to.
