The Jaguars have had 74 draft picks over the past 10 years, yet have selected a quarterback just once. All but two of the remaining NFL teams have selected at least three quarterbacks over that span.

The Jaguars' reluctance to address the most important position on the field is a trend that has to change this year, writes Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette. The Jaguars have to draft one -- and maybe even two -- quarterbacks this May.

Frenette writes that it's nearly impossible to conceive a scenario in which the Jaguars bypass a quarterback in the first two rounds. "They can't stick to a quarterback draft strategy that has been stubborn, if not idiotic, for way too long."

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The T-U's Hays Carlyon writes that linebacker Paul Posluszny enjoyed his first Pro Bowl experience and is eager to return. Here's more from Posluszny from John Oehser of Jaguars.com.

The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran writes that the price to retain pass-rusher Michael Bennett is rising and it may become too much for Seattle, which has to have cap room to re-sign Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman -- all of whom are key players still on their rookie contracts. The Jaguars should take a long look at Bennett, O'Halloran writes.

Here's my story on former Auburn defensive end Dee Ford, who was the South MVP of the Senior Bowl. His goal is to be the next Lawrence Taylor.

Most of the 320 players in an NFL Nation confidential survey said they'd play in the Super Bowl with a concussion. Nine of the 10 Jaguars players surveyed said the same thing.
