Jacksonville Jaguars: Jared Allen

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock falls in line with most of the other draft analysts: He sees the Jaguars going quarterback or pass-rusher with the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

But, as Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union writes, there's no slam dunk among the quarterbacks, so what the Jaguars do depends on how much GM David Caldwell grows to like one of the QBs over the next several months.

"Do they fall in love with one of those three quarterbacks, and is he available at three?" Mayock said. "That's the first question. The second need after quarterback becomes an edge rusher. At three, depending on the quarterback situation, if their guys isn't there [Jadeveon] Clowney or [Khalil] Mack makes a ton of sense to me."

Mayock also had several other things to say about the Jaguars during a conference call on Tuesday. He said offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is one of the league's better young quarterback coaches, likes right guard Austin Pasztor, and said the Jaguars also need to address the interior of the offensive line.

If the Jaguars do want to draft a quarterback, they apparently will only have to worry about what the Houston Texans do with the top pick in the draft. St. Louis coach Jeff Fischer said Tuesday that Sam Bradford will continue to be the Rams' starter, which all but assures that the Rams aren't going to take a quarterback with the No. 2 pick.

Tennessee Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith said the team is shaking things up this offseason because the status quo is unacceptable.

RTC: Eugene Monroe gets noticed

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars offensive tackle Eugene Monroe is one of the NFL's most under-the-radar players.

At least, that's according to CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco, who tabbed Monroe to his 2013 All-Prisco Team. It's a list of players who meet a certain criteria, with one of the most important being players must be 26 years old or younger. Monroe, whom the Jaguars selected with the eighth overall pick in 2009, is 26.

What sets Monroe apart, Prisco writes, is his commitment to nutrition, variety of workouts, and his development into a quality pass protector and good run blocker. He proved that in the Jaguars' game against Minnesota last season when he dominated Jared Allen.

Here are some other pieces of content from around the web in the Jaguars' version of Reading the Coverage:

The Jaguars' official website mic'd up defensive end Jason Babin during last Saturday's game against Philadelphia. Listen to what he had to say here.

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran writes that receiver Justin Blackmon believes he's going to be able to handle his four-game suspension just fine. Coaches have seen some positive signs from Blackmon, but he has let the team down before.

Kicker Josh Scobee hasn't been as accurate this preseason as he normally is because his timing was off working with three long snappers. Now that the Jaguars have settled on Carson Tinker, he's feeling more comfortable, writes Vito Stellino of the Times-Union.

Stellino also writes that the Jaguars still have half the players from last season's 2-14 team heading into the final cuts this weekend.
