Jacksonville Jaguars: Jarvis Landry

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have found their quarterback.

Now what?

It’s time to target some of the team’s other pressing needs in the second and third rounds on Friday. Two areas the Jaguars may address are center and wide receiver. Here’s a quick look at some of their options:


Players available: Weston Richburg, Marcus Martin, Bryan Stork, Russell Bodine, Travis Swanson.

The skinny: The Jaguars have said they have confidence in third-year pro Mike Brewster but they heavily pursued Alex Mack in free agency and there are rumblings that they are targeting Richburg and Martin in the second round. Richburg was on the North roster at the Senior Bowl so the Jaguars did not get a chance to work with him, but they did meet with him in Mobile, Alabama. Some draft analysts believe Richburg is talented and smart enough that he could step in and play right away. They had Stork and Swanson, though, and both would be potential targets in the third round or later if the Jaguars decided to go receiver in the second round.

Wide receiver

Players available: Marqise Lee, Jordan Matthews, Bruce Ellington, Davante Adams, Jarvis Landry and Cody Latimer are atop the list of potential targets in what is considered a very deep group of receivers.

The skinny: The Jaguars are looking for bigger receivers. Lee (6-foot, 195 pounds) likely would have been a top-10 pick in 2013 had he been able to leave school early. He had a monster sophomore season (118 catches, 1,721 yards, 14 TDs) but he was hurt by poor QB play last season (57 catches, 791 yards). He also seems to always be nicked up, but he’s still the best receiver remaining. The Jaguars pick seventh in the second round and would likely have to move up a few spots to get him. The coaching staff worked with Matthews at the Senior Bowl and liked the former Vandy standout’s size (6-3, 206) and production (232 career catches) in the SEC. Latimer is another big receiver (6-3, 215) that some draft analysts had going in the first round.
