General manager Gene Smith was charged with giving a quarterback he traded up for last season better people to aim for.
And Smith has come through, trading up from seventh to fifth and nabbing Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon. He’ll join free agent additions Laurent Robinson and Lee Evans, a reclamation project, in trying to transform the Jacksonville passing offense.
The Jags gave up No. 7 and No. 101 in the fourth round to Tampa Bay for No. 5 and the right to add Blackmon.
Hard to find any issue at all with that.
If they find a pass-rusher next, this will be a rousing success.
