Ron Quinn from Green Cove Springs, FL:
This is the first year I have paid much attention to the draft, and I can tell you it was exciting. It will be interesting to see how the Jaguars' picks pan out, as well as the players they didn't pick. I would like to know what happens if the drafted player and the team cannot agree on a contract?
Javier Bencomo from El Paso, TX:
Being a Jaguar fan in West Texas is tough, so, I always look at your column for some answers. I believe the Jaguars did a great job filling up some of their needs on draft day, yet, I still have a problem with having a rookie (Maurice Williams) protecting Brunell's blind side, not that I question Williams' ability or talent, but I still feel it's a risk. Looking at the Jaguars schedule and some of the defensive ends Williams would match up with makes me question this. So my question is, looking at the free agents available, could the Jaguars make a move to sign a quality veteran (minimum salary) to allow Williams to develop and reach his potential without risking and losing Brunell to an injury that could be prevented?
Burney Dawkins from Jacksonville:
First, I enjoy reading your thoughts because they are not full of whiney second-guessing, like so many of your counterparts. I think we had a solid draft that will fill several of our holes. My question to you is: What is the money situation looking like going into the summer, and will there be some cap casualties in order to get the draftees signed?
Jason Wulfekuhle from Cheyenne, WY:
I believe our draft was a good draft. I just can't understand Tom Coughlin's thinking on getting a punter. Wouldn't it have been better to get a fullback instead, and then get a punter in the later rounds or in free agency? Do you agree with this and think we should have picked someone else besides a punter or a fullback?
Paul Baimbridge from Temecula, CA:
Do you think that maybe Coughlin was thinking that Maurice Williams has the potential to be a better player than Kenyatta Walker? Do you think that's why he passed on Walker?
