To All Jacksonville Jaguars Fans:
On behalf of my wife Ann and our family, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and your families for all you are doing to help Jacksonville take on the challenges of COVID-19 that have had an undeniable impact on our world today. Our nation has certainly encountered adversity in the past and, in each instance, we've persevered and ultimately triumphed. Thanks to everyone's commitment to being a good citizen and neighbor, I know we will again.
In particular, we all owe a debt to the brave men and women serving on the front lines of this battle, here in Jax and throughout the world. Their daily acts of heroism can at times go unnoticed, but let's not let that happen. There is no better way to honor those who work in capacities essential to getting us through these difficult times than to follow all local guidelines and recommendations by our health and public officials. That will not only help to ensure our health and well-being, but theirs as well.
The NFL Draft is now upon us. I hope you will agree that while we must remain mindful and respectful of the continued battle ahead for everyone, we can also use the opportunity to virtually bond and enjoy the diversion that the NFL Draft provides.
The experience this week will undoubtedly be different, but nothing is the same at this moment as it was just a few months ago. I am expecting the NFL to rise to the occasion and provide three captivating days of coverage and content, and I know our marketing and communications staff will go the extra mile for Jaguars fans following the proceedings at home in Jacksonville and throughout the world.
With two picks in the first round, seven selections in the top 150 and 12 picks overall, this will be a big draft for the Jaguars. I know your anticipation is great and expectations are high, and I welcome both.
Thank you, as always, for your loyalty and support of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Wherever we may be on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, let's come together in spirit. I hope we can see each other, in person, very soon.
