|Join Jaguars Inside Report Senior Editor Vic Ketchman as he tackles the fans' tough questions.|
Nate Weir from Kaysville, UT:
Tom Coughlin was bound and determined to upgrade his defense overall and pick a player who would give his defense the ability to match up physically with teams such as Tennessee, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Maurice Williams' availability in the second round is something they didn't expect. That he was available seems to have made their draft successful. The expectations for him this season are for him to become their starting right tackle.
Robert Ripley from Daytona Beach, FL:
|Vic: You can't draft everybody. You can only take one player per pick and Tom Coughlin had decided the Jaguars needed Stroud more than they needed Walker. I've considered all of the possibilities, and this is what I've come up with: If you're drafting for need, the first two picks were either going to be defensive lineman first and offensive lineman second, or vice versa. If the Jaguars had taken Walker with the first pick, the highest-rated defensive lineman on the board in the second round would've been Maryland's Kris Jenkins. If you prefer the best available athlete theory, the picks would've been Walker in the first round and Maurice Williams in the second round. It appears to me that Stroud and Williams is a better combination than Walker and Jenkins or Walker and Williams. Why was Stroud a disappointing pick for a lot of people? Because they are Gator fans.|
Tim Walker from Pinellas Park, FL:
|Vic: NFL Europe games will be telecast on FOX Sports Net. Check your local cable TV listings for the corresponding channel. This Saturday, April 28, one p.m. EDT, the Berlin at Frankfurt game will be telecast by FOX Sports Net. Quinn, of course, is Berlin's starting quarterback.|
