|Join Jaguars Inside Report Senior Editor Vic Ketchman as he tackles the fans' tough questions.|
Adel Nahabia from Jacksonville:
|Vic: I don't think Robinson would interest the Jaguars, but Jimmy Smith''s recent surgeries would have to make wide receiver a position of consideration. The offensive and defensive lines are clearly the Jaguars' priority positions, but Smith's injury and R. Jay Soward's failures make wide receiver a secondary position of need. The question might be better phrased: What if David Terrell was available? That having been said, Terrell and Robinson are expected to be gone by the time the Jaguars pick.|
Ben Corby from Jacksonville:
|Vic: I'm sorry, but I don't share your energy or fascination for the kicking game. Ultimately, I'd like the Jaguars to find a punter who can drop-kick, so I don't have to answer questions about who the holder is going to be.|
Paul Baimbridge from Temecula, CA:
|Vic: The best middle linebackers in the history of the game will tell you the secret to their success was having defensive tackles in front of them whose job it was to keep the blockers off the middle linebacker. Jack Lambert had Joe Greene and Ernie Holmes; Ray Lewis has Tony Siragusa and Sam Adams. In my opinion, the Jaguars need to add size to their defensive line as much as they need to draft offensive linemen. You gotta get the big guys early, Paul. It's the "Planet Theory:" There are only so many people on the planet that big, and you better get them when you have the chance.|
Brian Hannah from Orange Park, FL:
Kiley Johnson from Grangeville, ID:
|Vic: College quarterbacks who run the option are usually better runners than they are passers, because option offense places a premium on running the ball. Tuiasosopo is such a quarterback. He won't be taken until late in the draft because he lacks the size, arm strength and passing skills that are the standards for the pro game. To understand the difference between option quarterbacks and drop-back passers, consider this: Dan Marino is one of the greatest quarterbacks in pro football history. Do you think he would've been a good option quarterback? With all of that said, NFL teams are looking for quarterbacks who are mobile, which is why Tuiasosopo will be drafted.|
Paul Beardsley from Jacksonville:
|Vic: Kevin Hardy probably wouldn't command that kind of trade, largely due to two reasons: 1.) He would be more of a cap hit than the 49ers could afford; 2.) He only has one year remaining on his contract, which means the 49ers would probably have to pay even more money to keep him. No team is looking to take on more salary cap "baggage."|
