Cheap Nike Elite Jacksonville Jaguars Jawaan Taylor Jerseys 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Had the Jacksonville Jaguars been able to work a deal on Thursday night, offensive lineman’s Jawaan Taylor’s tumble down the NFL draft would have been a little shorter.

Taylor ended up falling to the third pick in the second round before the Jaguars were finally able to move up three spots because of a trade with the Oakland Raiders. They weren’t scared off by reports of medical issues and ended up filling a major need with the player that numerous draft analysts predicted in January and February the team would take with the seventh overall pick.

“We don’t have any major concerns,” Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said. “I don’t’ know where that came from. His medical grade was passable.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2019 draft: Analysis for every pick
“He’s fine. We didn’t have any concerns.”

Taylor called reports that he had a knee injury “definitely false,” saying that he played through a meniscus injury in 2017, but he didn’t have any issues last season. He did not run the 40 at the scouting combine or his pro day because of a hamstring injury.

“I’m 100 percent healthy and ready to go,” Taylor said. “It hurt me a little bit last night that you didn’t see what the reason was I didn’t get picked. … I’m a little upset, but everything happens for a reason.”

Taylor (6-foot-5, 312 pounds) started 35 games at Florida the past three seasons, with 33 coming at right tackle. He should slide into that spot with the Jaguars, who also signed former Cincinnati first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi last March.

The Jaguars gave up their fourth-round pick (No. 109) to the Raiders to move up from 38 to 35 and the Raiders also gave the Jaguars their fifth-round pick (No. 140) and a seventh-round pick (No. 235). Caldwell said he tried to work out a deal Thursday night to move into the back end of the first round in order to draft Taylor but said he was unwilling to give up one of the team’s two third-round picks.

Caldwell said he didn’t know why Taylor kept falling but was glad he did because it enabled the team to get a player they would have considered at No. 7 had defensive end Josh Allen not been available.

“We thought that he would be long gone by then — people probably say that every year about their second-round pick, right — but teams have different needs and they have different philosophies and different systems and why a guy falls is different for every team,” Caldwell said. “I think teams need guards. Teams need left tackles and here’s a guy that’s predominantly a right tackle. He started 35, 37 games. He’s big, he’s strong, he’s powerful. He did not run his 40 at the combine or throughout the whole spring, so teams may have looked at that, that sometimes teams don’t like to take guys that they don’t have a full workup on.”

Cheap New York Jets NFL Jerseys Authentic Orange Good Quality

A look at what’s happening around the New York Jets:

1. Swing and a miss: It’s the (gag) gift that keeps on giving (agita).

We’re talking about the 2014 NFL draft, arguably the worst in Jets history. When offensive lineman Dakota Dozier signed recently with the Minnesota Vikings, it left the Jets with only one player from the ’14 draft — wide receiver Quincy Enunwa.

One out of 12 picks.

Five years after the Idzik 12 — the general manager at the time was John Idzik — the Jets still are feeling the impact of that lost draft. If they had hit on, say, six out of 12, they would have a nice group of core players and they wouldn’t be reliant on free agency to plug holes. But instead of pulling off a watershed draft, Idzik & Co. watered down the roster. The Jets’ record since then is 28-52.

The Idzik 12
Under former GM John Idzik, the Jets drafted 12 players in 2014. Only two are currently on NFL rosters:

RD. PLAYER, POS. NFL GAMES
1 Calvin Pryor, S 38
2 Jace Amaro, TE 17
3 Dex McDougle, CB 31
4 Jalen Saunders, WR 15
4 Shaq Evans, WR 0
4 Dakota Dozier, OL 37
5 Jeremiah George, LB 37
6 Brandon Dixon, CB 19
6 Quincy Enunwa, WR 40
6 IK Enemkpali, LB 17
6 Tajh Boyd, QB 0
7 Trevor Reilly, LB 37
The draft started on a bad note, as then-coach Rex Ryan unsuccessfully lobbied Idzik to trade up for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Maybe it was bad karma, because it got progressively worse over the three-day draft.

The 2014 draft, which was loaded with talent, has produced 27 Pro Bowl players, according to Pro Football Reference. Of the 256 players selected, 115 have started at least one season. Only two Jets picks are on that list — Enunwa and safety Calvin Pryor, who washed out after being chosen No. 18 overall.

Here are a few more factoids about that ill-fated ’14 draft:

Only two of the 12 (Enunwa and Dozier) are currently on NFL rosters, but that isn’t the most staggering part. This is: Eight of the 12 picks were out of the league last season.

Eleven of the 12 have been cut at least once. Many have forgotten, but Enunwa was actually waived by the Jets as a rookie and added to the practice squad, where he began his journey to the starting lineup. All told, the 12 picks have been cut 44 times by 20 different teams. The leaders: Cornerback Dexter McDougle, linebacker Jeremiah George and cornerback Brandon Dixon each have been cut six times. The only unscathed player is Dozier, who left via free agency.

Only one of the 12 was cut after punching a teammate in the face — linebacker IK Enemkpali (see: Geno Smith).

The Jets managed to mine some talent from ’14 the second time around, signing linebackers Avery Williams (2018) and C.J. Mosley (2019) as free agents. It just cost them a lot more money than it would have the first time.

2. Mini-mock draft 1.0: The Jets have the No. 3 overall pick for the second year in a row. The previous time they had top-five picks in consecutive years was 1980-1981, when they selected wide receiver Lam Jones and running back Freeman McNeil, respectively.

The Jets drafted quarterback Sam Darnold at No. 3 in 2018. This year? Well, let’s go to the crystal ball for the top three picks.

Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB. The Cards already have a quarterback (Josh Rosen) and Murray already had a professional career (baseball), but why let that stuff get in the way of a draft-day marriage? I happen to believe Murray will be Baker Mayfield, except faster.

San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, DE. The recent trade for outside linebacker Dee Ford doesn’t mean the Niners are out of the edge-rusher market. It would be a surprise if they take defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, although some believe he’s the cleanest player in the draft.

Jets: Williams, DT. Personally, I would take linebacker Josh Allen because he fills a bigger need, but general manager Mike Maccagnan believes in best-player-available. Williams is an elite prospect whose only negative, if you could call it that, is that he was a one-year star in college. Maccagnan can’t afford to screw this up, so he’ll go with the safest pick even though it makes more sense to pick an edge rusher. He won’t have to make the decision if he trades the pick, which is a possibility.

3. Quinnen, freaky beast: Leonard Williams has worked out this offseason at the Mamba Sports Academy in the Los Angeles area. So has Quinnen Williams (no relation). They’ve talked a little bit, and Leonard likes what he sees and hears.

“He’s a freak,” Leonard said. “I’ve seen him. He’s fast, and he’s big and strong. The tape doesn’t lie. He’s a beast.”

Williams said Quinnen has a “childlike” personality, but he meant that as a compliment. He described the Alabama product as humble and wide-eyed despite his tremendous success in college.

“He was kind of fanning over me a little bit,” Leonard said. “He was like, ‘Oh, what’s up, man?’ He was trying to take a picture with me. I thought it was so funny because I remember being in that position.”

4. Sleeper at QB: I’ve heard intriguing reports on the Jets’ new quarterback, Brandon Silvers, who played most recently with the Memphis Express of the now-suspended Alliance of American Football. He’s a natural passer with excellent lower-body mechanics. He throws a nice “go” route. As one AAF coach said, “This guy moves the ball and scores points.”

Silvers, who began the AAF season behind former Jets bust Christian Hackenberg, was slowed by a pulled oblique muscle. Once he got healthy, he put up some respectable numbers — 777 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in three starts. Let’s go back to college: In his final year at Troy University (2017), he beat LSU in Death Valley — and that’s not easy to do.

Silvers, who also drew interest from the Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars, joins Trevor Siemian and Davis Webb as Darnold’s backups. They’re not going to keep four quarterbacks (been there, done that), so the competition should be keen.
The Jets never really knew what to do with Tim Tebow. And when they had ideas, they never used them. Steven Bisig/USA TODAY Sports
5. Tebow remembers Gase: The Jets hired coach Adam Gase in large part because of his expertise with quarterbacks. His first high-profile student was Tim Tebow, a Denver Broncos rookie in 2010. Gase also was Tebow’s position coach in 2011, when Tebow Mania was born and the Broncos made the playoffs. Funny, but Gase never mentions Tebow when he lists the quarterbacks he has mentored.

Anyway, I caught up with Tebow the other day in Syracuse, New York, for a story about his baseball career, and he had some good things to say about the Jets’ new coach.

“He’s a really nice guy,” Tebow said. “He’s very passionate. He loves football. He’s all-the-time football, just football, football, football. He cares about his players. I really enjoyed that about him. He’s open to doing it different ways. He learned a lot then. I can only imagine now how much more he’s picked up. He just soaked in all sorts of different concepts, from Mike Martz to all these different systems. He’s such a football guy.”
6. The year he’d like to forget: This was my first interview with Tebow since his one and only season with the Jets (2012), which turned into a disaster for all parties. The team traded for Tebow with the idea of making him a multi-purpose weapon, mainly a Wildcat quarterback, but they never executed the plan. The entire Tebow experiment was an embarrassment for the franchise and it effectively ended his NFL career. When asked about that year, Tebow made it clear he didn’t want to go there again.

“It was a very interesting year, a lot of highs and lows,” he said. “Obviously, I don’t think it went the way anybody had hoped. I think I learned a lot from it, on a personal level, handling things.

“It was very interesting,” he added, revealing a smile that said what his words didn’t.

JACKSONVILLE – Senior writer John Oehser’s notes and observations as the Jaguars begin preparing for the 2018 preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Thursday …

1.Expectations were already high for the 2018 Jaguars defense – and the first three preseason games pushed them even higher. “We’ve made a few plays, but we have a lot of room for growth,” defensive end Calais Campbell said. That’s true, but a defense that ranked second in the NFL in yards allowed, interceptions, points allowed and takeaways last season has been dominant in the three games with the first unit not allowing a touchdown and allowing just four field goals. “That’s the beauty of it: Even when we make mistakes, we still play some good ball out there,” Campbell said. “This ‘D’ can be very, very good. We wanted to intimidate people and send a message across the league. That was the goal going into preseason: the first couple of teams we play, we wanted to make sure they see a team that’s fast and physical and plays with a different kind of intensity. … The ultimate goal would be to have offensive coordinators looking at the defense like, ‘I don’t know where to attack … I don’t know how.’ That’s the ultimate goal.”

2.Anyone wondering the Jaguars’ approach to Thursday’s preseason finale need to look no further than Head Coach Doug Marrone’s media availability Monday. With most NFL teams now resting most or all starters in the preseason finale, Marrone was asked his approach against Tampa Bay. “That’s always the age-old question that you get,” Marrone said. “I know we’re going to be smart about it. I think a lot depends on how we do during the week, what our focus is and what we’re trying to take care of. I’m going to be smart and do what I have done in the past. I think that is the best way to explain it.” Marrone last season rested the majority of the team’s front-line players in the preseason finale. The idea behind the approach is not only to prevent injuries but to ensure players are as fresh as possible entering the regular season. “You really can feel it,” defensive tackle Malik Jackson said of the extra time off between Preseason Week 3 and the regular-season opener. “That’s why for example we fight for a bye week in the playoffs. A week off means a lot. So, to get two weeks off to get your body back and let it recover from what we just did is awesome.”

3.One area the Jaguars will miss wide receiver Marqise Lee is as a downfield blocker in the running game. Lee, who Marrone said Monday will miss the 2018 regular season with a knee injury sustained against Atlanta Saturday, was perhaps the Jaguars’ best receiver in this area. “He did a heck of a job that way, we all know that,” Marrone said. “Obviously, the people in that [wide receiver] room are going to have to step up. That’s why as soon as everything is done, we want to get him [Lee] back in that room, because there is a toughness about him that we want to make sure we keep.” The Jaguars led the NFL in rushing last season, and Lee’s ability as a run-blocker was a factor in the team re-signing him to a contract extension this past offseason. “We work on it,” Marrone said. “It’s hard when you work on that stuff. In training camp with full pads, we do defensive back/wide receiver blocking drills. Those guys do get a lot of work on it.”

4.Marrone on Monday discussed multiple players against Atlanta, praising starting right tackle Jermey Parnell’s first appearance of 2018 after missing the first two preseason games with a knee issue. “I thought he looked good,” Marrone said. “I really did. He had good sets, stayed squared, worked well, so I was happy with that.” Marrone also said second-year left tackle Cam Robinson improved against Atlanta after struggling the previous Saturday against end Danielle Hunter and the Minnesota Vikings. “I thought Cam, obviously, played much better than he did than the first two games, but I still there is room for improvement from everybody,” Marrone said. Marrone also addressed the NFL debut of rookie defensive lineman Taven Bryan, who missed the first two preseason games with an abdominal injury. “I thought he got some good movement,” he said of Bryan, the No. 29 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft who was penalized late in the game for roughing the passer. “I wasn’t happy with the penalty. He did some good things. He showed his power, he showed his strength. He was up on his feet and got involved on some plays. It is a pretty good progression of a guy that really hasn’t practiced or played. I think it’s difficult. I think he will just get better as he keeps playing.”
