Just based on the Jags moves so far under Dave Caldwell, I think they will draft very young players with more upside and perhaps less immediate impact. They are releasing all of the older players on the team that they can, pretty much, and showing absolutely no interest in other team's free agents.

Looks like a total rebuild in progress. Floyd is very young, (20 on draft day), so he does have that appeal for the team. Ansah, I'm not sure of, but I think he is about 25 and still quite raw in terms of technique, so I doubt the Jags bother to take the time with him. Luke Joeckel and Damontre Moore make the most sense to me. I'm sure Joeckel wouldn't have a problem with playing RT for awhile. It will be the same for him in K.C. Monroe's contract runs out next season. Moore is maybe the youngest player in the draft, (he and DeAndre Hopkins), I'd love to see those two on the team. I don't have a lot of confidence in the Jag's receiving corps, and I don't get the feeling that Caldwell does either.

The wild card here may be Gabbert's forearm injury. It involves nerve damage, and at the time Blaine said it was one of those one in a million fluke injuries. If they're not totally confident that he can recover fully, a quarterback is certainly in play.
