Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

Blaine Gabbert lacks the arm strength it takes to make the down-the-field throws needed to soften up NFL defenses. Last year Gabbert only managed to muster 166 yards per game and 6 yards per attempt. This was bested by first year quarterback Chad Henne who managed 208 yards per game and 6.8 yards per attempt. This has to improve and it starts with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. The new era in Jacksonville has begun and things are already looking up.

Yes, it's only been two years since Jacksonville drafted Blaine Gabbert and some would say he deserves a little more time to develop. I, on the other hand, am not one of those guys. I was never with the Blaine Gabbert movement and still can't figure out how he moved from a third round talent to a top ten pick. It's safe to say Jacksonville made a bit of a reach on an average talent Quarterback.

That, however, is no reason to panic Jaguars fans. The Jags have made two great moves with the hirings of David Caldwell as the new general manager and Gus Bradley as the new head coach. These two hirings will prove to be great moves for Jacksonville. The changes won't stop with the coaching staff either. The new staff is ready for change and they want it now. That's exactly why the Jags sent their entire coaching staff to Geno Smith's pro-day. They wanted to get every eye and every opinion on their new team leader.

Thanks to all the CSC members who participated in this year's community mock draft. Without your help, none of this would be possible.
