        Just came across this article, from a few days ago.  From ESPN+ discussing draft picks.

        “Some defensive front players who had fluctuated in draft projections ended up going late in the first round, including Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson (No. 26, New York Jets) and Utah’s Devin Lloyd (No. 27, Jacksonville). Both had been pegged as potential top-10 picks earlier in the pre-draft process.

        An offensive coordinator who faced Lloyd was surprised he dropped in the first round, adding, “It’s too bad he went to Jacksonville; they can’t get out of their own way.”

        “I think he’ll be very good,” the coach added. “He’s got great talent, and everything it takes to keep getting better and be a great pro. Very squared away, smart guy.”

        Thrilled for him to be in the NFL, not thrilled he went to the Jaguars. Basically, if you are drafted to the Jaguars, Jets, or Lions you are headed to purgatory.

          …also Browns.  All have rotten ownership/management.

        After last season the jags seem to more committed to change, and they have a talented qb. Here’s hoping they don’t squander it….

          They had a decent draft, except maybe the first pick which is a bit of a head-scratcher. They definitely picked based on “measurables” instead of track record. I hate that.
