Looking at the offensive side of the ball there are quite a few needs but they would be huge reaches (not that Smith hasn't reached before and had it work out) and probably not worth this pick. It's too early for Michael Floyd of Stephen Hill or Alshon Jeffery at wide receiver, too early for Dwayne Allen or Coby Fleener at tight end and there's no other offensive weapon worth taking in this spot to help out Blaine Gabbert.
Despite grading out well last year the Jags gave up 44 sacks and although alot of that is on the rookie QB, it would still benefit him to give him a little more time. Also, even though the Jags boast one of the best RBs in the league, they only managed to put up a top 12 rushing attack but did so grinding out a paltry 4.0 yards per carry. Because of the style of runnner Maurice Jones-Drew is they run alot between the tackles, with 60+ percent of their runs last year.
