    So in the end, it appears the LB we took in 3rd round may not have been such a surprise to NFL guys. The 49's in their post draft press conference brought him up on their own, and said he was a good player and went right where he should.

    We picked up a running back from Temple (which we needed), and a developmental QB in Gardner Minshew out of Wash St. Really interested to see what develops with him as far as being the backup. Quick release, accurate and supposedly as smart as they come. And apparently, quite he personality.

    Pretty happy with the draft.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Getting Allen and Taylor is like the Ramsey/Jack draft again and I love it.

    I didn't realize Minshew finished 5th in Heisman voting.

    Telvin Smith is sitting out the 2019 season for personal reasons.

    If you saw his video from a couple days ago, it didn't give you a warm fuzzy feeling about his mental state.

    Also Cody Kessler was released. For now Jags backup will be 6th rounder Gardner Minshew, 2018 6th rounder, Tanner Lee or Alex McCough. The feeling is the job is Minshew's to lose. The can always pick up a veteran off the street as another option.

    I'm very interested to see what the team has to say after they are able to communicate with him and get an idea of what's going on.

    I'm always 100% for the individual person > the athlete but I hope he's making the right choice. It's difficult to come back into most any pro sport after a year away. If he does sit and plays again it'll be about 19-20 months between live game action. Football would be especially difficult to come back to and especially once a player gets into their late 20s/early 30s.

    Not sure how I feel about a rookie being the next man up if something happened with Foles. With a team still built to compete I would hope they'd have a safer option for QB2 and carry Minshew as QB3.

    Camp has started. The Jags are in Baltimore. They will play a game Thursday and practice against the Ravens all week. They've had 2 notable injury setbacks. Jags had 2 3rd round picks this year and both are hurt.

    TE - Josh Oliver out of San Jose St has suffered a "significant" hamstring injury. That makes it sounds like he like is going to miss a few regular season games (at least).

    And our surprising (shocking?) LB pick Quincy Williams out of Murray State has torn a meniscus and it out until just about opening day. Other than missing much needed practice that one doesn't sound too bad. He had been opening eyes and convincing skeptics before the injury.

    And unfortunately it looks like the Jags and DE Yannick Ngokwe are going to be fighting contract issues for a long time.

    And last year's puzzling #1 pick still looks disapointing.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Jaguars activated LT Cam Robinson from the active/PUP list.

    A few days ago head coach Doug Marrone wasn't even sure if Robinson would be ready for the season opener coming off a torn ACL that sidelined him for much of 2018. Apparently that's no longer up for debate as Robinson is expected to resume individual drills on Monday. Barring an unexpected setback, the 2017 second-rounder will be ready to protect Nick Foles' blind side when the Jags host Kansas City in Week 1.
