Tebow a Jag, or not?

Before it was a foregone conclusion, now, not so much so.

In truth we are sooo tired of draft speculation. Sorry, it's just not our thing. What will be will be.
But here's the story on why Tebow is less likely to be drafted by the Jags (and remember, they don't have a second round pick.)

Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver likes to call Tim Tebow an icon, but indicated Thursday the Jaguars aren’t going to deviate from their draft board to select the former Florida quarterback.

“Personally, I think Tim Tebow is an extraordinary young man and he’s an extraordinary athlete. He’s going to be successful in the National Football League,” Weaver said during an interview before a Team Teal Rally Thursday.

But he said the Jaguars won’t force any picks.

“What we’ve got to do is trust our value board in our draft. If we force a pick, then we devalue thousands of hours of work by our scouts. We have to be true to our mission and go take the best player with our pick. When we do that, we get good results,” he said.

He then smiled and said, “We all know we’ve done it the other way in the past and it didn’t work. Shame on you if you don’t learn from your mistakes. You stay true to your process.”
