I originally had posted the Jags pick from Michael Ulhorn who graciously offered to pick for Jacksonville in place of DadeCountyJag. Literally minutes after posting the pick, I heard back from DCJ, so we'll go with his selection. Thanks to Michael U. and to DCJ for their efforts. Next up: the New England Patriots, represented by NYSteelersFan4. - Michael B.

*********************

For years now there has been one glaring problem with the Jaguars defense. Inability to get pressure on the QB. Although there are many other holes needed to be filled on defense like LB, S, and CB, I don't think you can pass up on what Brooks Reed brings to the table. A high energy, non-stop motor with a knack for finding the ball. Great tackler, and is relentless while perusing the QB. Very athletic, with great speed in pursuit, he was actually a HB before. High character guy which Gene Smith loves, 3 year starter and Captain in college. Natural leader and electric personality on the field, which the Jags lack. Often draws comparison to Clay Matthews, and its not because of the hair. Great instincts and can probably play OLB if needed. Now here is the main reason the Jags cant pass up on him here. Aaron Kampman. Placing a player like Reed opposite of AK would solidify our D-Line, with 3 young beasts in the middle, book-ended by 2 relentless pass rushers on the outside. With all the new pressure on opposing QB's, (Peyton Manning) it will also help out our young DB's tremendously in their progression.
