Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY SportsAfter years of analysis, punditry, and presentation centered around the NFL Draft A.J. Bouye Jerseys Stitched , former NFL Network announcer Mike Mayock is now a real, live NFL general manager with the Oakland Raiders. He’s joining Jon Gruden and boy is this gonna be fun to watch.Mayock is known for a lot of things in the draft world, but his mock drafts are used far and wide among agents and sportswriters alike. While Mayock (and others) may put out a handful of mock drafts between now and the NFL Draft, it’s the last mock draft that counts. That’s the one that most represents your views on players, fits, and front office leanings the closest to the real live event.But what if Mayock was our general manager? What if he was the one making the picks for the last eight years instead of Gene Smith, Dave Caldwell Youth Jalen Ramsey Jerseys , and Tom Coughlin?Let’s compare first round draft picks!2011-2018 Jaguars draft resultsYearPlayerAll-ProPro BowlsStarter SeasonsGames StartedYearPlayerAll-ProPro BowlsStarter SeasonsGames Started*These stats are for when the player was with the Jaguars.Uh, yikes.The only good player on this list is Jalen Ramsey. Eight years of first round picks — seven of which were in the top five — and only one player is a Pro Bowl caliber player. I don’t think the Jaguars could do worse if they tried.Now let’s look at how Mayock would have drafted if he were the general manager.2011-2018 Mayock resultsYearPlayerAll-ProPro BowlsStarter SeasonsGames StartedYearPlayerAll-ProPro BowlsStarter SeasonsGames StartedThe results for the early seasons are a little skewed because Mayock didn’t predict that the Jaguars would do some first round trading and maneuvering.While the results are the same for four out of the eight drafts, the two that really stand out are Ryan Kerrigan and Khalil Mack instead of Blaine Gabbert and Blake Bortles. Can you imagine a defense boasting Kerrigan, Mack, and Jalen Ramsey as Mayock would have built for us? The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Miami Dolphins 17-7 on Sunday, eliminating the Dolphins from the 2018 playoff picture and hurting their own draft stock in the process.

Kidding aside, winning is always a good thing and the win on Sunday probably told you more about the Dolphins than it did the Jaguars.One person who really enjoyed the win was quarterback Blake Bortles, he came in off the bench.“I mean obviously it felt good. You never want to see anybody get hurt,” Bortles said after the game. “I never want to see Cody get hurt; but to get the opportunity to go play again with those guys and be out there and share a win with them is pretty awesome.”Bortles came in for a play or two when starting quarterback Cody Kessler took abig hit and landed on his throwing shoulder Youth Ronnie Harrison Jerseys , but later on came back in once head coach Doug Marrone decided the offensive line couldn’t keep Kessler upright and wanted to incorporate Bortles mobility.“Yeah. Obviously going in and running some zone-read, which was some stuff that we didn’t really do a whole lot in the game. I don’t know if they were prepared for it or not but we were able to get some plays out of that and kind of made some plays when we needed to and scored. I think the defense played incredible. It was cool to see,” Bortles said when asked if it was satisfying to hit a few throws and get some big runs. “The amount of injuries we’ve had upfront and to watch those guys kind of get plugged in different places and the way they fight and battle, it’s impressive and I’m proud to be a part of it.”The Bortles led offense still only mustered three points and the offensive line continued to struggle as it has since the injuries have taken their toll and started adding up, with another Josh Wells leaving the game with a concussion. The game was sealed with the Telvin Smith pick six, but the first downs and clock burning the offense was able to do with Bortles’ running the ball also contributed to holding off the Dolphins.Doug Marrone declined to announce who would start the season finale against the Houston Texans and seemed to indicate Kessler was pulled because they simply couldn’t protect him, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Bortles closed out the season in large part because of his mobility. The Texans defensive line is much better than the Dolphins and if they couldn’t protect Kessler then Ronnie Harrison Jerseys Stitched , they certainly won’t on Sunday.Long term, it is a huge risk starting Bortles, though. It seems clear the team is ready to move on and will likely try to trade or outright release Bortles, so you don’t really want to risk him getting a serious injury in the final game. Bortles has been durable through his career, but it’s still a $21 million risk for a meaningless game in a lost season.
