NFL Draft Grades 2012: Jaguars Receive B- From Pete Prisco Of CBS Sports

The analysis of this weekend's NFL Draft continues, with Pete Prisco of CBS Sports now weighing in his opinions. The mediocre feelings by Mel Kiper of ESPN toward the draft picks by the Jacksonville Jaguars are echoed by Prisco, who gave the Jaguars a B- on the weekend.

Here is his breakdown. Like many, Prisco felt the Jaguars had a strong opening, but blew their late-round picks on questionable selections.

Best pick: Moving up for Justin Blackmon was a nice decision. They had to get a big-play receiver.

Questionable move: Did they really draft a punter in the third round? Taking Bryan Anger there was the worst move of this draft -- by any team.

Third-day gem: Fifth-round linebacker Brandon Marshall is a tough player who should make the roster at a thin position. Scouts think he'll be good as a special-teams player.

Analysis: The first two picks of Blackmon and defensive end Andre Branch nailed it. Taking Anger really put a dark cloud over what should have been a really good draft. There is no justification for that pick.

Grade: B-

The jury is still out on how successful of a draft it was for the Jaguars, as fans will be eagerly awaiting to see this class on the field.
