NFL Draft Grades 2012: Jaguars Receive "D+" From SB Nation

The draft grades continue to come, and in SB Nation's own version the Jaguars received an ugly D+ from NFL Editor Joel Thurmon.

Thurmon, like many others applauded the team's effort to bring in Justin Blackmon, he feels there are just too many other question marks in the remaining picks.

"Trading up for Justin Blackmon was a need-based decision. The Jaguars have been looking for a receiver for years and they may finally have one. Andre Branch has special talent, but we have to wait and see if it translates to the NFL. The punter is really what got me, selecting one in the 3rd round. Jeris Pendleton, the 7th round pick, also has some question marks.

Blackmon's the real deal, but there were some curious decisions in this draft."

Of course, time will tell whether this draft is a boom or a bust for the Jaguars.
