2012 NFL Draft: Will The Jaguars Still Go After A Wide Receiver?

Despite landing free agent Laurent Robinson, will the Jaguars still look to add a wide receiver through the NFL Draft? Pro Football Weekly says yes, labeling WR as the Jags' most pressing need in the upcoming Draft:

For as much criticism as Gabbert received for his wretched rookie campaign, his WR corps deserves almost as much blame. Few NFL teams were as poorly equipped at receiver as Jacksonville was last season. Thus, the Jaguars overpaid for Laurent Robinson after wide receivers began quickly flying off the free-agent board for boatloads of money. In Robinson, the Jaguars get a dynamic playmaker who can find the endzone and take the top off a defense. What they didn’t get was a guy who consistently can stay on the field. As a result, Jacksonville still covets a No. 1 wideout who can take the pressure off Robinson and help make Gabbert look good.

Despite that, Mocking The Draft's most recent first round mock has Jacksonville selecting an offensive lineman, another area of need for Gabbert.
