Jaguars get Day 2 started with Cyrpien

Day 2 of the 2013 NFL draft is off and running, and the Jacksonville Jaguars have resisted the temptation to trade down — and the temptation to draft a quarterback.

Instead, the Jaguars have used the 33rd pick in the draft to select Florida International safety Johnathan Cyprien.

Because he didn’t play for a major football power, most fans hadn’t heard about Cyprien until he had a great week at the Senior Bowl and began to get notice as a big-time prospect. There was plenty of talk that Cyprien would go in the first round on Thursday, but when he was still on the board to star the second, the Jaguars pounced.

The Jaguars reportedly fielded calls on trades during the day, and there was talk that a team might move up to draft a quarterback like Geno Smith, Matt Barkley or Ryan Nassib. Instead, the Jaguars stayed where they were, and added a starter to their secondary.

    Well if you get a potential impact safety in the 2nd, that’s a good pick. We’ll see how it works out. But could we please get a pic of the owners stache??

    I was hoping he would fall to the Panthers. But good luck to him though he is a playmaker.

    Smart move for them. Keep drafting quality players like Joeckel and Cyprien and the wins will eventually follow.

    The Jaguars went into this weekend with probably the worst talent pool in the league. They’re being smart so far, going for quality as opposed to glamor.

    The collective sound of about 20 GM’s who thought they could steal Cyprien in the 2nd round.

    They say he’s a sure-shot can’t-miss.
