Sammy Watkins set to visit with Jaguars

The Jaguars aren’t leaving many stones unturned as they set up their board ahead of next month’s draft.

As reported by various outlets over the last couple of days, they are meeting with several of the top prospects in this year’s class this week. Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack, Auburn tackle Greg Robinson, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles, Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr were included in those reports, but the list doesn’t end there.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins is also headed to Jacksonville for a visit on Thursday. There are a couple of projected early picks not on that list, although Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has already praised South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s work at his recent pro day.

That’s a lot of names playing all over the field, which is likely just the way the Jaguars want it with a month to go until Roger Goodell starts calling names from New York City. For a team that needs a little bit of everything, it makes sense to cast a wide net in terms your own research as well as keeping other teams from feeling comfortable that their desired player will make it past the third pick of the draft.

    I really hope a player of his caliber doesn’t go to Jacksonville. I want to watch the guy play.

    Well, one day you’re hanging out with Megatron, Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate and the next it’s Chad Henne and two WR guys you’ve never heard of. I guess that’s why they call it a “draft”, otherwise you’d never choose to go there.

    Yeah…all that talent and you only went 7-9 last year….4-12 the year before…I’m sure he would rather live and play in Detroit than a coastal FL city with no taxes.

    Lets be honest nobody is dying to play for detroit or jacksonville but given a choice I think detroit is probably slightly more attractive offense to be a part of for a WR. But thats a pointless discussion.

    Is that last part suppose to be an incentive?
