The Jaguars obviously need a quarterback. But they need other stuff too, which is why they’re casting a wide net this week.

In addition to having Buffalo outside linebacker Khalil Mack in yesterday, the Jaguars are busy this week with other guests.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Jags are also hosting Auburn tackle Greg Robinson and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who’ll be followed by Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr and UCLA linebacker Antony Barr.

It’s the season for smokescreens and deception, but also due diligence.

The Jaguars have to be prepared to make their quarterback call based on what happens in front of them, but can’t be blinded to other needs. Though they’ve had an active and productive offseason, finding a pass-rusher is still a need, and a gifted protector such as Robinson is always going to be good value.
