5. Jacksonville Jaguars (Original Pick: Justin Blackmon, WR)
Re-do Pick: Ryan Tannehill, QB. Blackmon had some first-year impact as the season unfolded, but this just in: Without a quality quarterback, big-play receivers don't make too many big plays. All I know is one NFL team in Florida used a top 10 pick to address its need at quarterback last season and feels pretty good about the position going forward. And one didn't, and doesn't. Taking first-round quarterbacks in back-to-back years as Jacksonville would have had to do with Blaine Gabbert and Tannehill isn't likely, I know. But it's also not completely out of the question any more with the rookie wage scale. And yes, you can consider this my official vote of no confidence in Gabbert.18. San Diego Chargers (Original Pick: Melvin Ingram, LB)
Re-do Pick: Jonathan Martin, OT. The Chargers offensive line was makeshift at best this season, and Martin, a second-round pick of Miami's, would have been very useful in the effort to protect quarterback Philip Rivers. He started the season at right tackle and shifted to the key left tackle slot after Jake Long was injured. Ingram didn't make the quick transition to the pro game that was expected, and San Diego has to address the offensive line in this year's draft.
