Comments: The Jacksonville Jaguars got the steal of the draft. Even though he won’t be used as a quarterback this is an awesome pick for the Jaguars. Matt Jones is so athletic and dedicated he’s going to make a difference at wide receiver, quarterback or even tight end for the Jaguars. Steal of the draft so far.
