Expect Caldwell to consider 49ers OC Greg Roman, if the Jags fire Mularkey. Plane's taking off now ... See you guys in a few.
Anyone actually think Roman can win in Jacksonville? I don't
I think so, he wont win the division but all he needs is an improved defense and they can at least compete.
He has a poor man's 49ers East in terms offense there already
Henne = Poor man's Alex Smith
Jones-Drew = Gore
Blackmon = Poor man's Crabtree
Mercedes Lewis = a good #2 TE.
and half decent OL that MJD makes look good, but Gabbert made look terrible, Henne played a little better behind them.
Draft a top tier defensive player with the first pick like Lotulelei, Jarvis Jones, Demontre Moore, Bjorn Warner in the first, then Tyler Wilson/Matt Barkley with the 2nd rounder, then a TE like Fauria or Toilolo in the 3rd and you've got a solid foundation.
Especially if he could trade down a from the #2 slot to #5 - 8 and pick up another 2nd rounder to use on another defensive player like a quality safety or corner and they immediately have a quality roster in the making.
