Roundup: Jags likely to pass on Bryant

The Jaguars know a thing or two about enigmatic receivers. R. Jay Soward, Reggie Williams, Jerry Porter and Matt Jones are a few of the dubious alumni of the Jaguars receiving corps. So it seems fitting that the team will likely take a pass on Dez Bryant , according to a report in the Florida Times-Union.

Soward, Williams and Jones were all first-round busts, to boot. So don’t expect coach Jack Del Rio to use the team’s No. 10 overall selection on a receiver. The most likely scenario is a mid- to late-round pick, because outside of Bryant, there is no top-10 talent at receiver in this year’s draft.

“Not that we wouldn’t [use a first-round pick on a receiver this year], but I don’t think there are any this year [where] that’s merited,” Del Rio said. “It’s not a great year for wide receiver, but there will be some guys in the mid rounds that have a shot.”

Some other draft notes:

  • The Patriots are taking an extra look at Mississippi’s do-everything running back Dexter McCluster, according to the Boston Globe. The Patriots will be sending down a group to workout McCluster in his hometown on Wednesday, and have had an interest in him since the Senior Bowl.
  • Well hello Mr. Fancy Pants. David White of the San Francisco Chronicle says that the Raiders are going to select Maryland OT Bruce Campbell. Or maybe the Raiders are leaning toward the famed star of Army of Darkness. You never know with the Raiders.
