Maybe the pre-draft pizza had just been delivered. Maybe area traffic was a little heavy. Maybe someone botched the Microsoft Exchange invite for the entire front office and told everyone the draft was scheduled for next week. Whatever the case, the war room belonging to the Jacksonville Jaguars looked light on both people and computer power when the NFL Network did a peek-in on Thursday night.
Of course, Jacksonville doesn't have much to do in the first round of the NFL draft. The Jaguars own the second pick and are likely to select offensive tackle Luke Joeckel out of Texas A&M once the Kansas City Chiefs make Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher the first pick. If the Chiefs change course and go with Joeckel, then the Jags will go with Fisher. Jacksonville needs line help and it needs it bad.
Of course, if the Jags room looks this empty from round two on, then maybe Jags fans have a reason to worry.
