Harvey to the Jags at No. 8 after trade

With the No. 8 overall pick in the NFL Draft

The Jacksonville Jaguars select…

Derrick Harvey, Defensive End, University of Florida.

Harvey is 6’4” 271 lbs. and ran a 4.83 40-yard dash.

Kudos to the Jaguars for going up in the draft and getting their man. Pass rushers are key in the AFC south division, especially with Vince Young’s abilities. I think they probably could have gotten Harvey lower in the draft and they certainly gave up a lot to get him but he will be a solid defensive end for many years to come. 

Details of the trade…

The Jaguars gave up two third round picks and a fourth round pick to swap first round picks with the Ravens. That’s a steep price and the Ravens should be happy with what they’ve done here. The Ravens have set up the back end of the draft for some more movement. Teams looking for a quarterback will now have to move ahead of the Ravens at 26 to get one.
