With the eighth pick of the 2009 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Missouri wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Here is lionsfan22's reasoning for the pick:
Maclin is a dynamite player and he couldn't be stopped this season. He will automatically step in and be the Jag's #1 WR which they have been searching for for many years. I know they have used picks on WRs in the past but his mixture of speed and quickness will give any NFL cornerback trouble. He can jump in and also be their return man right away and give Maurice Jones-Drew a break now that he is the full-time running back. He can also give the Jags someone who can run the new Wildcat formation with MJD in the backfield. Maclin will put the worries away from the Jags WR problems and this is why they will take him with the 8th pick in the draft.
