Morning Miller: JAGS DRAFT - April 30, 2012

Jaguars Bite of the Day – A breakdown of the Jaguars’ draft, from the Florida Times-Union.  Jacksonville drafted six players in total over three days.  On Thursday, Justin Blackmon was drafted after the Jags moved up two spots in the first round.  The Jaguars chose a punter, Cal’s Bryan Anger, surprisingly, in the third round.

Stat(s) of the Day – The Jaguars selected Cal punter Bryan Anger with the 70th overall pick Friday.  It was the highest a punter has been drafted since the Bears took Todd Sauerbrun in 1995 with the 54th pick.

Question of the Day – How many years will rookie punter Bryan Anger be a starter for the Jacksonville Jaguars?

You Should Know – The Chicago Bulls were dealt a blow after learning that MVP guard Derrick Rose suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.  The team announced he will miss the rest of the season.  Rose suffered the injury when he jumped off his left foot in a playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers.  He only played in 39 of the Bulls’ 66 regular-season games because of turf toe, back spasms, a pulled groin and foot injuries.  “It’s tough,” Carlos Boozer said.  “It seems like he just can’t catch a break…. I just feel for him, man.  He really can’t catch a break this season.”

Strange Thought of the Day – Will the Jaguars’ draft be remembered more for Justin Blackmon or Bryan Anger?
