In recent years, many of the complaints directed at the drafting style of former-general manager Gene Smith were about his propensity to draft "small school" players. New general manager Dave Caldwell spoke with John Oehser of Jaguars.com in article posted Monday and told him that fans shouldn't expect the same during his tenure with the team.
"I always believe in drafting and acquiring toward what the norms are," he said. "If 93 percent of the players in the NFL are playing at Division I-A programs, that's the norm. I'm not saying I would never draft a small-school player, but they would have to dominate that level. I wouldn't say absolutes, but I'm a believer: big school, big competition."
