The Jacksonville Jaguars under Gene Smith always hammered drafting the "best available player" (BAP) in the NFL Draft as their philosophy, but that rarely actually wound up being the case. Jaguars new general manager David Caldwell has a different philosophy however, drafting for your team's biggest need.
"We're going to be a needs-based team," Caldwell told John Oehser of Jaguars.com at the 2013 Senior Bowl. "If comparable, we'll go with the greater need.
"As long as you have a need in the first round, you try to get the best available player to fill that need."
Jaguars will draft for need, says David Caldwell
