Jonathan Cyprien Twelve months ago, it was a sure thing the Jacksonville Jaguars would take one of two players - Eric Fisher of Eastern Michigan or Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M. Both tackles were head and shoulders about everyone else in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Jacksonville, picking second, had to wait only minutes for Kansas City to select Fisher, which allowed the 2014 team to get who was arguably the best tackle and player in the draft.

Although a broke ankle destroyed his rookie season after four games, Joeckel's future appears to be bright.

Other players made major contributions to the franchise and helped the Jaguars to double their win total over 2013. Here are grades for every draft pick from last season.

Luke Joeckel, Tackle - First Round, No. 2 Overall

Started as a right tackle and was blown away in first start of the season. Moved to left tackle after Eugene Monroe was traded and immediately broke his ankle. Was coming along in practice. Should have a solid second season.


Jonathan Cyprien, Safety - Second Round, No. 33 Overall

He was the leader of the rookie class of defensive backs for this team. A huge hitter and a solid tackler. He had his moments where he looked lost, but is still learning the speed of the game.


Dwayne Gratz, Cornerback - Third Round, No. 64 Overall

In the preseason, he had two interceptions and was solid on the outside. In regular season, dealt with injuries. Was good versus the pass and needs to improve his run defense. Look for him to get better in second season.


Ace Sanders, Wide Receiver - Fourth Round, No. 101 Overall

He was a nice surprise this season. He was thrust into action early because of injuries and spent more time in the starting lineup than the Jaguars might have liked. Should be a key player in the return game next year.


Denard Robinson, Running Back - Fifth Round, No. 135 Overall

The biggest disappointment of this draft. He was expected to be an “offensive weapon” for the Jaguars. Had trouble holding on to the ball and fumbled in the game against Buffalo that could have been a win. He will need a strong preseason to make the team.


Josh Evans, Safety - Sixth Round, No. 169 Overall

The Florida grad was expected to be drafted earlier than he was. A tall, rangy safety because a part-time starter but seemed to do better as a backup. He will get more time in the backfield in 2014. He is a heavy hitter.


Jeremy Harris, Cornerback - Seventh Round, 208 Overall

Drafted and never saw the field. Spent the season on the injured reserve after suffering an injury in camp.


Demetrius McCray, Cornerback - Seventh Round, 210 Overall

For being the last pick of the Jaguars, McCray impressed on special teams and in the secondary when he played. There is still plenty to learn, but McCray was a real steal.
