The Jaguars find themselves in an unfamiliar position as they prepare for the draft. The way we hear it, the club feels good about the WR position for the first time in years. Mike Sims-Walker emerged last season as a dependable No. 1 option, but a healthy position battle is expected to take place for the opening spot opposite Sims-Walker. At least four players will be given an opportunity to earn the job, with Troy Williamson and Mike Thomas considered the front-runners. Williamson had earned the job with an impressive training camp last year, but a torn labrum ended his season in Week Two. The Jaguars were thrilled with the production of the versatile Thomas as a rookie. 2009 fifth-round pick Jarett Dillard also showed some flashes before breaking his ankle in Week 10. Perhaps the wild card, though, is free-agent acquisition Kassim Osgood. A special-teams standout with the Chargers, Osgood wants to be a receiver and at 6-foot-5 has a real size advantage over the competition.
