Although the Jaguars spent their first four picks in the 2010 draft on defensive linemen and acquired pass-rushing specialist Aaron Kampman in free agency, we hear that a defensive end remains at the top of their offseason wish list. The club showed marked improvement in getting to the quarterback by nearly doubling its sack total this season — 26 sacks compared to 14 in 2009 — but it still finished the season ranked 28th in both sack percentage and pass defense. The Jaguars think Kampman, who was playing at a high level before suffering his second consecutive season-ending knee injury, can make a full recovery, but it is imperative that they find a player who can attract double-teams and consistently wreak havoc on QBs to pair with him on the left side. The way we hear it, rookie DE Austen Lane and DE Jeremy Mincey played well in spurts in ’10, but neither appears to be the difference maker the club covets.
