Needs and value. Smokescreens. Measurables. Production. Upside. Intangibles. Mock drafts.

Enough already, right?

Since the afternoon of Dec. 30, when the most miserable season in Jaguars history ended in Nashville, Tenn., the focus of the team’s followers have been on Thursday night and Radio City Music Hall.

Picking second for the first time since 1996, the Jaguars can add a potential cornerstone player to a roster in dire need of them.

It will be the first pick of the Dave Caldwell-Gus Bradley era.

It will improve their last-ranked pass rush or solidify their leaky pass protection.

And it will glean intelligence on what they think of the current roster.

As 24 of the draft prospects descended on Manhattan Wednesday for a series of appearances, the Jaguars remained in wait-and-see mode. Wait to hear what Kansas City does at No. 1 and see if anybody calls with a last-ditch trade offer.

By all accounts, the four possibilities remain offensive tackles Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M and Eric Fisher of Central Michigan, defensive end Ziggy Ansah of BYU and outside linebacker Dion Jordan of Oregon.

“Once we went through the whole process with our scouts and coaches and kind of came to a consensus, it became very clear what direction we needed to go in this draft,” Caldwell said.

Joeckel is likely to be taken by the Chiefs and become only the fourth offensive line prospect to go first overall.

Fisher has been linked to the Jaguars — offensive line coach George Yarno put him through a workout on Central Michigan’s Pro Day and Fisher later visited Jacksonville (on the same day as Joeckel and Jordan).

Ansah told reporters Wednesday he has had no contact with the Jaguars. But that shouldn’t rule him out.

Jordan’s height (6-6) was praised by Bradley earlier this week and teams don’t seem concerned about his lack of production (14.5 sacks in 45 games).

Bradley said he hasn’t pushed for a defensive player specifically because of his background.

“I think I’m really in tune to saying, ‘Hey, this is what our commitment is,’ ” he said. “It’s simple for me to follow and say, ‘OK, let’s do it. Let’s stay true.’ ”
