Not a surprise. There have been a litany of bad draft choices in Jacksonville, and even worse, a number of players who the Jaguars could have had much later in the draft, starting with Tyson Alualu and ending with the decision to take punter Bryan Anger in the third round when some guy named Russell Wilson was still on the board. Don't forget the atrocious free-agent contracts, either. Cardinals director of player personnel Jason Licht and 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble are the apparent top candidates. Hopefully, whoever gets hired will be down with Tony Khan and Daniel Adler's attempt to do a little analytics.

Antonio Brown is a late-round steal, but which active WR has beaten the odds of the draft and his QB? We studied the breakout seasons of the 20 all-time leading receivers and recent hidden gems. How important is QB play in developing a WR?
