at the time and pick 3rd round of that draft, i thought he would turn out to be one of the star players from that draft..What a let down.

Good post! There are definatly some posters on here who have closed minded tunnel vision in regard to JJ. Saying his hands are suspect is ridiculous. He muffed some punts his rookie year. He never dropped a pass in preseason or regular season, but his hands are suspect? Geez some people are gonna be chomping on some crow and it won't be you or me. I guarantee it!

They are going to continue to develop Jernigan for the length of his rookie contract. As things seem to be shaping up I think we'll see Nicks, Cruz, Randle, Myers, and Murphy as the target tree lineup. Murphy was signed for a year, like Bennett, to see what he can bring to the offense with his speed. There is a reason Eli worked with Ncks, Cruz, and Murphy at Duke. Maybe it was just availability...maybe not.

I guess he could have a breakout year as a special teams performer; but, that's really not what they drafted him for, or what everyone is hoping for. If a guy gets to this point in his career and Coughlin hasn't used him yet, chances are his hopes of ever starting or getting a lot of playing time on offense are nil.
