When your fridge is empty and finally drag yourself to the supermarket, you probably should be prepared for a long afternoon. There's no zipping in, hitting the frozen food section, loading up on pizza bagels and checking out. You're shopping for staples, so you're going to be spending more time schepping up and down the aisles than you'd like, no way around it.

And when a football team has a shopping list full of needs, it must approach the NFL draft as a chance to stock the cupboards. It's not enough to say, "We have the No. 1 pick. We need a quarterback. We must spend the No. 1 pick on a quarterback, everything else be damned."

Of all the quarterbacks likely to be available in the 2014 NFL Draft, Teddy Bridgewater appears to be the most NFL ready. But does that make him a quarterback worthy of that No. 1 overall pick, even for a quarterback-needy team like Jacksonville?

Might there be a way for the Jaguars -- or whomever winds up in that top spot -- to fill a position of need, like quarterback, without forsaking their many other needs?
