Maurice Jones-Drew might not be the best running back in Jacksonville Jaguars history, but he's not too far off from that top spot. Now an analyst for the NFL, MJD wrote a column that saw him reveal his five favorite teammates from his playing days, and it reveals some pretty interesting insights.

Right off the bat, it shouldn't come as too much of a shock that Fred Taylor was his No. 1 pick. Taylor is a Jaguars' legend, and Jones-Drew began his career as his backup. He obviously served as a bit of a mentor to MJD, and Taylor has always been widely regarded as a fantastic teammate.

His No. 3 overall pick might be a bit more shocking, however. MJD chose the oft-suspended wide receiver, Justin Blackmon. Though Blackmon ultimately couldn't really stay out of his own way, he was extremely productive when on the field. Through 20 career games, Blackmon tallied 1,280 receiving yards and 6 TDs. His career remains one of the most intriguing recent "what ifs" in NFL history.

While it's certainly interesting to see Blackmon rank so high, it should shock absolutely no one that Taylor grabbed that No. 1 spot. After all, he's the best RB in Jaguars history.
