Alualu may be the first name that comes to mind if you were to ask an NFL draft analyst to name a first-round bust or draft reach.
Former Jaguars general manager Gene Smith was heavily criticized for his decision to select Alualu with the 10th overall pick in the 2010 draft, and Alualu has been unable to justify this puzzling decision as he was considered a third-round talent.
He has been a rotational end along with Red Bryant for the Jaguars, and he came up with 30 tackles and two sacks.
The Jaguars are still in need of a pass rush upgrade though, so Ndamukong Suh may be in the cards.
NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport revealed Alualu’s contract details on Twitter.
