Jaguars To Start Evaluating Top QB Prospects “Right Away”
It’s never to early to begin the process of finding a franchise signal caller. The Jacksonville Jaguars have won four of their last seven games after starting the season 0-8.
With Chad Henne entrenched as a capable backup, and Blaine Gabbert not being the answer, Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch told Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union that they were ready to start evaluating quarterbacks “As soon as the season ends. Right away.”
Fisch said he’d evaluate between 20 and 25 college quarterbacks, as they try to find their next one.
“I’ll start with just game tapes and then after game tapes, I’ll look at [cut-up] tapes so it will be more along the lines of — I’ll look at their third downs, their red zone, their two-minute drives and then I’ll look at all their sacks and the play that followed the sack to see how they handled it and then their broken plays. What happened when it wasn’t easy?” Fisch said.
With a likely top five pick in the May draft, the Jaguars will have options at the quarterback position. It’s about drafting the correct one this time around.
