“You watch it and you don’t understand how it happens,” says Kuharsky.
Kuharsky mentions that Gabbert is having issues with his accuracy and pocket presence, despite the fact that he has shown improved footwork.
There have been other reports that Gabbert has in fact looked much better this year, but the expectations for the second-year quarterback appear to be pretty low, despite being a former first-round pick.
Blaine Gabbert‘s rookie season was nothing to write home about. In his first year as quarterback for the Jaguars, Gabbert had a completion percentage of 50.8 to along with his 2,214 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a passer rating of 65.4. Not great numbers for the quarterback whom the Jaguars are trying to build a team around. However, so far this camp, Gabbert is showing signs of improvement according to some.
The Jaguars success this season ultimately depends on Gabbert’s improvement as the teams quarterback. It would almost seem impossible for him to not improve off his dreadful rookie season with the additions of wide receivers Laurent Robinson and rookie Justin Blackmon.
