Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports writes that Jaguars GM David Caldwell is likely to spend a good portion of the season studying quarterback prospects like Teddy Bridgewater and Tajh Boyd.
According to Cole, Jacksonville was “only too happy” to see teams like the Bills and Jets draft quarterbacks in the early rounds of the most recent NFL draft, which means there should be less competition in next year’s top quarterbacks.
Cole mentions the Jaguars and Browns as the two teams likely to target quarterbacks with the early portion of next year’s draft.
Blaine Gabbert is expected to compete with Chad Henne for the team’s starting job this year, but Cole adds that there’s a chance that might neither player will be on the team’s roster next season.
While the idea that the team is focused on the 2014 may not be the most encouraging thing to hear when it comes to the 2013 season, Jacksonville is at least focused on building a solid foundation that will allow them to compete for divisions titles in the coming years and that’s really what matter most.
