Kiper Mock Draft 1.0: Jaguars 

January, 15, 2014
The Jacksonville Jaguars own the third overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft after going 4-12 in the first year of the David Caldwell-Gus Bradley regime. The Jaguars’ top two needs are quarterback and pass-rusher, and they’ll have a chance to nab one of the elite players at those positions with their first pick.

The decision facing Caldwell is whether to go pass-rusher first and then quarterback or take a quarterback first and then a pass-rusher.

The team’s biggest need is without question quarterback. Blaine Gabbert, whom the Jaguars selected 10th overall in 2011, has not developed into the franchise quarterback the team needs. He hasn’t even developed into a quality starter. He lost his job to Chad Henne this season after throwing seven interceptions in three starts. Henne did a solid job as the starter, but he’s not a franchise QB either.
