The NFL Draft is coming up in May which has teams starting to hammer out their draft strategies now. One of those teams is the Jacksonville Jaguars who are looking to fill a number of needs in both free agency and the draft. A major need for the team is at quarterback and after much debate among fans throughout the season, the team has tipped it’s hand to their plans — not that they needed to.
According to Jaguars beat writer Ryan O’Halloran, Jacksonville’s owner Shad Khan has confirmed that the team is going to be drafting a quarterback in this year’s draft.

Almost everyone was already assuming the Jaguars were going to do such a thing, and Khan confirming the news is hardly anything earth shattering. Still, the question is where exactly will the Jaguars draft a quarterback? They own the No. 3 overall pick in the draft and high picks in each of the next rounds, meaning we could see the Jaguars take a top quarterback prospect in the first round and a lower profile quarterback on the third day.
