The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking at a scenario in the NFL Draft this May where they won’t have to take a quarterback early if they don’t want to. while they will almost certainly take a quarterback at some point — possibly even two — it’s still a mystery as to who they covet.
One name to consider is a name we haven’t heard much of in the whole Teddy Bridgewater-Johnny Manziel hype, and that’s Miami Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris.
Miami quarterback Stephen Morris played two years (2011-12) for current Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, but the two are on opposite sides this week at the Senior Bowl.
Morris doesn’t hide his desire for a reunion.
“Having the opportunity to play for the Jaguars, that would be amazing,” he said after today’s practice.
He’d be a very late round pick at best and would likely be the second quarterback the Jaguars draft, but he’s a name to consider nonetheless. We’ve seen late round quarterbacks become something decent in the NFL and the fact that Morris would have continuity from college to the pros doesn’t hurt.
