Although the Cleveland Browns say they plan to match the offer sheet presented to Alex Mack by the Jacksonville Jaguars, the fact Jacksonville is even showing interest in the center has lead to speculation that the Jaguars may draft a quarterback in the early rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The suggestion comes from the Florida Times Union who hints the desire to add a highly touted center would be to make the transition easier for a early round quarterback to get his feet wet.
And here’s a juicy theory: The Jaguars now covet a quarterback at No. 3 who they think can start right away (or early this year) and want a veteran center like Mack to ease the transition. It might be far-fetched but worth debating.
It’s nothing more than speculation as there’s no factual evidence to suggest such as truth, though it’s certainly an interesting theory given the Jaguars currently have no player on their roster who have played an NFL game at center.
Of course, the Jags could just be looking to add a center given their lack of depth at the position, but it’s an interesting idea.
