The Jaguars gave up their 2011 second-round to move up six spots and draft Gabbert, who still have David Garrard under contract for a lot of money. Personally, I think Garrard can be very effective if given the right pieces and believe the Jaguars would have been better served drafting anywhere on defense rather than moving up for a quarterback.
Jack Del Rio has been pushed out of the decision-making process in the war room, so he’s probably not happy with this pick. He likely would have preferred to go defense rather than drafting a quarterback who will likely sit for a year or two.
But Gabbert is a Jaguar, Jacksonville is down a second-round pick, and the defense will continue to struggle.
