Jaguars general manager David Caldwell, who will be running his first draft, has said he likes to draft for need and the Jaguars have a major need in the defensive line.

QB competition isn’t scaring Blaine Gabbert off

As the Jaguars prepare for the start of their off-season program Tuesday, Gabbert knows he’ll face competition to remain the team’s starter, it’s just a matter from whom. Sitting in a conference room in the Jaguars’ offices on Thursday, he portrayed a confident but realistic attitude.
