Bradley noted that Jaguars Owner Shad Khan already has invested in new locker-room and training facilities. “Shad has been so good to us,” he said. “He’s been awesome through this whole deal."

Per, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell talks about his first draft

"I’ve always been really nervous on draft day, during my time in Indianapolis, my time in Atlanta,” Caldwell said from the team facility on Wednesday. “So what surprised me was there was a calmness here. I remember thinking, in Indy and Atlanta, ‘Man, I hope this guy or that guy falls.’ I guess it’s like being a player. When you’re in the game, you’re just reacting and doing it.

Contractually, now is the year the Jaguars absolutely must find out if Blaine Gabbert can be that quarterback."
