The Jacksonville Jaguars add to the quarterback room by selection Jake Luton out of Oregon State in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.

You had an idea that at some point, the Jacksonville Jaguars would select a quarterback. Some fans thought it would be earlier in the Draft to give Gardner Minshew some competition. But in the sixth round, the team selected Jake Luton out of Oregon State.

During his career for the Beavers, he appeared in 23 games, 21 of which he started. He threw for 42 touchdowns and 5227 yards in his career.

The Jaguars quarterback situation is quite different than it was just a year ago. Gone is Nick Foles, who was traded for a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft from the Chicago Bears. Starter Gardner Minshew was drafted last year in the sixth round where he caught lightning in a bottle and proved he was the future of the franchise.

Joshua Dobbs is the only other quarterback on the roster at the moment. Adding Luton to the mix allows head coach Doug Marrone to have three arms to work with. It’s also possible that Jaguars may still seek a veteran to come in and complete once the Draft is over.

At 6-foot-6 and 224 pounds, Luton is a big kid with some limitations. Per Lance Zierlein of,  he worked in a pro-style offense which is a little bit different than what the Jaguars figure to run this year under coordinator Jay Gruden. He will need to adapt to a more West Coast style of offense.

"“Luton is an intriguing developmental quarterback with good size, adequate accuracy, and an NFL arm,” Zierlein wrote.“He’s operated in a pro-style passing attack with plenty of play-action and has the ability to push the ball into space both intermediate and deep. He values the football with few fumbles and interceptions during his career, but he’s more of a ‘ball delivery’ passer than one who works through progressions and picks the defense apart.”"

Because of his size, he is not the most mobile passer and could have issues with the Jacksonville Jaguars offense of line, which is still a question mark for 2020.

Luton isn’t the only player the Jaguars selected on the offensive side of the ball in the sixth round as they nabbed Tyler Davis, a tight end out of Georgia Tech.

Davis, at 6’4″ and 250 pounds is a player who has a lot of work to do but might work out as a developmental player.

"“Despite not being invited to the NFL draft combine, Davis drew the attention of NFL scouts with his size, athleticism, and versatility, all of which were on display at Tech’s March 11 pro day. In days leading up to the draft, Davis had conversations with half of the league’s teams, including Jacksonville,” writes Ken Sugiura of"
