Jags seek several starters in draft, just not a QB

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The rebuilding Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping to get several instant starters in the NFL draft.

They could be at just about any position - except quarterback.

Although owner Shad Khan said the team would draft as many as two signal callers, general manager Dave Caldwell made it clear none of the quarterbacks in this year's draft is ready to play right away. Not even for Jacksonville, which already has made Chad Henne the starter for 2014.

"I think the majority of this (quarterback) class has a ways to go," Caldwell said.

The Jaguars have the third overall pick in Thursday night's first round - selecting in the top 10 for the seventh consecutive year - and 10 choices thereafter. With a roster still being overhauled after winning just six games over the last two seasons, Jacksonville would prefer to trade down from No. 3 and garner even more picks.
