With the 33rd pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars do not plan to pick a quarterback.
In a piece of good news for Blaine Gabbert and bad news for Jacksonville fans who want a change, PFT’s Mike Florio is hearing that the Jaguars do not plan to draft a quarterback with the first pick in tonight’s second round. The buzz is that the Jaguars want to bolster the secondary by selecting either Florida International safety Jonathan Cyprien or Mississippi State cornerback Johnthan Banks.
The Jaguars have had all day to field calls and talk trade, and there’s still a good chance that they’ll make a trade with a team that covets Geno Smith, Matt Barkley or Ryan Nassib. So there’s still plenty of intrigue about quarterbacks at the top of the second round.
But if the Jaguars don’t pull the trigger on a trade, look for them to draft defense.
