Blaine Will Learn From The Sidelines

Jacksonville Jaguars first round draft pick Blaine Gabbert will start the season as the team’s third quarterback by way of Nate Davis of USA Today.

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio announced that veteran Luke McCown will initially be David Garrard’s primary backup under center.

“It’s a bigger deal to the people on the outside,” said Gabbert, the 10th pick of the 2011 draft, on Thursday.

“We look at it as we’re quarterbacks, and if Dave goes down for some horrible reason, that we have to be ready to play. We haven’t gone over who’s ranked on the depth chart. We just know Dave’s the starter.”
