The Jacksonville Jaguars don’t necessarily need to replace their quarterback, Blake Bortles, via this NFL Draft. But they’d be silly not to and have made all the overtures about that being the intention in 2019. The Jaguars could always make a run at soon-to-be free-agent quarterback Nick Foles, who won’t be franchise tagged by the Philadelphia Eagles. But until that happens, the Jags need a QB in a bad way.
With the Giants taking Dwayne Haskins, a little mini run on signal-callers commences with Jacksonville grabbing the consensus No. 2 quarterbacking prospect in this year’s class, Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray.
