Blaine Gabbert is more accurate out of play-action

Mike Ehrmann

Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert completes 13.3% more of his passes on play-action compared to just dropping back to pass.

On the 2012 season, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is completing 55.7 percent of his passes, which is nearly a full 5 percent higher than his rookie season. Gabbert's accuracy on some throws still leaves a lot to be desired and he's dealt with drops, but it's been improved.

One area Gabbert seems to be decent at is throwing from play-action, where his completion percentage is a full 13 percent higher than non play-action pass attempts. With Maurice Jones-Drew in the backfield to suck in and freeze defenders, it's not all that surprising and probably something the Jaguars need to do more of. It will be interesting to see how it changes with Rashad Jennings in the lineup.
