2013 NFL Draft: Jaguars GM David Caldwell and quarterbacks

US PRESSWIRE

New Jaguars general manager David Caldwell has seen the effects for a Top 5 quarterback.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell will have to make a big decision on what to do at the quarterback position, but if he ultimately decides that he will draft one he's been in organizations before who've done so successfully.

Caldwell's first season with the Indianapolis Colts in 1998 saw the team draft Peyton Manning with the first overall pick and it shaped the franchise from there. In Caldwell's first year with the Atlanta Falcons in 2008, the team drafted Matt Ryan with the third overall pick. Ryan, unlike Manning, wasn't viewed as a sure fire hit by everyone and had stretches of mediocre play at Boston College.

The Jaguars currently hold the second overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and have big questions at quarterback with Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne. There might also be the chance to spend a draft pick on what many consider the top quarterback in the 2013 Draft in Geno Smith if the Kansas City Chiefs decide to pass on him.

Whatever direction the team goes, Caldwell has seen the lasting effects of hitting on a quarterback first hand.
