The Jacksonville Jaguars held a Fan Forum event on Tuesday night, which allowed fans to ask questions to head coach Gus Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell. A lot of the fan questions naturally centered around the NFL Draft and the quarterback position.
Caldwell gave a little bit of insight into what attributes he looks for in a quarterback when evaluating them.
"Anticipation, decision making and accuracy." Dave on what he looks for in a QB. Says spread systems don’t show this enough in college.— Casey Ayers (@caseyayers) January 29, 2014
Pocket passer or dynamic, moving QB? "For sustainability, #1 thing is to win with their arm. Pocket passer + some mobility ideal." -Dave— Casey Ayers (@caseyayers) January 29, 2014
Personally from what I've watched, three players stick out to me possessing these attributes. Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and San Jose State's David Fales.
Speaking of Bridgewater, Caldwell was asked directly about him.
I asked the Teddy question. Dave said he has 3 attributes he mentioned earlier, bit light in frame to withstand 16 games. Viable prospect.— Casey Ayers (@caseyayers) January 29, 2014
Dave said because Teddy is a junior, they haven’t been able to speak with him yet. Need to see what "makes him tick."— Casey Ayers (@caseyayers) January 29, 2014
Could mean something, could be nothing but it's interesting to see the three attributes Caldwell noted that he looked for specifically.
