With new general manager Dave Caldwell promising to bring in some fresh talent to compete at the quarterback position, it is not surprising that the Jaguars have been spotted chatting up some quarterback in Mobile, AL before the beginning of Senior Bowl practices.

RosterWatch reports that the Jaguars have spent Sunday talking with NC State's Mike Glennon, Oklahoma's Landry Jones and Florida State's E.J. Manuel.

Glennon is considered by most to be the top ranked quarterback of the three, despite his underwhelming collegiate stats. The 6-5, 232 pound passer completed 58.5 percent of his passes in 2012 with 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, albeit with a poor receiving corps.

Jones had the statistics to go with his top physical skills; however, he struggled at times with decision-making and is projected as a mid-round selection. At 6-4, 220 pounds, Jones has plenty of physical talent and completed 66.1 percent of his passes in 2012 to go with 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Similar to Jones, Manuel also struggled to realize his physical potential, although the statistics would seem to prove otherwise. At 6-4, 220 pounds, Manuel has plenty of athleticism and throwing talent, but underwhelmed as a starter, despite completing 68 percent of his passes in 2012.

Update (4:35 p.m. ET):

Alex Dunlap of RosterWatch also reports that the Jaguars talked with Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson. Many have considered Wilson to be a first round prospect with Glennon, despite an underwhelming senior campaign in which he threw 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, a step back from his 24 to 6 ratio in his junior year.

Update (4:48 p.m. ET):

Mike Loyko of NFL Draft Scout and reports the Jaguars talked to Miami (Ohio) quarterback Zac Dysert, bringing the total to five. The 6-3, 228-pound quarterback completed 62.9 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, but has been considered anywhere from a second round to sixth round prospect.
