2013 NFL Draft: Jaguars 'are taking' Ryan Nassib if he's available in 2nd round, per report

In three seasons at Syracuse, Nassib's completion percentage, passing yardage and touchdowns consistently improved.


The Jaguars have made it known that they intend to add competition at the quarterback position and the feeling around the NFL is that they'll have Ryan Nassib as the guy to do so if he goes unselected in the first round on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Nassib had a private workout with the Jaguars earlier in the month, but they've had contact of some sort with just about every quarterback prospect.

A three-year starter at Syracuse, Nassib is a solidly built (6-2, 227) quarterback that finished his senior season with 3,753 yards passing, 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on a team that finished the year 8-5 overall and earned a 36-14 victory over Geno Smith's West Virginia Mountaineers in the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl.

In each of his three seasons with the team, Nassib's completion percentage, passing yardage and passing touchdown numbers improved.

After Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone was hired by the Buffalo Bills, most draft projections have suggested that the Bills would be the team most interested in Nassib. So much so that many believe they could select him with the eighth-overall selection.
