The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't decided on who their start quarterback is going to be, instead opting to have an open competition at the position. It's currently believed the Jaguars aren't going to officially name a starter until around game three of the NFL preseason.

You get the idea coming out of minicamp that the starting quarterback won't be decided until the second or third preseason game.

You can make a case for just about any of the quarterbacks to start, especially with the reports out of OTA practices that no one has really stood out from the pack. I share the popular belief with reporters who cover the team that barring a massive meltdown in August, Blaine Gabbert likely winds up the starter when everything is settled.

It makes the most sense to roll the dice on Gabbert again, especially with the new staff and no one else really taking hold. The Wild Card in the situation is certainly Mike Kafka, who the Jaguars claimed when he was waived by the Patriots.
