Last year, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected a QB in the sixth round, some guy named Gardner Minshew II. This year, another QB is picked in the sixth round. Jake Luton played at Oregon State, but began his college career at Idaho, then went to Ventura Community College. He finished his career at Oregon State, where he threw for 2,174 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions.

Luton (pronounced loo-ten) is a tall QB with okay accuracy and enough arm strength to operate in the intermediate levels of the field. He has experience working in a pro-style offense, and rarely puts the ball in harms way. He’s not afraid to take shots, however, as he has a 50 percent completion rate on deep passes. He also has a 136.2 passer rating on throws of 20+ yards.

He should come to Jacksonville and challenge Josh Dobbs as the backup quarterback behind Minshew II.
