Washington Redskins Trade Pick; Jacksonville Jaguars Select Blaine Gabbert With Tenth Overall Pick

With the 10th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins traded the pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars then selected Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Now, the Jaguar fans can see the end of the David Garrard era as Gabbert is the future of the Jacksonville franchise. Garrard, coming off a good season, now will look over his shoulder with the heir apparent in place. Gabbert is an accurate quarterback (except he struggles with the deep pass), but he never wowed at Missouri. He didn't dominate the conference as Sam Bradford once did. He has the talent, especially in a short West Coast passing game, but I don't know if he'll pan out. That uncertainty is good if you're a Texans fan since the Jaguars are a division rival.

The Jacksonville Jaguars once again get their guy and once again make people scratch their heads with their draft pick.
