Blaine Gabbert Traded From Jacksonville to San Francisco for 6th Round Draft Pick

St. Louis Rams v Jacksonville Jaguars
Blaine Gabbert, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, was just traded to the 49ers for a sixth round draft choice, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. At least Jacksonville got good return on that investment, right?

Calling Gabbert a bust is a disservice to busts everywhere. He did absolutely nothing with the Jaguars, though one could argue he was surrounded by garbage.

Now the question becomes: Do the Jaguars consider a QB with the 3rd pick in the draft? A week ago, when they retained Chad Henne, it didn’t seem like drafting a QB 3rd overall made sense with Gabbert also on the roster. And was there value in taking one of the good-but-not-great QBs third when the team had so many other needs? Now that they’ve unloaded Gabbert, the door once again opens for the team to possibly draft Bridgewater-Manziel-Bortles 3rd.

My guess, eight weeks out, is that they focus on defense 3rd (Khalil Mack makes the most sense) and take a QB in the second round. I’ll have my next Mock Draft sometime next week after free agency has cooled.
