LATEST NEWS
04/29/2013 - Arizona quarterback Matt Scott and Vanderbilt's Jordan Rodgers signed as undrafted free agents with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Scott reunites with Frank Scelfo, who was the quarterbacks coach at Arizona and holds the same position in Jacksonville. He has 30 years' coaching experience. Rodgers doesn't have the arm, athleticism, accuracy or affluence of big brother Aaron. He's a punky pocket passer, much different than Scott -- a hybrid quarterback with wheels but not a sharp ability to needle the ball through tight passing windows. The Jaguars present an opportunity, even if not in the short term, for Scott to carve a niche and potentially win the starting job.

Former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are splitting first-team reps this summer for the Jaguars. Neither has had sustained success in the NFL. Scott was projected as a third- or fourth-round pick by NFLDraftScout.com. He's 6 feet 3, 213 pounds with a 4.63 40 but showed enough polish at his pro day in Tucson -- on the heels of an eye-opening session at the Scouting Combine -- that many projected he could be selected even higher. This just in -- it wasn't the year of the quarterback. Only three -- EJ Manuel, Geno Smith and Mike Glennon -- were drafted in the first three rounds. - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange
