Player Outlook

The Jaguars picked a project at quarterback when they took Washington State's Gardner Minshew. Barely over 6 feet tall, Minshew shined in Mike Leach's air-raid offense, completing an unheard of 70.7 percent of his throws for 7.1 yards per attempt. The offense wasn't overly splashy - a big focus was on getting the ball out to short-area targets - but Minshew stood tall in the pocket with good mechanics and got the job done. Minshew was a nomad of sorts during his college career, committing to or starting a game for five different schools, but his senior year cemented him as a backup NFL quarterback. It's hard to recommend drafting him in any Fantasy league.

Player News
  • The Jaguars selected Minshew in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 178th overall. Minshew (6-foot-1, 225 pounds) has nothing in the way of pedigree, transferring to Washington State as a graduate after starting on and off at East Carolina before that. He was very productive for the Cougars, completing 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,779 yards, 38 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but he doesn't show as much in the way of tools and might falter outside of the favorable Mike Leach Air Raid. Minshew completed only 57.9 percent of his passes for 6.9 YPA at East Carolina, for instance. There's not much reason to think Minshew can even compete with a Cody Kessler type, so he might be destined for the practice squad.
