The Jacksonville Jaguars appeared to make their choice at quarterback this offseason when they traded Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears. That left Gardner Minshew and Joshua Dobbs as the two QBs on the roster. They’ve now added some developmental competition. The team drafted Oregon State quarterback in the sixth round with the 189th overall pick.
The Jaguars added Foles a year ago to be their starter, but a broken collarbone in Week 1 opened the door for Minshew to get an unexpected opportunity. MInshew finished the season completing 60.6 percent of passes for 3,271 yards, with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. He was briefly benched for Foles during the season, but ended up playing in 14 games.
The team acquired Dobbs last September and he did not appear in any games. Minshew is expected to secure the starting job this fall, but the addition of Luton opens the door for some competition.
